For the past couple of years I thought about having my own blog, but I didn’t know how to do it. Then I read someone’s blog on, and there was a button saying something like “press here and start your own blog.” And I did it a few weeks ago, and thousands of people have logged on since then.

This is what is so great. Aside from my main readership, which is in the U.S., the blog has readers in Canada, New Zealand, Australia, the U.K., Japan, Russia, Nepal, Turkey, Mexico, the United Arab Emirates, Hong Kong, Sweden, India, and elsewhere.

That is pretty wonderful. We are all concerned about the future of education. And whether education will create a better world or a world of test-taking robots and corporate profits. I vote for the former. I will continue to speak out and write against the latter.
