A reading blog where I will try to my utmost to avoid the mention of books.

This is what the NAEP has to say for itself:

"The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is the only nationally representative and continuing assessment of what America's students know and can do in various subject areas." (source)

...which is exactly the problem. I'll try to go into this more later, probably on my other blog, but for the moment, I just wanted to put this out there. I am perturbed.

story time

I have a story. You're going to love it. Last night, my mother went to dinner at a French restaurant in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I went to a French restaurant in Avignon, France. We compared notes to-day, and as it turns out, we both got French Onion Soup! (though in France they just call it Onion Soup).

It was amazing.

Then I walked on the Pont D'Avignon, but did not have enough friends to dance en rond.
