TRUMP'S BUDGET IS MY FAVORITE THING THAT WON'T HAPPEN When the President releases a budget it doesn't really mean anything other than this is what he wants to have happen. Trump's budget is exactly that. The New York Times did a summary here.

NO, TEACHERS DON'T NEED TO WAGE A WAR ON SITTING This is just so dumb. So, so dumb. We've done away with recess and daily PE so now teachers are going to have students walk around during class as part of the "war on sitting". This is just so, so dumb.
I'M GUILTY OF DOING THIS AND CAN'T PROMISE IT WON'T HAPPEN AGAIN I know you're not supposed to wash a hot pan in cold water, but I do it sometimes. Here's an article that explains why this is bad.

Sorry the blog is so short, I have been running late since 6am today.
