an end

Just when I think I can step out of the ubercrap and pretend...I stop and realize that I'm not doing anybody any favors except people who don't need them.  I can't actually retool this blog to be something other than open and honest.  I haven't been able to post much new precisely because being superficial would defeat the purpose.

There are serious systemic and cultural issues that need to be addressed in order to truly reform our schools.  The system is still corrupt and it is still broken, it is merely hiding behind a curtain painted with pretty pictures of reform.  At least in my case, I think I can safely say that we are simply rebuilding the same old crap with a new face.

There's got to be a why to get this out there in the world, but I think it is safe to say that this blog is dead.

Be well. Take frequent sanity breaks. Write it all down someplace else for your eyes only.

And thank you.

Thank you for this record of your experience. Please do not take it down.

Thank you for what you've done for your kids in spite of all of the obstacles placed in front of you.
