Just in case some people thought I retired from the struggle to liberate our children from this evil insanity that seeks to reduce them to test scores. Like that old song: Ain't nobody gonna turn me around keep walking, keep talking, marching marching, right up to freedom land....
I haven't written, because my pen has run dry, not because I can't see the keyboard, the truth is I haven't written, because I am the thick of this fight to take back our schools. Like those Minute Men of old that fought for our independence in between the battles I have seeds to sow, and fields to plow.
I'm not weary,
Not slowing down,
Not broken down,
I'm looking up
I'm stepping up,
Ain't nobody gonna turn me around.
Sometimes I sound like a broken record,
Like I'm stuck in place,
But look closer people I am always moving.
Today I like to share a little conversation I had at the university this week.
