Dear Sally and John, please feel free to share with others.

I agree Eric. It is time to do something in education. I am working on it through a doctoral process and dissertation which I hope leads to making a difference somehow. The challenge is it takes a group, even a small group, to make a difference per Margaret Mead.
Eric_Determined / Eric Silverstein's comment, October 7, 2013 12:10 AM
Hi Ivon, we'll look forward to learn more about your dissertation. It starts with one person, then you are correct, you build the community from there. Best wishes!

Indeed, learning how to do nothing might be the most vital skill for thriving in our frenetic, overwhelmed, always-connected culture. Here are five key reasons why:
