Beyond Your School's Tattoo

A few years ago The Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology released a study on the trend of tattooing. In it, they estimated that 24% of the population between the ages of 18 and 50 had at least one tattoo. But that was five years ago. It is likely much higher now. And the most popula...

Hope, Title IX, and Dreams of the World Cup

It hadn't occurred to me that the U.S. would actually lose to Japan in the World Cup Soccer Final last Sunday. Our women's team was magical. They came from behind against Brazil and won on penalty kicks and the rest seemed pre-ordained. All that was missing was Al Michaels roaring into the micro...

The Summer Triangle

Our stars mock us. I realized that this morning when I read about the Summer Triangle which will appear tonight in the eastern sky just after dark. There are three stars in the Summer Triangle and while they appear to look the sameā€¦ they are not even in the same constellation. Altair is 17 li...

The General's Lament

Now I am conflicted. Usually when some CEO from a dysfunctional industry shares his or her insights on how I can better do my job as an educator, it is easy to dismiss.

And not-so effective models, too. And because,...

SURVIVORS

Isaac got in between his mom and her boyfriend when they were fighting and caught the flying coffee pot right on the corner of his cheekbone. Even through the stitches he refused to cry. Andre lost his little sister when she rode her bicycle in front of the trolley. Erica has a parent in prison. ...

DANCING ON THE BLACKTOP

It has been a while since my last contribution. If that sounds to some like the opening line of confession.... perhaps it is. I confess. I was a party to denying our kids. We received our test scores from the California Standards Test a few weeks ago and we danced for a while because we knew o...

Two Americas, One Storm

There is another "Achievement Gap" in America and it is gathering on the near horizon like a storm cloud. Mark my words. That storm will come and we will see our future as a nation engulfed in another predictable catastrophe that didn't have to happen. I want Arne Duncan and our President to he...

Selling Out School for a Storm Cloud

For as long as I can remember educators have tried to figure out how to infuse more technology into our daily school lives. There has been great strides forward, promising practices, extraordinary new systems that have profoundly improved teaching and learning. There has also been stubborn resi...

A Race to the Mulberry Stump

Oh. So now it's a race? I like races. I am a sprinter so I am used to running races. I have been in a lot of them and the more races you have been in the more victories (and the more losses) you earn. The more strategies you can leverage. "The mulberry stump, a hundred yards ahead in the clear...
