A Shrewdness of Apes

An Okie teacher banished to the Midwest. "Education is not the filling a bucket but the lighting of a fire."-- William Butler Yeats

Thanks to everyone who voted for A Shrewdness of Apes in the Weblog Awards for 2006. We came in a very respectable fourth-- given that we are just a poor, humble edublog with no particular axe to grind except to call for America-- parents, politicians, educators, and students-- to support the goal of making sure every child and teen in America has access to great public schools.

That simple goal, and the occasional chuckle, screed, or cheap diversion. This is my schtick.

I am humbled by your support.

Thanks to you, Ms Cornelius. So that you know, you are not only read by Americans. You have at least one European reader living in Asia.

Those bastards. What do they know? I voted for you many times, but they voted for themselves more times.

Hey, I'm not feeling bad about it at all! I was a little freaked about the actual "education-ness" of some of the competition, like Mr. McNamar pointed out at his place, but still.

I am just a wee, insignificant cog grinding my grist in the great Edusphere, so it's all good

But thanks so much for your votes! It was fun!
