  1. Well…maybe it does show up in some schools. Yes it does at CPE and Mission Hill and many other wonderful places that know of. Thanks for reminding us–the hard data we need to understand most is right there before us–direct, “objective” and human–giving us information every moment they are alive. If we bothered to keep our eys on them.

    • Thanks for the comment Deb. There is so much “data” that reformers ignore. And by doing so they ignore the fact that teaching children is an act of nurturing a human relationship of trust. Trust that will allow both child and teacher to take risks and explore the world.

  2. Happy test takers…correct?
