|Introduction||I am interested in interaction, care, growth, development, evolution, interlution, and pleasure redefined. I recently eanred a PhD, but I value the education garnered from my feet more. I am now professing though I have to confess that I'm dubious about much of what will inevitably be professed. I intend to use this space for staying in relative touch with students, teachers, mentors, friends, and theorists. Ideally, this space will serve as a platform for educational reconstruction. Educational reconstruction, eternally underway despite tired histories, fascinates me. I would like to know how people become people. While some argue that public education is essential to the process, I am not so sure. I am, for sure, sure, that walmart schools will only make things worse. What I would like to do is reimagine, reorganize, and rejuvinate communities, families, and individuals engaged in democratic projects. At present, despite their flaws, I see "public schools" as being an important, and perhaps essential, component of such a project... I am currently leading a national effort to repeal the No Child Left Behind Farce.|
