The purpose of this blog – my MISSION — is to raise questions and stimulate conversations about America’s K-12 public education system and the important role it plays, or should K-12 play, in helping to preserve, protect and defend the longest running experiment in democracy the world has ever known. American democracy is in serious jeopardy – having been undermined and threatened on so many fronts. Ample evidence from recent history has made it abundantly clear that American democracy is fragile and can be shaken to its foundation. In concert with other institutions of American society, the K-12 system is well positioned – and has both the challenge and the opportunity — to come to the rescue, to increase the chances that American democracy is preserved, protected and defended for the sake of our children and grandchildren and generations yet unborn.
