They’re Finally Looking Up

From the newsletter

For nearly two years, I’ve been yelling at school board meetings, on twitter, on opinion pages, and in this newsletter. I wanted people to recognize that kids were in crisis mode, parents were in crisis mode, women were in crisis mode. I heard horror stories on the sidewalk as neighbors came out their homes to tell me stories. In interviews, experts predicted dire situations. The education newspapers and journals — great publications that are sadly only read by education geeks like myself — reported the view on the ground. I found a group of like minded thinkers and parents on twitter, and we shared stories.

But I felt like I was shouting at the ocean, drowned out by the waves of people who were yelling about masks and infection rates and vaccinations and didn’t share my low-key constant stress about kids and families. 

And then things changed just this week.
