"A child's learning is the function more of the characteristics of his classmates than those of the teacher." James Coleman, 1972

 The poets poetActually it's the same news but good or bad depending on whether you like what I write or post.
I haven't posted or blogged for two weeks because I took a marvelous drive around Ireland and Northern Ireland. Pictures have been posted. 
Nor will I be posting or blogging from Monday,June 29th until I sufficiently recover from the open heart Aortic Valve replacement Surgery I must have because of a congenital defect they call a "bicuspid aortic valve". Oh well, another thing I can blame on my parents. 
There have been too many reports of things bad ranging from issues in education and the testing cancer that seems to be spreading more rapidly and Pearson running teachers' and students' lives more and more. 
The 2016 election list of potential candidates ranges from Bernie Sanders, who is at smart, sane, and trustworthy, to Hillary Clinton who in my opinion is 2 out of those three, to the Republican list that gets sillier and sillier. Donald Trump? Really?
Finally, people in this country are crazy. Nine people get shot in a Charleston church by a mad racist and we still have to debate over gun control and racism? It all makes me want to go back to Ireland, drink some Guiness and maybe write as the Irish do.
One last thing. When Jack Paar sends out his notice about his new documentary, "CORPORATIZED", do your utmost to support it. It promises to be our battle cry and anti "Waiting for Superman". 
We are the super men and women.
I'll be back after surgery, and I promise no scar pictures.
