For some reason, that title just sounded right. A few notes:
- I really don’t miss school right now. So say my feet, which are having a great time not having to work 12 hours straight.
- Everyday Math representatives keep trying to tell parents who have to deal with the math themselves that Everyday Math is the appropriate solution for all their children’s learning. Barry Garelick differs (good read from top to bottom).
- Arthur Goldstein’s article in GothamSchools really struck me as a prime example of what “good” NYC schools look like. Read to see what I mean.
- You really think I wasn’t going to mention the new Beatles Rock Band here? Of course, I am. The trailer is hot.
- A double-link that works well in parallel: J. Dakar writes about just how hard it is to be a blogger of note. Even more interestingly, it was a digital newspaper (Politico.com at that) that broke the story of an “old media” newspaper (Washington Post) that’s sacrificing its journalistic integrity just to stay in power.
- Aurelia Flores of PowerfulLatinas.com has 5 powerful Latinas in their own right talking about the most potentially powerful Latina in the world, Sonia Sotomayor. For more, check it right here.
- As if the subtle racism wasn’t enough to make me cringe, here are some peoples’ reactions to the BET Awards. I don’t watch them, but most of this is highly uncalled for.
Before I go, (and I know I’m going to get a little flack for this), but I really am tired of seeing MJ news.
Apparently, using some sort of racial metrics, White people think there should be less MJ and Black people want more. I’m somewhere in between. I’m all for the man resting in peace personally. I’m glad he’s getting this amount of coverage, but as far as his children, regurgitating his well-documented past, or anything unimportant, I’d rather not hear all of that. I’d like choices as far as the topics I want to hear about, and until I get that choice topically, I’ve decided to just not turn on CNN at all. (No, I don’t watch BET anyways). With the recent deaths of Ed McMahon, Billy Mays, Farrah Fawcett, and Steve McNair, it just goes to show that we all need to tell the people we love just how much we do.
For the final time here, RIP MJ.
Jose, who’s intent on finishing 2 projects this week so he can really take a break …
