What you were reading in 2021
Here are the year’s most-read stories online in EdCal
January 10, 2022
You wanted to learn how schools were responding to learning loss and student grading in the COVID era. You wanted to know who won ACSA awards and what could be done to stop federal rules impacting the retirement income of educators.
These were just a few of the most viewed and most shared stories from the digital edition of EdCal during the calendar year 2021.
The digital edition of EdCal is published online the same day as the print edition.
“It’s safe to say that these stories and others were also read extensively in the print edition of EdCal,” said Michelle Carl, EdCal editor. “We can’t track how many reads an article gets in print, but the digital edition gives us an idea of which articles were the most important to our members.”
ACSA members who would like to switch to the digital-only subscription to EdCal and Leadership magazine can e-mail memberservices@acsa.org and request to become a digital subscriber.
“This year, dozens of ACSA members shared their experiences with their colleagues by writing an article,” Carl said. “All ACSA members are invited to help drive the conversation in education by contributing to EdCal.”
Members interested in submitting articles, photos or research dissertations to EdCal may send pitches or completed articles to mcarl@acsa.org.
