Some Updates and Notes Going into Q1 2016


I haven't been posting here as regularly as I usually do or like to, and there are a couple of reasons for that.

  1. I'm working on a lot more on-the-ground stuff for Praxis that requires my daily attention in a different way than my work in 2015 did. (And if you are in Western Pennsylvania, hit me up!)
  2. I've been writing a number of longer-form posts that take more research and time to figure out. Some of these appear at LinkedIn and Medium, others go here or will appear in the below publication.
  3. I'm compiling a book! Due out this Spring, the book will be a compilation of my writing on education, school, how to build your life beyond school, and a number of original pieces that look at what the future of education will be, what the process of leaving school (both via graduation and dropping out) requires to be done healthily, and a few others.

These aren't to be used as excuses -- I hope to get back to writing once a day as I had for a while -- but just explanations.

I'll be posting here or at the Praxis blog at least twice a week.

As always, if you're interested in getting regular communication directly from me, sign up for the email community above.
