Today, two new articles I wrote were published by The Huffington Post.
Spelling Porn (about the televised National Spelling Bee)
When the Jumbotron says, “Read,” You Read! (about the merits of “summer reading”)
and my earlier article
The Surge Against First Graders (about the Reading First scandal)
Then comment, cross-post, dig, subscribe – anything necessary to tell the world that different perspectives on education need to be expressed in the media.
