Janet Frohnmayer, who recently won election to the Mercer Island School Board, has a blog. "Bookworm - Big Ideas for Busy People" is where she summarizes the interesting books and ideas she's read, including:
- The Overachievers, by Alexandra Robbins
- The Role of Parents in Athletics, by Bruce Brown
- The Homework Myth, by Alfie Kohn
- lots about Mel Levine (who I've written about as well)
- and more, mostly focused on education-related topics.
All her summaries are very worth reading. The only problem with the site is that she doesn't post enough!
