The Educator's Notebook

A weekly collection of education-related news from around the web.

Greta Thunberg Rallies The World Again With “How Dare You?!”

“How dare you? You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words… Entire ecosystems are collapsing, we are in the beginning of a mass extinction, and all you can talk about is money and fairytales of eternal economic growth. How dare you?”


Every week I send out articles I encounter from around the web. Subject matter ranges from hard knowledge about teaching to research about creativity and cognitive science to stories from other industries that, by analogy, inform what we do as educators. This breadth helps us see our work in new ways.

Readers include teachers, school leaders, university overseers, conference organizers, think tank workers, startup founders, nonprofit leaders, and people who are simply interested in what’s happening in education. They say it helps them keep tabs on what matters most in the conversation surrounding schools, teaching, learning, and more.
