SUMMER SCHOOL

June 22, 2006 1 min read

It’s summertime, and that means the teachers—especially the younger ones—are back in school. Graduate school, that is. And Epiphany In Baltimore recommends it highly:

I spent today marching along the brick paths of Towson University, a backpack slung over my shoulder and a college freshmen look of confusion on my face. How I loved it. College campuses have this energy to them that I miss in my everyday life; it's so cool to be part of whole little community all focused on education.

And it’s nice to get away from the institutional demands and paperwork of your average public school and really be immersed in learning about learning. Epiph continues:

Today, I completed a research evaluation on a study that shown absolutely no correlation between school uniforms and academic achievement, attendance, substance use, or behavior. I wished I would have known about that study this past year, when our school was considering the implementation of school uniforms.

But now he knows. And that, of course, is half the battle.
