To name this blog, I had to go through scores of iterations of names that related distantly to the theme I hope to embed in this blog. (Must be a hell of a lot of bloggers out there.)
I was fortunate enough to hit on one related to my theme of, not necessarily education reform, but education improvement, that was suggested by a fictional character I enjoy reading about — Repairman Jack, an invention of F. Paul Wilson. Jack, a non-descript guy who lives off the grid, fixes things for money or a future favor.
I live in the real world and offer ideas for free, or in hopes of hearing some critical feedback. Jack keeps score. I do not. Jack has style. Direct and to the point. Sometimes I’ll write that way, and sometimes I’ll meander.
While getting a grip on my own thinking, maybe you’ll get a grip on your’s as well. Maybe we can both make some repairs to public education as we move along.
