Islands of Hope

From the beginning of this website, I have always hoped to promote a lot of "People Who Get It," institutions, academics, commentators who saw the way higher education needed to be reformed. Over the years, I have either become more cynical, finding less "People Who Get It," or there truly aren't that many who get it.  Nevertheless, there are a number of blogs that have arisen from something positive.
