I'm always telling editors that if they want some quick copy, the easiest way is to send me a bunch of questions, I'll send back the answers, and the editors can edit any way they want. They control the whole thing. I think this is an irresistible offer. In fact, only a few people have taken me up on it. Recently Brad Nelson at Stubborn Things did.

I didn't second-guess his questions. He didn't second-guess my answers. So the article happened very quickly and is a good read.

There were questions such as What's Common Core, Should the Department of Education be abolished, Why are parents so uninvolved with their children's education, What prompted me to get into writing about education reform, and Are there sinister forces out there whose real purpose is quite other than giving children a good academic education?

--------------------------

One of my main theme these days is that we're not going to save the public schools unless we raise the level of the public debate. I'll do anything I can to help do that. So if you have a site or publication, and you want an interview quickly, let's go.
