  1. Hmm, I like the idea of this, but I’d much rather have a positive symbol that expresses what we’re for rather than what we’re against. Or is this more like being in mourning?

    • Nancy,
      We should be empowered to state and show what it is we are against. This shows no weakness and in fact demonstrates a strength to proclaim an injustice. We need not have a positive “alternative” to end a negative reality!

  3. If you agree with opting out of these ridiculous standardized tests, please help.
    I am compiling statistics for my book TEACHING IN 2013. I AM A PUBLISHED AUTHOR OF 4 BOOKS, INCLUDING “THE QUIXOTIC TEACHER.” PLEASE HELP AND…PLEASE TAKE THIS POLL:
    DO YOU AGREE WITH STANDARDIZED TESTING FOR CHILDREN?
