Professor, the esteemed Dr. Ravitch got splattered today by the NY Times and a few others. I didn't see the story in my national edition of the paper, but Eduwonk has it.

And here's the article:

Look soon before the Times shuts down the free link.

Say hi to Dr. Ravitch. I am a fan.

1. My name is spelled W-O-L-F like the animal I am. No E at the end.

2. Thank you for the super annotation. I have about 100 or so others that could benefit from similar attention by the Professor.

HEEEELLLLLLPPPPPPPPPPP........!!!!

Far Rockaway High School is burning down!!!!.....from within....

sports teams cancelled, a pathetic union "not-leader", wolves in the hallways(from Den Tweed), no options for kids, kids scheduled for classes they do NOT need OR want and none-not-a-drop of money....(I am talking cold hard cash...in briefcases....NONE...!!!

...and I told my kids....if there is really a fire......if you see smoke...or flames.....RUN!....'cus I sure will....

Anyone have a fire extinguisher....or know anyone with a small hook n' ladder company.....maybe if they work for the DOE ...then Far Rockaway can take a loan(from the teacher's pension fund??sound familiar???) and ink a contract...long term of course!!

...Please respond ASAP! MADAY!!

The Tan Man Dan, Can!

West Beast East Beast

Upon an island hard to reach,
the East Beast sits upon his beach.
Upon the west beach sits the West Beast.
Each beach beast thinks he's the best beast.
Which beast is best?... Well, I thought at first
that the East was the best and the West was the worst.
Then I looked again from the west to the east
and I liked the beast on the east beach the least.

"Oh Say Can You Say?"
Dr. Suess

Humorous and sad.
Humorous because it illustrates idiotic confusion over identical monsters.
Sad because most whole (lotta bullsh!t) language kids will never be able to read well enough to correctly read the passage.
