• Bridging Differences

    In Bridging Differences
    Deborah exchanges views with a different colleague, each for a month or two.  Her current correspondent is Harry Boyte, a Minnesotan (although his roots are southern). He has always been a friend and mentor, even though we come to stuff in different ways and even disagree on and off. He is a professor and an activist, a theorist and a practitioner, with a focus on democracy—beginning a long time ago when he worked with Martin Luther King. He has written or edited ten books on the topic and founded a Center on
    democracy which is now at St Augsberg College, but formerly at the University of Minnesota.

See you in D.C.?

Just two weeks, plus a day, until we convene in Washington D.C. It’s a time to get together and plan, thrash out our hopes for American schools, meet each other face-to-face, and make a statement.

Of course, I’d rather it was on the North or South Pole. D.C. in August??? Who planned this thing? Oh dear, I confess. I’m on the executive committee.

So–instead of marching in the mid-day heat, this year we’re meeting indoors. Probably air-conditioning–no, for certain. Go to the website for S.O.S. (or look to your upper left on my web page–right here for details.)
