@NPR @WHYY does #optout story. Cuts United Opt Out’s voice of truth, ME!

On Monday morning when I got to my desk I noticed that the voice mail light was blinking on my phone.  I picked up the receiver and went through the steps to retrieve my messages.  There was only one and it was a producer from NPR the WHYY affiliate (Philadelphia, New Jersey, Delaware) inquiring about my […]

Nevertheless, here’s a fantastic discussion from a journalism professor (right?) from NYU about the laziness of “he said, she said” […]

Recess coaching, really?

I heard this report today on NPR about this new thing called “recess coaching.”  You can also check with the non-profit organization called Playworks for more information on this movement.  Actually, the founder of this group was part of the discussion.
