Top 50 Education Tweets of 2012
It is hard to believe that this is the forth installment of the "Best Tweets in Education" series. But after the 2009, 2010, 2011 lists, we have decided to do something a little different this year - we've decided to make it a contest, which was a great choice because this has been a very interesting year in education and you can certainly see it in the tweets.
From the funny to the down-right serious, comments on Twitter about education this year have tackled a wide variety of topics. Unfortunately, the majority of those commented or discussed the negative aspects of what is happening in the world of higher education. From rising cost of tuition to the lack of quality in the classroom, some would argue that higher education has seen better days.
But, that does not mean there weren't some high points
- there were those who took to Twitter with a humorous
view on the current state of higher education - finding
the lighter side of a bad situation.
But good or bad aside, here is our list of the top tweets in education, 2012 edication.
