"about kitchen table math"

What text should we have under "about kitchen table math"?

We need "parents & teachers" for sure, though I believe we've got some non-parent members & a policy type or two....

I want to get writing & reading some place on the front, since we now have lots of folks posting on those subjects.

And we definitely need something about policy & politics. I didn't particularly want to use the word "reform" since I no longer believe that public schools can be reformed in the aggregate. (Some public schools will improve dramatically; some public schools are good now. But can the system be fixed? I've come to believe the answer is 'no.')

Thanks!

Maybe "By Helicopter Parents, For Helicopter Parents" ??? :-) :-)

Or "Proudly Bitching about Math Education since XXXX" :-) :-)

Yes, I'm in a snarky mood tonight!

How about this?

"The best students have helicopter parents."

Performancing has a good, short piece on the About page:

You may want to factor in some words that you see frequently even if they're not exactly what you'd use.

OK, I'm on track for WORDS people use.

I WAS trying to follow directions concerning "RSS" feeds and the like, but am stumped at the moment since I don't have to know what my "RSS feed" is and don't know how to find out.

Knowing what your RSS feed is is probably one of those 21st century skills I missed out on back when schools taught reading, writing, and arithmetic.

Your RSS feed is how I've been reading KTM for however many years now. ;)

I think I posted about it on KTM1 way back when.
