Starting Off the New Year with Something Positive

Susan Notes:

Don Perl, of the Coalition for Better Education in Colorado, started off the New Year by picking up on Stephen Krashen's idea. He sent this message to me and Stephen Krashen, who came up with the idea of Substance gifts. I only announced it.

Dear Colleagues:

Just so that you know that you have been an inspiration in so many ways. Specifically one of those ways is to give subscriptions to Substance to other educators. Our coalition just gave three subscriptions to three of our most stalwart members simply as a thank you for being such outspoken, persevering activists - ultimately giving voice to the voiceless - our children.
