At the Schoolhouse Gate

I started a new blog last week. At the Schoolhouse Gate, a.k.a. "The Gate," will focus on school law issues. The Gate is intended to be a space where news items, commentary, opinions,

reports, and other education law materials can coalesce together into a

meaningful resource for administrators, professors, and attorneys. The Gate welcomes new voices; contact me if you are interested in being a contributor to the blog.


This brings my blogging projects up to five now (yikes!). Hard to believe considering that I just started blogging last August...

    Douglas Rushkoff – It’s not the technology’s fault

    It's up to us humans to re-humanize our world. An economy that prioritizes growth and profits over humanity has led to digital platforms that "strip the topsoil" of human behavior, whole industries, and the planet, giving less and less back. And only we can save us.
