[NEW] BACK INTO THE NET-NEUTRALITY BREACH…!

May 8th, 2017

[Update @ 1928—Oh, this is rich: The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) claimed on Monday that its online comments system was attacked hours after comedian John Oliver called on viewers of his HBO series Last Week Tonight to file comments to urge the agency to protect open internet rules. The clowns at the FCC wouldn’t know […]

February 20th, 2017

WHY IS ADAMS THE ONLY ONE MAKING SENSE…?

October 31st, 2016

So, I had several long conversations over the weekend trying to make sense of the latest news out of FBI Director Steve Comey.

Of course, Ohio—with White Hat Management at the fore—comes in for the lion’s share of Oliver’s piece. As for the question of Cyber Charters, I can say from 10+ years of working with online classes in multiple districts that unless the student is working in a classroom with a knowledgeable educator (or receiving at-home instruction […]
