Seriously, I did get his permission before sending the blog post off to education writer Valerie Straus at The Answer Sheet, billed as a “school survival guide for parents and everyone else.”
“How could I argue?” he laughed.
In addition to being very smart, my darling husband of 11 years is very funny!
It was all for a good reason – I was trying to point out that my husband and I are far from slackers in the education department, but we are apparently slacker parents when it comes to how some families handle the rigors of assessment testing in the second grade. (Or so we’re told).
Anyway, you can check out the post here. It’s called, “Who’s Afraid of the TerraNova 2 Test?”
Would love to get your thoughts!
And yes, for someone who cut her teeth at local newspapers, studied journalistic ethics under Nat Hentoff, and regretfully left the newspaper industry, this little post has me more than tickled pink!
