I'd had half of a boiled egg and a slice of Ezekiel bread at 9 am. I teach at 1 pm. I was sick and vomiting air by 4 pm. Joy.

these student work numbers are mind-blowingly high. If true, they'd explain all of the "limited learning" crisis that has been blamed on bad teaching and curricula.

I realized that many of my students are artists and performers. I am drawing on my friend to discuss how tech and the labor of art intersect. Plus a very special fireside chat with a grammy nominated rapper, singer producer...

Me: how much does it costs to borrow a thousand books a year from the library? Small boy: $500? Smaller girl: $1,000! Me: It’s free! Six hundred kids in the hall gasp, then cheer.

Yup. Last semester I had a couple of students not turn in work and say they would take "whatever grade I gave them." I was like, well, what other grade *could* I give you. It was a bad scene.

One of the local HBCUs here--can't recall which--almost lost accreditation over a similar policy before changing it.
