It's been a bit quiet around here lately. The urge to write about the strange mishmash of things which occupy my mind at different times and to share the results with the world seems to have died. It could return, but I don't know when.
I have just started another blog, about education, the problems that exist, the causes of then and how they might be addressed, possibly solved. It cannot be what I would like it to be, as I don't have the time (and probably not the competence) to do the research and organization that would be necessary. So it will be a series of presentations of my ideas about large and small points related to education and teaching, comments on relevant news items, attempts to attract the interest of people who can change things, occasional ranting, both generalized and specific, and the odd piece about hedgehogs.
If you want to join in, please head over to A New Alcuin (there's a link on the blogroll, too) and agree, argue, correct, set straight, clarify, exemplify, add important detail, be it broadening or widening, or just give encouragement. Because education matters, and I can't change the world on my own.
Sadly, Danny Finkelstein gets it wrong
