Thanks Chris M. for the 'key' to translating the Blind Eugenie ramblings.
I think your point of education being (sometimes) an experiment is an
important one. We all try a lesson plan (or more) in our careers that just
do not fly, and we as educators learn from it. However, when a school is
willing to experiment, on a long term basis across the grade levels, one
has to ask -- at whose expense? I had a principal once say, 'I wouldn't
have a dictionary in my classroom;kids spend too much time looking through
it.' Other listeners out there have also commented on the grammar issue . .
. maybe Blind Eugenie will take note.
