Thinking of Mad Floridian
Advertisements [?]
My post about Arne Duncan reminded me of Mad Floridian, who stopped posting after loss of her husband.

I don't know if she looks in on us now and again.

However, I just wanted her to know that she is in my thoughts and I will always wish her well and mentally send her props whenever I think of public education.

I am forced to think of education often these days, thanks to incessant calls that I have been receiving from campaigns of the baker's dozen of candidates in the Boston mayoral race.

AFAIK, only two of the large field of candidates favor public education over charter schools--and, of course, they are not the ones with the big campaign bucks. One of them will get my vote, though, thanks to Mad Floridian.

One of them, a community organizer, had my vote until I got to the part of his bio that said that he owns a charter school.

So, Mad Floridian, please know that you did make a difference with me and I am sure with others.

I hope you return some day. I miss your posts!
