Must Amuse Me (or make me think)

Your awesome Tagline

Posting this just a few more times before I delete this. Warrennotg hasn’t seen it yet.

As you may or may not have noticed, I have another tumblr that I post on regularly. At first this was supposed to be my personal blog, and the other was supposed to be only things related to education and teaching. But, now I’m just my whole self on the other tumblr. So if you’ve missed me, and you’d like to follow my posts, you can find me as PositivelyPersistentTeach also known as PPT. Thanks to Rich Tong, I was blessed with the opportunity to create a community on #education tag along with World-Shaker and Girlwithalessonplan. I’ve come to love that community so much. But, in my dedication to that Tumblr, this one fell to the wayside. I hope you’ll consider following me as I will reblog this post a few times before deleting it entirely. I’m slowly following everyone I follow on her on my other Tumblr.

WARRENNOTG, I miss you loads. I need your dancing in my life.

That is all.

If you know me as PPT and follow me on this Tumblr and didn’t make the connection — SURPRISE!

School’s Out Forever: Parents Who Don’t Believe in Education

Radically unschooled children are allowed to live each day in freedom, being exactly who and what they are at that moment. They have no bedtime, no mandatory foods, no off-limit words. If your child is tender-headed and shrieks like a parrot when her hair is brushed, the Radical would suggest you not brush her hair. If she prefers to let it mass into a giant dreadlock that collects food and gnats, well, it’s really not your problem, is it? After all, it’s not your hair; it’s hers. The basic operating principle is that you should not treat a child any differently than you would treat another adult, which is to say without guilt, coercion or threats.

I like this quote from the comments section:

The biggest issue with unschooling is that it is classist. This educational option only exists for families with means to support a child’s wandering through early life. Were public schools to be abandoned tomorrow, working-class children would be working to help support their families, rather than “unschooling.”  While this could be an interesting concept, unschooling is hardly for everyone.

Brooklyn Bike Patrol on a roll after attacks on women: A volunteer escort home from the subway along dark streets is a phone call away — no charge, no tips. Business is brisk.

On Halloween, Ruiz escorted two women — one dressed as a box of cookies, the other as a milk carton — who felt vulnerable because their costumes limited their arm movements. Many of his regulars, who are listed in his phone by their first names and their usual subway stations, are waitresses who work late and who don’t want to spend $20 or so for a cab ride home.

Nice job, Brooklyn.
