About this blog
I’m an enterprise writer at The Press Democrat, where I have worked since 2001. I’ve covered government, gangs, aging, an Indian tribe and casino, Sonoma State University and social issues, among other subjects. Now I’m covering education.

This is a place for news, debate, conversation and sharing; no flaming, please (unless I spell a name incorrectly). I also want to hear what you are interested in about education in the North Bay and what you want me to look into on this fascinating beat.
