  1. Is it silly that I am completely squee-ing about my tweet being included in your reader?

  2. Exciting times here in Seattle, US — many teachers are boycotting a standardized test, and there’s lots of student and parent support. Most of the attention is focused on Garfield High, where ALL the teachers are boycotting. The superintendent ordered the administration to give the test yesterday, and students and parents are not cooperating. I wrote three posts about the botcotts – here’s the first, which gives some context.
