Forbes recently released its third annual "30 under 30" listing of the most influential twenty-somethings in a variety of industries. Education, missing from the inaugural 2012 list, became a category in 2013. The "30 under 30" lists for 2014 were just released, and the Education section (http://www.forbes.com/special-report/2014/30-under-30/education.html) includes some new faces (and some repeats) but K-12 practitioners are noticeably absent.
Well, how many of us READ Forbes? Since I'm guessing very few do, it's understandable that we collectively missed the call for reader submissions (http://www.forbes.com/special-report/2013/30-under-30-readers-submission...) - but judging from the looks of that page - perhaps it's just a spam-overrun red herring? (The page doesn't appear to be displaying properly; I'm wondering if that is because it was shut down now that voting is over. But I digress...)
Without taking anything away from the winners, some of whom are quite familiar to those of us in the educational trenches, who would you have nominated / like to see recognized in this way?
