Good news: I'm finally over on the new Blogger. Expect categorization, improved referencing of past entries, and a whole new attitude. Guaranteed 24% more spunk.
Bad news: the WASL, as expected, is cutting into electives. Right as we're supposed to be experiencing a renaissance in vocational education--and no, that doesn't mean Shakespeare in shop class, although that might be a good thing--a villain of Shakespearean proportions, the WASL, crashes onto the scene. It's not stealing funding, but instead filling schedules, so the problem might be surmountable if schools get creative with their time allotments.
