Gone Fishin’ (Sorta)

I posted content on Twitter today but not here. Including a smart Julie Squire discussion on charter schools and rural education. There is also a picture of me with a ginormous fish over there.

Katzman & Cohen Make You Think, Freeland Fisher Does, Too, And The Satanists Make You…Oppose Corporal Punishment…Low-Income & Higher Ed, Second That Emotion….More!

Friday Fish – More Kosars!

It’s unclear to me how Kevin Kosar stays either employed or married given how much time he spends fishing with his daughter. But she is one lucky girl. If you are looking for hundreds of pictures of education people fishing – often with their families – then you have come to the right place.

Friday Fish Porn – Alaska…
