Ahh... The Purposes of Our Schools

It is good to see someone speaking out against the ugly recent portrayals of teachers as somehow the problem of our schools. I'm not sure when I subscribed to the Journal of Educational Controversy blog, but I've enjoyed a number of their posts. When I went to their website, I found this interesting math education article before I found the blog I've been reading.

William Ayers is a professor of education at the University of Illinois. He's also the radical friend the right tried to use against Obama. Obama unfortunately felt he had to distance himself from this passionate, well-spoken man.

I've been gathering links to good pieces reviewing Waiting for Superman. I'll post those after I've seen it.


  1. Sue, can you email me at sunflowermom38@gmail.com? I don't see how to contact you anywhere on your blogs, so I'm not sure how else to get in touch with you. :)

    I am the president of a homeschool resource center in California and I would like to talk to you about your math salon idea. I LOVED the video and want to ask you some questions about it the salon!

  2. Hi Tina, I'll gladly email you but wanted to point out that my email is on my profile on the right side of the page, a ways down. I wrote "on gmail" to avoid the attacks of the spambots. ;^)

  3. Sue, I love to see outspoken comments about the current trend to blame teachers for our broken system in education. Thank you for helping to get the word out, as I am.

    I invite you to join my blog posts.

  4. Hmm, I don't see anything at your blog about this issue...
