My Goal in Blogging

I started this blog in May of 2008, shortly after my election to the School Committee, because I believed it was very important to both provide the community with an opportunity to share their thoughts with me about our schools and to provide me with an opportunity for me to ask questions and share my thoughts and reasoning. I have found the conversation generated on my blog to be extremely helpful to me in learning community views on many issues. I appreciate the many people who have taken the time to share their views. I believe it is critical to the quality of our public schools to have a public discussion of our community priorities, concerns and aspirations.

Hi Catherine,

Just FYI: that wasn't much work for anyone. It was just a Google Translation and as usual, it's pretty broken. It literally translated Crocker Farm and Mark's Meadow, for example (badly), and got the word order wrong in several places.

On the other hand, Alberto Rodriguez's recent message to parents also contained numerous Spanish errors -- one of which Google Translate got right! (elementary schools are not escuelas elementales).

It would be nice if official document translations were revised by someone competent. It's vaguely insulting that this is not done.
