The US media can no longer pretend like there is one side to the story, because people can find out for themselves and they will then call them out on social media for obvious bias. After a correspondent who was doing remarkable stories from Gaza was recently pulled out, temporarily, the firestorm on social media meant the network had to send him back. There has been a definite shift.

For example, this is among the things we experienced while participating to XY Lab. While the importance of storytelling was very clear (the need to tell the story of what happened in the laboratory), the notion of the fundamental importance of how to share the knowledge that was generated from the lab was not clear at all, at direct (what knowledge was produced in the various projects which took place in the lab?) and meta(what knowledge was generated in creating the lab?) levels.

I was walking in the park, admiring the old trees. Some of them were crooked. Some of them had scars, and lots of lots of wrinkles.

our primary driving tone must be above the possibility of having our central mission undermined.

we must use the incredible platform that Diane Ravitch has built for teachers, professors, and scholars in order to build a movement of many faces, many voices, and many experts. The mainstream media have reduced the resistance to Ravitch in much the same way that the media have reduced climate change to Bill Nye
