tell us what you think!

I'm here, not with my mod hat on but with my Rex-Foundation-writer hat on, with a request. I'm working on updating the Rex Foundation blog, and we'd like to get some conversation going.

As many of you probably know, Rex is big on supporting youth arts programs, especially those that bring arts education to kids in public schools. (See, for example, Little Kids Rock, which does...)

In the course of thinking about such things, we realized that there's sort of an underlying meta question, namely, what is public education supposed to be in the first place? What do we WANT it to be?

So we've launched blog topic to talk about it here. Please come on down and speak up! (You need a google account to post, but in this day and age most of us do. If this is a problem for you, lemme know and I'll try to design around the problem.)

Thanks!

stories on the Rex site

Recent updates that may be of interest:

Musician spotlight by our own bsclowds on SF band Tea Leaf Green, fine Rex supporters.

Profile (by me) on Disabled Sports USA's Wounded Warrior Project, a recent Rex Foundation beneficiary. Kirk Bauer, the executive director, lost a leg in Vietnam and had his life changed back in the day when some fellow vets took him skiing. Today the project's working with servicemen and women who've sustained severe injuries in Afghanistan and Iraq, using sports to help them and their families rebuild their lives.
