Check out "Intercepts," the new Blog of Mike Antonucci and the Education Intelligence Agency

Mike Antonucci of the Education Intelligence Agency - aka "EIA" and a selection of unprintable name inside the NEA's Washington, D.C. headquarters - has a new blog called Intercepts. Mike calls Intercepts "a listening post for monitoring the world of public education and teachers unions." Believe me, nobody does that better than this guy.

Also check out EIA's new web site. For years, Mike has burrowed inside the NEA and the AFT to get the facts about those organizations' political activism, salaries, staff disputes, merger squabbles and just about everything else of significance in one of the most powerful political influences in America.

From the EIA web site:

"Mike is the director of the Education Intelligence Agency and has covered the education beat since 1993. Education Week calls him 'the nation's leading observer -- and critic -- of the two national teachers' unions and their affiliates.' Mike's own writings have appeared in The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Investor's Business Daily, The American Enterprise, and many other periodicals, and his work has been favorably cited in The Washington Post, Boston Globe, Philadelphia Inquirer, New York Post, and a host of other prominent daily newspapers."

If you are at all interested in education and politics, Intercepts is a guaranteed must-read.
