“If you want to witness a miracle, watch a teacher teach. And you will believe.”
It is my distinct honor to play host to a collection of excellent writers who share their ideas on education. If you’re used to reading my stuff, please take a few minutes to read the writings of my friends from here in the Rocket City. Their takes on education are all well worth your time.
Education is an amazing, miraculous process of communicating, uncovering and connecting with our brothers and sisters who are passing through this world with us. It is, to steal a line, our last, best hope of co-creating a world in which we would all want to live.
It is a miracle.
Come join in this miracle with a few of the best writers in the city.
- Jennifer Breuer, of Rocket City Mom, shares with us her conviction that our teachers are our heroes in “One of the Good Ones.”
- Ty Fauscett, of Dragonfire Online, calls for cutting the education “leaders” salaries down to a teacher’s level in “Education in Public Schools Today.” (Good idea, that one.)
- Heather Smith, of Calluna, reminds us that education requires an open-mind, especially towards the ideas that we think are settled in “Open Mind to Home School.”
- Nina Soden makes a case for school uniforms in “School Uniforms/Dress Codes – For or Against?“
- R S Buckner, of Seeking Him In A Crazy World, discusses the controversy over the naming of the new Lee High School that erupted last week and how to decide what’s best of your kids in “Change is in the air.”
- Lee and Shannon McBride, of Food from the Yard, provide clear, educational steps in planting trees in “Fall is for planting . . . TREES.”
- Courtney, of twirling on tiptoes, writes about the stresses that our teachers face everyday from first hand experience in “Parental Target.”
- Suzanne Haggerty, of Entirely Adequate, discusses the sheer joy going back to school in “Everybody back to school.”
- Harold, of unstable mind, also talks about going back to school to “remap” our brains in “Remapping my brain.”
- David Hitt. of Stories in My Pocket, talks about the joys of being a substitute teacher in “Back to school.”
- Heather McIngvale, of Tennessee Valley MOMS Network, shares a beautiful story of the importance of education that she learned from her mom in “A Mother’s Education.”
- And wrapping up the carnival this month is Carol Marks, of Carol Marks Online, shares the other side of the coin by opening up her story of a mother’s sacrifice for her son’s education in “Military School.”
Thank you Rocket City Bloggers for allowing me to learn from you all.
Education is a miracle.
Great job Russ!! and everyone 🙂 Huntsville is certainly not a one-perspective place.
Nope, although there is a unifying appreciation of education which is refreshing to me.
This is wonderful resource! Thank you and thank you to the blogging bloggers.
Thanks Redeye, you should submit your stuff next time!
I most certainly will! Thank you for the invitation.
Thank you for your astute analysis. I hope you continue to share these uncomfortable truths with the local Business Roundtable types who are running our public schools into the ground as they turn them into corporate revenue streams and tax havens for the 1%ers.
I’d like to re-post at SM, with your permission. Best, Jim
I assume that you’re talking about the “Good” vs. “Poor” post on TFA. If so, yes you may repost that one. This post isn’t really mine, but rather a collection of local writers.
Thanks for reading and for making me aware of your work. I’m sure I’ll be reading your stuff often going forward. I’m still too new at this. 🙂
