We Can At Least Encourage The Crazy Ones Congratulations to Will Fitzhugh of The Concord Review

For the better part of two decades, school improvement has focused on raising the reading and math scores of low-performing students. This charge has undeniable merit, but it has also meant a lack of attention to students eager to pursue learning that stretches beyond the corners of state standards.


Fall Journal almost ready! We're in the proofing process. We have several great articles!

I'm a teacher. I am supposed to teach students to stand up to bullies, to speak truth to power, to not accept it when others are belittled, to fight against injustice, racism, harassment - you get the picture. I think that Billy Bush and the other men who were with Donald Trump when he talked about his attempted sexual exploits with women should be called out for not standing up to something that frankly is not funny. Do they think it's OK for men to speak about their wives, daughters, moms, sisters, etc like a piece of meat, as less than human? We have seen where treating people as less than human has placed us over the centuries. Billy Bush should not serve as someone in the public eye if he accepts that kind of belittling and humiliation of women. Where are the men in all of this? Until all men say do not speak about women this way, things will remain the same. Until all white people stand up and say it is unacceptable to treat Native Americans, African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans as the "other" and tolerate racism, injustice, lack of access to good health care, education, opportunities, etc. it is just the same as men accepting nasty and disgusting jokes about women. How can I and other teachers help students to be strong and speak against things that are just plain wrong, when the adults in the public eye tolerate these same actions? We are all on this tiny planet together and we apparently work very hard to divide and conquer each other, even in our own country and it has to stop - men accepting injustice against women is no different than whites accepting injustice against persons of color or persons of color accepting injustice against others, be they white or other groups. Create and live the kind of world you want. Be the justice and the power.

Historians Politely Remind Nation To Check What's Happened In Past Before Making Any Big Decisions

WASHINGTON—With the United States facing a daunting array of problems at home and abroad, leading historians courteously reminded the nation Thursday that when making tough choices, it never hurts to stop a moment, take a look at similar situations from the past, and then think about whether the dec…
