This is a quick round-up of what happened on the CASTLE blogs last week...

LeaderTalk

James Yap discussed how a highly-acclaimed deaf education program actually treats deafness as a pathology.

Reggie Engebritson celebrated Graduation Day with the seven graduates of her alternative school.

Edjurist

Justin Bathon highlighted his new article on free legal research resources and discussed the intersections of school district student residency requirements and child support payments.

Justin also concluded his series on search, seizure, and school resource officers and asked why there are no education law professors on the Law Profs Blog Network.

Dangerously Irrelevant

I kicked off the second annual CASTLE Summer (Online) Book Club and asked for help identifying blogs and web sites where parents were writing about their local school districts. I also stirred up some controversy by calling two faculty members 'stupid.'

I tried to wrap my head around some American workforce data and discussed two key questions for organizations with an online presence:

  1. Why should I come at all?
  2. Why should I come back?

I highlighted the upcoming Constructing Modern Knowledge conference, created a Kindle version of this blog, and reviewed the award-winning book, The Travels of a T-Shirt in the Global Economy.

We also wrapped Episode 6 of the 4 Guys Talking podcast, which was one of the best we've had to date.

Happy reading (and listening)!
