About the Blog

I will post a new entry every few weeks. Some will be new writing and some will be past work that has relevance today. The writing will deal in some way with the themes that have been part of my teaching and writing life for decades:

•teaching and learning;
•educational opportunity;
•the importance of public education in a democracy;
•definitions of intelligence and the many manifestations of intelligence in school, work, and everyday life; and
•the creation of a robust and humane philosophy of education.

If I had to sum up the philosophical thread that runs through my work, it would be this: A deep belief in the ability of the common person, a commitment to educational, occupational, and cultural opportunity to develop that ability, and an affirmation of public institutions and the public sphere as vehicles for nurturing and expressing that ability.

My hope is that this blog will foster an online community that brings people together to continue the discussion.

Problems With Subscribing to This Blog

Dear Readers,
It seems that some readers have had trouble in the past subscribing to this blog, but that is now fixed. If you have had trouble, could you please re-subscribe.


  1. Mike,

    I can subscribe just fine, but your entries come abbreviated on Bloglines, which means that you haven't enabled the full feed. I would really appreciate it if you could do this, as I read all my ed-related blogs through a feed reader.

    Here's the "how to" - scroll to "sitefeed" and go from there.

    Thanks! I am a huge fan of your work and I look forward to following your blog.
