178th Carnival of Education

The 178th Carnival of Education is out hosted over at (aspiring) Educator’s Blog.

Some of my favorite posts included Bill Ferriter over at the Tempered Radical on “Kids I’ve Failed…” Something I know all of us have wrestled with.

Now, despite the fact that young whippersnapper Scott Walker used the politically incorrect--and rather offensive--terminology “middle aged woman” in his post…sigh…OK, OK, OK offensive to us old fuddyduddies (gotta love that word)…Well, despite the fact that he used it not once, but twice… any post called, “The Tyranny of Technology” is definitely worth the read.

And then, of course, there was Darren’s post about a teacher who was suspended for allowing her students to read a particular book. Read about it over at the Right on the Left Coast.

And speaking of books, education blogging goddess Joanne Jacobs had a post that really saddened me about some books found in a dumpster.

There, of course, is lots more worth reading at the Carnival. So check it out so you know what’s buzzing around the EduSphere.

My post, thankfully was included (’cause you know I’ve got an ego the size of a rather large barn)…but you don’t have to go there to read it here. It’s got a catchy title and everything… “Audit Reports, Teacher In-Service & How Bozo Ended Up in Dante’s Circle of Hell.” Check it out.
