When I am teaching writing, I sometimes advise my students to just start. A blank white paper can morph into a black hole sucking all energy from you if you don’t grab the moment and start. (Although on other days I push the pre-writing/thinking talk — so much for consistency). I’m not sure if the metaphor works for a blog, but I know that I’ve been thinking and wanting to do this for a long time — like 9 years — since Paulo Freire Freedom School started — and if I don’t start now, when will it ever take off? So without a second more delay I’m going to press publish and this will mark what I hope to be a long and fruitful discussion about the schools we all want. . . . PUBLISH . . . .
