Change I CAN Believe In

As Sherman Dorn points out:

Thelma Melendez de Santa Ana, the newly-announced assistant secretary of education nominee.... has maintained a blog while running the Pomona school district.

Not only does she have a blog, she's an amazingly warm and wonderful blogger. Just go there, scroll to the bottom and read your way up. You'll probably shed a few tears on the way, perhaps some from relief that such a caring teacher will be looking out for public primary and secondary schools in the US. I don't actually know what the Assistant Secretary of Education for Elementary and Secondary Education does or how much power she has, but I feel like the atmosphere has gotten tangibly less oppressive today.

Technical note: if you're wondering how you end up with such an ugly and ill-designed (no permalinks, etc.) blog -- use SchoolCenter.
