Jay,

I have always loved TED and this is just one more reason to continue. What a wonderfully uplifting idea and I truly hope that Bertie County is just the beginning. Thank you for sharing this.

Fred

PS In this case TED is NOT a person.

Fascinating.
What a remarkable woman, the school board ought to be ashamed of themselves for their shananigans though.
Thanks for posting this Jay.

Rob.

Count me in as another TED fan....

Great story! Always inspiring when vision and perseverance find a way to prevail over entrenched, resistant, unimaginative and ineffectual "powers that be."

Thanks for sharing, Jay.

Wow. I just love seeing smart, dedicated, motivated, effective people doing good work. Very impressive. I'd love to check back in 10 years to see what the longer-timescale influences have been.
