Lucy Baley, reporter for NY Metro Parents, just posted a lovely interview with me. My fav question: You call yourself an “edu-tainer”—why? Do you think more teachers need to take on that role? Emphatically not. If everyone taught like me it would be a complete disaster. Folks, we need to honor diversity in our teachers […]

I love TV. Allow me to clarify. I don’t watch TV. I watch my iPad. However, I like being on TV. I used to host my own weekly show on KUSD-TV…but that’s another story. Last week, I was lucky to be invited to Washington DC for two TV interviews. One was for To The Contrary, […]

She asked some very provocative questions, including the toughest one yet, “Why do some of our public schools get to screen for top students and have so many more resources than others?” The full show is here.
