How have I missed this guy for so long?
Seems like he and I have been talking the same way, and I know I have seen his book, but up until now I have not really focused in on what he has to say. That is all over with, starting with his response to that ludicrous essay by Leon Wieseltier and continuing with this lovely blog about new ideas in education (most of which are already in practice at HoneyFern).
Do yourself a huge favor and check him out. I am going to be going through his work more closely in the next few days.
