I Have Merged My Blogs

Dear Friends,

I have merged my Education-themed weblogs. It was a marriage that seemed inevitable. In reality, I was testing the waters with Typepad and Wordpress (self hosted) and Wordpress won. The content on both blogs was similar and was centered around provoking thought about school/teaching practices at this particular point in the evolution of Education.

I will continue this work, though, with a greater intensity and focus as I am no longer "split" by the… Continue
