Here were are in January, and I’m still trying to figure out what
happened to October. The fall sped by as I adjusted to a new city
and a new job. This winter isn’t going much slower.
For many people, myself included, 2011 was a year of intense
highs and lows. In the education world, there is much unfinished
business that carried over from the old year to the new. We still
don’t know what’s going to replace No Child Left Behind. School
districts nationwide are dealing with massive budget shortfalls
that could result in layoffs and cuts to programs and services.
