This blog was started on April 12, 2012.

Today is its 8th anniversary.

During that time, you have been wonderful readers. Your support has kept me going. I’ve shared with you the news stories, posts by bloggers I respect, occasional humor, and even some personal advice.

My goal for eight years has been to create a broad awareness of the failure of privatization and standardized testing to improve education. The movement to save and improve our nation’s public schools is strong and getting stronger. When someday this terrible pandemic ends, we will continue our struggle for better education for all.

The blog is closing in on 36 million page views. There have been more than 600,000 comments by you.

All in all, the blog has given me a great opportunity to speak my mind and to engage in lively conversation every day with you and to learn from you, not only your views but what’s happening in your community and state.

Here is my gift to you. Open and enjoy.

If you want to show your appreciation for my work, send a copy of SLAYING GOLIATH to a legislator or school board member.

Thank you!
