Our Blog Poet on Accountability

Diane Ravitch's blog

Some Dam Poet writes about accountability:


Accountability is for students
For janitors and teachers
For those who flip the burgers
For those who clean the bleachers

For those who wash the dishes
For those who build the roads
For those who catch the fishes
And do the laundry loads

For those who do the weeding
For those who walk the dogs
For those who clock the speeding
For those who slop the hogs

For those who build the school
For those who fix the pipe
For those who truck the fuel
And pick the fruit when ripe

It isn’t for the wealthy
Or those that they install
In Chi Town and in DC
It’s not for them at all

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 82 now.
