It’s August: time for crickets, goldenrod, and golden school buses. Schools are starting all over the country: last week, next week, two weeks from now. As I prepare for my new year, I have some old questions. I wonder: How did schools get to be the way they are? In what ways do they serve their students, and in what ways do they need to change? How do teachers need to change? What do we need to remember? To learn?

Classrooms inculcate new citizens
No wonder the feet fidget freedom
