A local teacher has written a guest opinion in the Press-Citizen that is apparently in partial response to mine. I say “apparently” because he seems to be responding an article that is very different from the actual one that I wrote. Still, discussion is good, and I have posted a comment and may post more. I have also invited the author to engage in an email exchange about the issues he and I have raised, which I would then post on this blog.
By the way, for the record, the background of this blog is not meant to evoke Pink Floyd’s “The Wall.” It is a reference to the idea of “talking to a brick wall,” which is how I often feel when trying to raise issues about the schools with school administrators. (See, for example, this post.)
