Take a trip across the pond and explore the British educational landscape by visiting School Gate, a blog written by award-winning journalist Sarah Ebner.
Geared toward parents and educators, School Gate covers a wide range of topics, many of which will sound familiar to the American ear. Ebner comments with insight on national curriculum standards, wondering if the government really has students’ best interest in mind. She also jumps into the school lunch debate by asking who is ultimately responsible for children’s health. These weightier discussions are counterbalanced with levity and humor; posts like Ebner’s 15 most inspiring teachers in film are breezy and fun to read.
