Here’s another one from the archives.
While searching my hard drive, I found something I wrote some time ago titled Science Manifesto . Now normally I don’t use words like manifesto which is a public declaration of intentions or beliefs unless I’m pretty worked up about something so I read it and thought that it was worth posting.
And I asked myself why I didn’t post it before. The date was from August of last year, but I knew the answer. Because I was a high-school teacher and teachers live and die by their reputation. Things you say, or that you are perceived to say can be used against you.
I didn’t want to rock the boat. I was afraid, and so it languished on my hard drive innocuous as it is.
Then again, it might be of use to someone, so I decided to post it. If you have an opinion, feel free to tell me about it. I’m open.
