Great to hear from you and to read your “Freedom to Choose” paper. You are not alone Barbara. You are the Star Thrower and you continue to make a difference.  And there are others. I can’t believe it is a quarter of a century since we met you in Sheffield and shared with you the work we were doing to bring total quality principles into schools that were failing.  It made a difference!  Just to share a little of our story in the UK.
