For the next two months I will be working on my dissertation full-time. I considered taking another two month hiatus from blogging, but decided to do the opposite instead. Since I think best when I can hash through ideas out loud and bounce them off of people, I'm going to commit to posting on dissertation-related topics at least 5 times each week from now through mid-August.
I'll avoid a long discussion of the premise of my dissertation, but will say that posts will revolve around the achievement gap, poverty, and social policy. If you're interested in those topics, I hope you'll join me in an online discussion of them. If you're not, I hope you will be two months from now.
update: this idea got shelved pretty quickly: I'll try to refrain from making promises I can't keep in the future
