  • School Board Campaign

    Posted on December 2, 2006 by admin in Education.

    Folks, it is about time I threw my hat in the ring. I've been involved in politics from a policy and advocacy perspective for many years. Before that, I spent several years working part-time in adult literacy as both an instructor and board member. It is time I added regulatory oversight to the resume. I've […]

  • Finished With Putting Learning In Head, Part I

    Posted on December 17, 2004 by admin in Education.

    Well, through the American Military University, I just finished the A.A. that I originally started in 1988 at Illinois Central College. Unfortunately, your Friendly Neighborhood GloveTakerOffer wasn't ready for higher education in 1988. So, he dropped out and spent six years with a bad haircut. (I promise, no more third person speech in this posting.) […]

    Tracy Kurtinitis of the East Valley Tribune on Girl is suspended for inhaling helium: The only thing that got high was her voice. But taking a puff off a helium-filled balloon while decorating for the Friday night junior high school dance was enough to get Hayley Hoffman, 13, suspended for five days under Gilbert Unified […]

    Wil Wheaton on the age-old question of what to do when you run into your former nemesis: I’ve often wondered . . . if I ever ran into one of my childhood tormentors, what would I do? Pretend nothing ever happened? Cock-punch? Point and laugh? I don’t know . . . I’d like to think […]

  • Coercive Patriotism

    Posted on March 26, 2004 by admin in Education.

Public schools are institutions of coercion. Students are coerced to attend them. Parents are coerced to pay for them. A compulsory pledge has no more legal or moral authority than […]

    Posted on February 11, 2004 by admin in Education.
