Happy Holidays!

Charlie and I will naturally be on a bit of a hiatus through the end of the year. 

My computer desktop is flooded with many ed articles and I may throw up a couple of "ed reading" posts. 

Otherwise, consider the Interim Plan for capacity management with your friends and be prepared to state your case in early January. 

Best wishes for a happy and safe holiday!

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to you! I may post a little light reading to during the break. Just my little gift to the unelected shadow school board...

Millionaire Ben Slivka poured over $100K into the YES on I 1240 campaign and fought for the passage of I 1240.

Reuven Carlyle asked (on his facebook page) if we would support taxes to fund education across the state..here is what Ben Slivka had to say:


"Ben Slivka No more taxes. We have a spending problem, not a revenue problem. Free up public schools so they have flexibility."

They say that Eastern Washington does not want to pay taxes, but geesh, Slivka doesn't live that far east!

@Slivka the Scrooge,
This is not news. Slivka lives in a bubble of Ayn Rand-inspired free-market fantasy. I think his theories are totally inline with people who live in the rarefied air of Medina, Clyde Hill and Hunt's Point. I am pretty sure that efforts to prevent Libertarians, Republicans and wealthy ed-reform Democrats from buying houses in from buying residences in that area would not only be illegal, but highly impractical.

Thanks, Mary. I was unaware of this little fact. Looks like we have a few people in the Medina area with a disproportionate amount of influence.

Happy Holidays
