New Carnival for your enlightenment

While I have no background in teaching (save a brief stint as a TA as an undergrad), I'm thrilled that one of my posts has been included in the 18th Carnival of Education. It's hosted by Education Wonk -- a libertarian-oriented education blog (I didn't even know there was such a thing!), and the Carnival is described as consisting of

a variety of interesting and informative posts from around the EduSphere that have been submitted by various authors and readers.
Mine was about the educational value of blood drinking, but they're all highly interesting. Like Interested Particpant's post about a high school graduate who's suing because of his inability to get a job. (They let him graduate without being able to read. Hmm... Maybe they ought to allow such lawsuits..... Why do home-schooled children seem to be better spellers, anyway? So are immigrants from India, btw.)

Or how about teaching people how to "act their race"?

All this and lots more. I'm glad I found out about this carnival, and my thanks to Mike Pechar at Interested-Participant (a wonderful blog) for letting me know about it.

It is easier to destroy than to build. They destroy. We build.
