Susan Ohanian Smashes the Common Core -- and more

Labor Day is the perfect day to send your support to the Chicago Teachers Union. I just sent mine. I hope you send yours.

We have a new cartoon. The title is 'LearnZillion's Gift of Free Common Core Lessons.' but it applies to most things of Common Core ilk.

We also have a new Eggplant. See below.

I hope you will heed the plea below to contribute to Interversity. Eric at Interversity designed this site and when there's a glitch I can cry for help and get it immediately. Please help Interversity keep this site operating.

I went to dinner at a Japanese restaurant and a mother and daughter were doing what they do every year: celebrating the first day of school. So of course, once I overheard this, I had to go over and offer my good wishes to complete strangers. The daughter is a 7th grader and we people associated with 7th grade have to stick together.
