Professor Umbetwellie on Education Matters

editor's note: My thanks to Dr. Umbetwellie for the wisdom he shared with a young education student. "Be sure you're right, then go ahead". And thanks too, for his offer to add comments to this blog on an on-going basic. Even in retirement, the Professor continues to be an inspirational voice to so many.

Henry Ombetwellie, Nov. 30, 2009
I've followed your storytelling and impassioned letter writing for some time now, and often cring at your policy of never taking prisoners, I admire your effort to bring important issues to the floor for discussion. If I can help with this feature, I'm happy to do so. BTW, you still have not handed in that paper on the Progressive Education Movement, even though I agreed to give you a pass in Methods 105 on the condition that I get it soon. Henry Ombetwellie.

ps: editor's note: It's in the mail, Henry. Sorry 'bout that. Jack
