From the Editor

The best thing to happen to one-to-one computing this year was Cobb County. Sure, almost every single part of the program went wrong, but that's precisely my point.

It's difficult to even begin to put the disaster of Hurricane Katrina into perspective, much less make some sense of its enormous impact on the education of those displaced by the storm.

Quite obviously, I'm a word person. After 20 years as a journalist, I'm certainly most comfortable expressing myself like this, by sitting down and writing.

This was going to be the easiest Editor's Letter I'd written all year. It's summer and I wanted to reflect that change in atmosphere by putting aside the usual issues and bringing together baseball and education.

Call it state pride. But when the fight between Connecticut (where District Administration is based) and the federal Department of Education started, at least one argument got my attention.

Every year when I go to the American Association of School Administrators conference it's a great time to hear a state of K-12 education from the people who should know, the ones running the country's school systems. As usual, this year's three days were filled with great speakers and interesting sessions.
