A Sunday Link-a-Sortment

December 2, 2007 pm31 11:30 pm

Hal found a study that relates to the value of homework. Dan may have something to say.

Belated link to Syntactic Gymnastics‘ surprise that her school got a “B.” If you don’t know someone who works in one of these NYC mini-schools-of-fear… you really ought to read the whole blog. She doesn’t write a lot, but what’s there is worth it.

When Leo Casey found that Disney dumped him from their web site, he was right. He thought it was because of the Stossel letter. Nasty Anti-teacher blogger found that Disney dumped a few dozen teachers, and accused Leo of, essentially, being foolish. So maybe it wasn’t the letter. Maybe it was. But Disney acted against a few dozen teachers, including Leo, and whatever the reason, there was a reason. I’ve disagreed with Leo in the past, but in a conflict between the Mouse and a teacher, the teacher’s side is always the right one.

Got this from Robert at Casting out Nines. Click it. Or do something else first.

    It was human error in the inputting of the name, a mistake, stop the 9/11 type theories

    Inputting a name? Human error?

    They sorted an already existing list.

    At least you could try to make sense.

    Do you actually understand that the list was recompiled. It is not sorting a list as in excel or word. It is typed by hand. Many names were left off the list. Several of those names where not involved in any letter writing campaign. There is a reason, human error in inputting the names. What does not make sense?

    It sounds an awful lot like you are making things up. Do you have something to back up your ‘claim’?

    So these people plus 28 more are missing from the updated page but not on the cached paged, Explanation? Oh yeah, Karen Butterfield told a friends friend Walt Disney was in the KKK, that is why she was removed. “What does whatever the reason, there was a reason” mean? The reason is because it was a mistake, like these other names. Case closed. Keep writing though.

    Now your yanking my chain, I cut and pasted and it was already corrected, in order. Do you really believe it was intentional?

    Absolutely. I recognize another progressive, New York name on the list. It might not have been the Stossel letter, but it was no mistake.

    On our first day back at school, I’m going to print out that procrastination chart. It is a valuable resource for me.
