Seattle Education

For the news and views you might have missed

New look


Life is a series of actions and reactions, adjustments and readjustments, and so it is with our blog.

When I wrote the first post on this blog four years ago one quiet Saturday evening, I had no idea who, if anyone, would read what I had written. What was important to me at the time was that I sent it out in hopes that someone, anyone, would become informed of what was happening in Seattle, of what I saw.

Four years since and from what I know, from the stats that are available to me every hour of the day, more than just one person is reading what I and Sue write. There are many and those many want to see a variety of thoughts and observations that are shared here so we are changing and adjusting with the demand.

The new look will provide views of many of the most recent posts so that you can hopefully find what you are looking for quickly.

Keep coming back. We like the company.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    And yes it is only the beginning. There is a video that I must get up that explains that we have been under fire and are just now getting our artillery together and fighting back.

    Brian Jones has a wonderfully eloquent way of saying it in a video of a presentation that he gave in Portland a few weeks ago that I attended. I will get it up in the morning so check back then.

    I think you will enjoy it.

    Kudos, Dora! I think this new look is an improvement, visually and organizationally. Your blog was one of the key things that brought me into this issue. You’ve made a tremendous, positive difference for all parents, students and educators, in Seattle, and everywhere.

    But this is “only the beginning”. I think we’re at the crest of a wave here, as part of the nationwide fight against the privatization of our schools and for genuine education reform.

    Thanks for all you’ve done and will undoubtedly continue to do. But the best is indeed ahead of us.

    I am a retired teacher. Please keep up the fight against “high stakes testing.” This is for our young people, our colleagues and ultimately for our Democracy!

    Hate to be the naysayer, but this format makes it difficult to access the archives. I’m more interested inrecent posts rather than the most popular.

    Thanks. It looks so foreign to me. I have to get used to it.
