It features access to a huge variety of educational resources with user-friendly interfaces and strong user support services. The service is provided by the University of Massachusetts Amherst with the assistance of other UMass campuses, the MassNet state college network, Westfield State College, Mount Holyoke College, and Franklin County Technical School. UMassK12 is available from many dialup access locations around the state.

--Teachers' Net is a terrific resource for conversation (live and later) with peers. Lots of other useful resources (e.g., grade-level chatrooms, lesson plan library, message boards).

--Teachers' Investigations in Alternative Assessments. An evolving project at UMass Lowell on assessment to which we hope you will contribute. Examples from several disciplines and from elementary through college teachers. This is a wonderful tool for teachers and students alike. For more information, visit the site or write to Dr. Judith Kelly.

--The Philadelphia Education Fund. An educational discussion site that deals with topics of educational concern. It appears to be a site that posts the commentary to a Web page thus a user must access the Web page to read it. It would be interesting to follow the discussions there.

The EEE journal provides teachers, education faculty and students, and administrators with timely and professional coverage of current equity issues, especially those that have legal and economic ramifications.
