Trying to take the weekend off

I should be at the beach, but I'm online. . . I'm finding two online classes to be a lot to keep up with, especially when I'd rather be reading murder mysteries.  I am grateful to my friend Annie for giving me Still Life, the first in a series of mysteries by Louise Penny.  I just finished the third one, and I highly recommend them all,even if I spotted the murder in the 2nd early on.  The characters, the setting, and the infusion of philosophy and religion into the created world are excellent.  Check them out -- but do read them in order!

My Online Teaching class has been having an interesting discussion about social skills in online students and about the purpose of education -- what do you think the purpose of K-12 education, especially public education should be?
