Education: The Star Wars Tie-In

My Sweetie forwarded the information shown below. Apparently, George Lucas has a foundation interested in educational issues. Have a looksee and send in your answer, if you're so inclined.

Edutopia, The George Lucas Educational Foundation's new magazine, is looking for reader voices and comments for our next issue. They'll be featured in an ongoing department called Sage Advice in which our audience suggests solutions to problems we throw out there. (Think of a reverse DearAbby.)

You can see a few of the many notes we received in response to our last topic, "What five things would you do to save public education?" at http://www.edutopia.org/sageadvice.

The question for the next issue is: How do you get the most out of substitute teachers? Send your 25- to 100-word replies, or even suggestions for future questions, to sage@edutopia.org.

(The fine print: Deadline is June 1. Be sure to include your name, location, and title or affiliation. Responses may be edited for length and style.)
