Sticking to My Guns | Teacher in a strange land
Sticking to My Guns God, I hate that phrase— stick to your guns! — because it represents everything that triggered the Capitol breach on Wednesday: Intransigence. The false glory of never yielding, even when your case is weak or based on falsehoods. Violence as means of accruing power. In the past two days, as conversations sprang up and grew heated on social media, our new town square, a friend

Education Matters: Let's talk about social distancing in DCPS
Let's talk about social distancing in DCPS Social distancing is part of the whole trinity of protecting oneself and others from the coronavirus. It's also a lie that it is happening in our schools.

Juking the stats DCPS graduation style Superintendent Greene sent out an email blast touting the district's improvement in graduation, a stat that has steadily gone up for a decade.
