But I really can't find the inspiration - so I went digging, and poking and prodding all around my tired, cobweb of a brain for inspiration. After reading Bonnie's post this evening I got it. Not so much because of what she said but more because of what she didn't say.
I am pondering two things I heard this week that have left me just puzzled. The first was from the Fischbowl , an absolute favorite blog of mine and perhaps the first one I ever read...Karl asked
"What is the purpose of School"
He did not ask because he is a jerk, a sceptic or a cynic - in fact he is perhaps the neatest, cutting edge teacher I have ever seen...on the contrary he asked to see what peoples answers would be and more.
So tonight I ponder: What is the purpose of school?
ALSO - Douglas County is considering a 4 day school week as part of serious budget cuts for next year...among many other drastic things because the district is out of money, the tax payers voted down a tax to increase funding and they are desperate. Now, keep in mind we are talking about a county that has a school on just about every stinking corner...
So I ponder tonight: 4 Day school week? Could it work?
I would love to hear your thoughts...I will share mine in a follow up post and compile our answers hopefully in some sort of highly inspired fun way later in the week!
