Education Carnival 93: Feelings, nothing more than feelings...

NYC Educator puts forth a great edition of the Carnival of Education over at his place. I particularly like the cartoon of Rep. Preston Brooks beatin' the stuffing out of Sen. Charles Sumner back in 1856 in a mini-run-up to the Civil War. How sad that the more things change in politics, the more they stay the same.

Go check out the carnival-- all sorts of cool stuff there-- and no creepy tattooed thugs on the midway. You might even take home a prize! I liked the story from Ms. C-- no relation-- who was assaulted by both the system and one of her students. It's a multi-parter, so keep reading to get the whole sordid deed.

Go take a lookee!
