Valerie's blog: The Answer Sheet
I’ve been covering education for at least as long as I went to school – from kindergarten through graduate school – and The Answer Sheet
gives me the opportunity to keep learning (and get paid for it).
I research my own pieces that reflect the (often unfortunate) historic changes under way in the American public education system, and I publish the work of teachers, parents, researchers and others, some people with whom I disagree. I take a wide view of what constitutes an education topic: Anything that I happen to be interested in (and I try to mention the Beatles or Bruce Springsteen whenever it makes even the slightest bit of sense to include). I like to laugh, so sometimes, I run pieces that make me do that. Read The Answer Sheet and let me know what you think.
