Brief Biography

Alexander Russo is a writer, blogger, and author who has been published and/or quoted in Slate, The Washington Monthly, Washington Post, Huffington Post, New York Times, and USA Today. His website, “This Week in Education,” is one of the nation's longest-running education blogs. He was a 2009 Spencer Education Journalism Fellow at Columbia University and his 2011 book, Stray Dogs, Saints, and Saviors (Jossey-Bass/Wiley), chronicled a group of teachers' attempts to rescue a broken Los Angeles high school with the help of the charismatic head of a unionized charter school network. Before he began writing, Russo served as an education adviser to two US senators and the chancellor of the New York City public schools, and (briefly) as a high school English teacher and education researcher.
