I’ve Been Away and Didn’t Tell You

Posted on | September 2, 2014 | Comments Off on I’ve Been Away and Didn’t Tell You

I’m sorry.  I’ve been away for a while and didn’t tell you.  Writing the ‘On California’ blog at EdWeek.org has become such a full time job—my wife Leanne thinks it is an obsession—that I’ve had little leftover time for Mindworkers.

Also, given that I have another outlet for educational policy writing, I need to rethink what to do with this space, and that’s a work in process.

Just to reflect, in many ways ‘On California’ is the project I was built to undertake.  It’s the newspaper column I never had.  It’s a way to combine my early training and instincts for writing with four decades of social science.

In another way, though, it is tough work for an old guy, and there are days that I think that something more contemplative would be better for my soul.

I promise I will come back soon.  As soon as I figure out what to say.
