The war on men starts with the war on boys

Main revelation (in linked article) is that Sight-words (also known as Whole Language, etc.) is more destructive of boys than of girls. Could you guess why?



Boys by large are confident and cocky. They can climb up on a roof and then jump off the roof. But what if you put something in front of them, an obstacle, that keeps them from ever climbing up on the roof. They will be frustrated and…

Stop Bullying: Schools Can Hold Hope

The use of Twitter to share news and to congratulate individuals or teams, or to remind of meetings or events has become a part of many educational leaders' work of the day. Many, if not most students and parents are 'on' Twitter. It has become a favored way to communicate quickly and briefly. At first a vehicle for young people to speak to each other in brief terms, it has been swept up by adults and businesses. Its use was welcomed and used for good. The use of social media helped school…

SEO Explained

SEO is search engine optimisation. Using this technique, a website's ranking in search engines (such as Google) can be improved.

I noticed there are very few businesses aware of SEO. So, I thought being an SEO professional, I should write an article making users aware of SEO.

Projecting Your Gravitas: A Key to Winning the Job by Larry Aronstein

Projecting Your Gravitas: A Key to Winning the Job

In interview situations, I’ve coached many school leaders and teachers about the importance of presenting oneself in a confident manner. Many refer to this as gravitas. Someone with gravitas projects self-confidence, influence, credibility, and commands respect. When you speak, others listen. Do not confuse gravitas with arrogance.…

Everyone should know the Berys Dixon story....Schoolteacher does what she’s told until one day she realizes she’s been lying to her parents. The method she was teaching does not work. She does her own research, finds her own answers, and for the first time helps most of her children to read.
