To our readers:

You might have noticed that this site has been quiet for a while.

Carolyn, my co-editor and good friend, discovered she had a medical condition that needed to be treated immediately. Carolyn is recovering but is on continued medical care and will not be able to write her wonderful articles and keep everyone updated on issues affecting students and teachers in Seattle and beyond.

She wants to extend a huge thank-you to those in our community who have supported her through the last few months. Your food donations, cards, balloons, chocolates, visits, texts, emails and well wishes have gone a long way in helping her stay upbeat and positive.

The site will remain relatively quiet for now. I will continue to post on issues as they are brought to my attention but not as I used to do.

If you have an article or opinion related to education you would like to submit for publication, please let me know. All articles will be considered except for those that have anything to do with commercial enterprises promoting a product, an online service or a charter school.
