This blogging thing turns back in on itself:

  • Re: course surveys, per Jackie and Vivek’s suggestions, I elided the “neutral” option and gave it here at mid-year versus an exclusive end-of-year administration when the mood is artificially buoyant.
  • Re: my school’s sick new tardy policy, the numbers are in: 43% decline in tardies over the same interval last year. I dig this thing. It takes the emotion out of discipline. Nothing gets heated. “Hey, cool, you’re here. Just leave your passport at the door.” ¶ This is a good start. Now that we’ve got kids in class it’s time to give ’em reason enough to stay there.
