“Wherever you go to connect to God, that’s what the Black Hills are to the Lakota.” The painful history of Mount Rushmore—its sculptor, its subjects and the land it sits on—must be remembered as it becomes a site of protest and celebration this weekend.

So... 1 out of every 2,532 Americans has died of Coronavirus in a four month span. That's with no school happening, no sports, no travel, etc... and we got bored. And July 1 saw the most new cases in a day yet at over 50,000. Stay home. Be safe. Wear a mask if you must go out.

Misinformation is designed to provoke an emotional response, sparking anger or outrage. Users impulsively pass it on without checking its validity. Research tells us that pausing briefly allows that rush to subside and for reason to take over.

So much this- kindness does not solve every problem but instead allows us to ignore problems we don’t want to deal with - just like tone policing

Hey Tom. I know that was 100-percent positive from you and I agree that tolerance is a great starting point. My comment was not meant as an indictment, but just to promote reflection...which I think was your original point.

I have been struggling with this slide. All of us in schools have learning to do, not just “the kids.” I also don’t love the word tolerance. In some cases, tolerance is not the best option. Tolerance of outdated systems and policies is not what we should reinforce.

In public schools, any racial discrimination—including unfair discipline or actions that impair students’ education—is not only unjust and wrong; it violates a hard-won law. Here are ways to cite and fight for Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

As a young administrator, I could always count on Phil Flaherty to be there to answer questions and offer advice. My condolences to his family.

"Of course I am racist." I have to get comfortable saying this. This video is a must watch if you are serious about being . "It's not enough to just be awake."
