Two Places At Once

Starting today, District 299 is going to appear here andat the Tribune’s new blog thingy, which is called Chicago Now. The Tribune folks were kind enough to ask me to join their effort, which includes a passel of local blogs and is meant to compete with the Huffington Post. The Catalyst folks were kind enough to share me.

The addition means more readers sharing what they know and think about Chicago schools, and a little bit more income for me to pay for diet Cokes and to help make improvements. You can go over there and check it out, or you can stay here and not miss a thing. Click below for more details.

The
posts will be the same. The posts will
appear at the same time. Remember: both sites remain under my sole control and
are completely independent. I will
continue to include content from any place that I find it, including
competitors. I will criticize any and
everyone who warrants it, including sponsors, as I have for the past four years.
There should be no interruption of service if you’ve signed up for a daily email or RSS
feed.

There are a couple of differences. The reader comments will not be identical. (I will “hoist” important comments into their
own posts so that important comments get posted in both places.) You can comment anonymously on both sites, though
the Tribune requires an email that is notverified. (I suggest using a random
email like john@gmail.com for those who are most
concerned about their privacy.)

It’s going to feel strange at first, but I’m really excited
about – with your help – bringing even more transparency, accountability, and
engagement to Chicago
schools.
