Day 74: Walk On
Last day of school until the new year.
Day 73: Get Inside!
Happy to run into school today to escape the drizzle, and parties in the afternoon.
Day 72: Goofball
Zak poses with a picture of himself from a recent fire station field trip. A little bit of Friday donut icing stuck to his face.
The new business model will be the intersection of the three following things:
As a follow-on to my previous post about non-profit measures.
Day 71: Rain?
Lots of laughs this morning getting everyone to school in the rain.
“The Higher Education Bubble” from Hack Education
It???s important to remember here, of course, that just 70% of U.S. students even graduate from high school. So before we worry too much about ???excess education,??? we should start there. Indeed, despite all the talk of overselling the college dream and murmurs of a higher education bubble, just 29% of Americans have four-year degrees. (The rates are far lower for Blacks and Hispanics: 17% and 13% respectively.) And despite questions about whether or not a college degree is ???worth it,??? statistics still show that those with college degrees earn more. As the country suffers this latest economic recession, it???s worth pointing out too that those with college degrees have lower unemployment rates than those without.
I want to believe that change is possible. Which is in part why I’m going to encourage my kids to become iron workers.
Day 70: Contemplate
Day 69: No Man An Island
We drive to school today so Zoe could bring her carefully crafted desert island model (hooray Play-Doh) safely to school.
Day 68: Residue
If you look really closely you should be able to make out traces of donut on the boy’s face.
