subject Re: Action before school's out...

Hi Joan,


Thanks for your work on this.  I don't have a lot of patience for web-based activities, but tried to get to the wiki site and just got to a sort of main list; education wasn't one of the options, so I couldn't find anything about the S3B.  Maybe I needed to stick with it a bit longer.


By tag team, I was referring to achieving the goal of having some reliable but simple stream of communication with teachers, and the idea that whatever we settle on will need regular, routine attention.  A tag team approach would mean to me that, for example, you're in charge this week of making sure that anything big is mentioned and possibly that alerts are sent out (assuming we have access to a bunch of teachers, of course) as needed. Then, to continue the example, maybe next week I'm in\ charge... and the following week Dora would do it.  This is because I think, done well, it would be a lot of work and we should share it.


I haven't thought through logistics -- I don't track multiple issues easily, but it seems to me that this wiki site or blog, or whatever it is, would ideally alert teachers to developments in the parent community; possibly political stuff too.  I'd vote that it would do it in digest form; I belong to one yahoo group list that I was able to direct to send me a digest of the day's emails once a day.  It's really nice -- I was getting "nickled and dimed" to death, so to speak, and now I just hear from that board once a day. I don't know whether a wiki site can work this way; if we did a yahoo board I haven't thought of what the ramifications would be -- people would, presumably, be able to respond to it.
