This Local Schools Network is so on it for exposing and discussing the specific political/media events which enrage us. I love this!

As it's Easter, and because I like to think holidays are a time for thoughtful reflection, I'd like to zoom out as far as possible to see the entire picture of our aspirations.

Happy Easter Holidays!
