The Dallas Morning News is losing a good education reporter. I believe today is his last day. Kent Fischer has done much to shed light on Dallas educational issues. He wrote numerous informative articles that will forever be a part of the archives of Dallas ISD history.
Without Kent Fischer, perhaps there would not have been a Dallas ISD Blog--probably the legacy that will continue after his departure. He was a primary mover in establishing that online community, and hopefully it will go on for many years into the future. There are not many places where the free flow of opinion is possible.
As Dale Kaiser previously reported, Kent Fischer and Tawnell Hobbs have been awarded the 2009 Texas State Teachers Association School Bell Award for the Dallas ISD education blog.
Kent Fischer - a good education reporter, moving on with his life but leaving a legacy of service and a place where people of different opinions will continue to discuss important local educational issues.
