About Our Blog
Check out my blog, "The Education Doctor"! (The title of the blog, by the way, comes from my old-fashioned approach to doing business . . . I do housecalls.)
I love talking about all things education and providing information to families. This blog was inspired by many education discussions over the years.
The purpose of my blog is to keep readers informed about current issues in education. I will also share comments and translations on research readings. It's always been a pet peeve of mine that education research journals are so inaccessible.
Please feel free to post a comment or send a question by email. I would love to hear from you!
