Accounting for my absence
Since I stopped this blog I have spent most of that time researching and writing my PhD, which I passed earlier this year. However, I noticed during the course of it that a number of my respondents had their own blogs, which suggested that I should get back to mine at some point. One of those, Jose Joaquin Brunner, an academic and former official in the Chilean education department, very generously posted my dissertation when I sent him a copy recently. Since he's done it I suppose it makes sense for me to do the same and let anyone who happens across know what I spent the last few years slaving over.
