Hello Listers,

This morning, I read the posts of the last 24 hours about online tutoring programs.  As always, I learned from my colleagues and enjoyed reading the variety of comments.  Thank you!  

I do not have a problem with commercial enterprises reading our posts or participating in discussions.  I visit with their representatives at conferences, contact them when I need solutions that they might be able to provide, and believe that they have something to add.  We are critical readers and thinkers.  We recognize that there is a purpose to their involvement.  We use use their services when appropriate and choose not to use their services when we have better or less costly alternatives.

I do think, however, that it is always necessary to identify our roles.

Happy Spring!
