Carnival of Educators, Summer Break Edition

We are on summer break here... sort of.  As year-round homeschoolers we don't really take the summer off, but we scale back the school work and take off any weeks when we are actually on vacation. 

Where it relates to the Carnival of Educators, I need a break... I really, really do.  So I am discontinuing this carnival for a while planning to re-start it in the fall. 

Until then, please patronize the Carnival of Education.

Help!  I need help to keep this carnival running.

I started it because there was an absence of carnivals at the time.  I keep it going becuase... well I like it.

If you would like to become more involved and perhaps get a boost to your blog traffic, please consider emailing ahermitt@gmail.com and volunteering to host a carnival or too.

Beyond that, and for obvious reasons, this carnival is being posted a bit bare bones.  All the entries are fascinating, as I have deleted all the the spammy stuff, so enjoy!

Carnival of Educators - Spam Free Edition, January 12, 2010

Carnival of educators

Welcome to the January 12, 2010 edition of carnival of educators.

This blog is a few hours late, but it was important to get it right.  It is called the Spam Free Edition, because it is just that... free from spam.  You will find no 100 best college this, or 50 best books resources from websites remotely related to education that sends in dozens of blog posts per week, each from a different submitter.  No sir-ee.  On this carnival, you will hear from all educators all the time.  Heck, I am not even going to distract you with a cute theme... not this week anyway.  I want to hear what educators have to say, and if you are still reading this... so do you, so let's get started with the Spam Free Edition of the Carnival of Educators!

I am categorizing the entries based on what I believe is the occupation/ viewpoint of the writer.
