Teacher in a Strange Land

Welcome to my world. Literally. This is the view from my deck.

I am a retired music teacher from Michigan, who lives and breathes education policy and practice. I firmly believe that–for all its flaws–public education is America’s best idea. A fully public, fully funded education (no turning away the ‘hard to educate’ who may be no such thing). A public education for everyone, no matter what they bring to the table. It’s fundamental.
