Professional Development Today

Culturally Responsive Schools.  I wrote about this PD in this post.

Only 3 things I'm going to say about it in addition to the link above:

1.  It was only 7 minutes into the opening talks before there was a jab at Republicans.  Ha ha--it's ok to joke about minorities, but only if they're not on the approved list of minorities.

2.  The keynote speaker said we need to be less "individualist" and more "collectivist" in our schools.  I kid you not.

3.  I went because I got paid to go.
