Just an FYI. If you write a grant proposal that has this in it:
"This data base can help departments of education start to think about how current and future high school teachers are taught how to teach writing."
"This statistic would allow us to look closely at the kind of education our teachers are receiving and to look at how they are applying their education in the classroom."
you'd better have talked to me about it first. Especially when you're talking about English teachers.
"Start to think"!! What the hell?
