In high school the two worse days of the year were the first day textbooks were issued and the day they were collected. Textbooks were always too large, too bulky and there’s absolutely no way to look cool with 80-lbs. of dead trees strapped to your back or on a sling, but is a school system as large and as diverse as NYC’s really ready … Continue reading NYC Public Schools going paperless?

I want to apologize for this set of show notes. Steven, the adult, is gone for a bit and all is chaos. We were light on news but heavy on conversation.
