Sumichrast: End "Derision" Aimed at Education!

January 30, 2013

Robert Sumichrast -- the short-termer, and outgoing current Dean of the UGA Business School -- got a warm reception at a recent address when he talked about the current and future state of GA's economy! In one high-lighted remark, he advised an end to the "derision" aimed at public education in GA!

I was wondering two things:

1. Has criticism of education in GA -- K12, and higher education -- actually caused it to be less effective and productive?

2. If native and personal gripes and complaints aimed at education actually harms the process -- and thereby harms the education of the children and adults involved -- then HOW FAR should public and private authorities GO, to root-out and end the, uh, "derision?"!

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
