The best education blog

Congratulations to Michael Bérubé for thrashing the rest of us in the finals of the Best Education Blog Award.

In a bizarre twist, the defunct homeschool blog, Spunky Homeschool, came close to winning thanks to a massive “homeschoolers unite” meme. And then, in a further twist, it was found that enthusiastic supporters of both Bérubé and Spunky Homeschool had been cheating – so about 1500 illegitimate votes were docked. In the end, though, the academics won the day, and Michael Bérubé cleaned up with 38.62% of the total 16,000 votes.

As for Faith & Theology.... Well, everyone knows that we Aussies don’t like losing – so I won’t even mention the tiny percentage of votes that this blog received.... (On the bright side, I think we can safely assume that no theologians were cheating on behalf of this blog!)

Anyway, thanks to everyone who voted, and congratulations to Professor Bérubé, who even managed to defeat the formidable army of homeschooled Christian soldiers that rallied against him.

Cheating homeschoolers? Who would have thought it.......

Wave farewell to ethics when the cheaters come on the scene. For them, the end always justifies the means, no matter how evil or selfish those means are.

Oh well, at least you Aussies won the Ashes.

That 1.71% should help to keep your feet on the ground! ;-)

You can console yourself by the fact that you're on the top 10...
It reminds me of my uncle who was proud to be the second best student...of a class of two students!
