Who woulda thunk it? I cranked up this blog back on April 20, 2015 and had absolutely no idea what to expect, what I was doing and such. Thankfully response has been way better than I ever expected and we’ve now had 100,000 views.
I am genuinely humbled and grateful that so many folks have stopped by. Obviously there are quite a number of folks who share my feelings that public schools get way too much blame and way too little credit these days–as well as interested in seeing how politics and education are so closely intertwined.
I have now posted 168 times. In addition, since April 20 I have written ten articles that went to all daily and weekly newspapers in Alabama, made presentations to ten groups and drove 8,340 miles looking for stories, visiting schools, talking to principals, teachers and students and attending meetings.
Obviously you can’t please everyone. Which is why one state representative and one state school board member accused me of lying. (But when I asked each to tell me where and when, neither responded.) But feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. And feedback is something I greatly appreciate. Many folks email me about things going on in their local schools, send me articles from hither, thither and yon, and share their thoughts.
is how you track me down. Look forward to hearing from you.
Just a few weeks ago my friend, Dr. Diane Ravitch, said that she has now had 23 MILLION views on her blog. Maybe I should tell her I’m right behind. LOL
