I spent the 2014-15 academic year traveling around California to visit teachers and public schools doing great work every day! We need to hear the positive stories about public education in our state, so I was blogging about the journey as I went along, and am currently writing a book about the experience. The Kickstarter campaign for this project took place last year, but you can still support my work by using the PayPal “Donate” button below. Unless you specify otherwise during the checkout process, I’ll treat your donation similarly to a Kickstarter pledge, and offer the following rewards based on your contribution amount. See below for projected delivery dates.
You may direct additional questions to me via email. If you do choose to donate, I highly recommend that you email me to confirm the donation and the details that will enable me to send whatever I need to send to you.
