Tacoma teachers on strike, what should they do? Go back for the kids, or stick out out for themselves?

What does everyone think? Go back and negotiate while teaching so the children don't lose out on too much education, or just go cold turkey until they get the attention of some of the politicians? I don't know how I feel. On one hand you have the kids who obviously need a good education but on the other hand you have the teachers who are trying to get their point across. Sticky situation :( …See More

About Me :)

I grew up in Calcutta, India, where I spent the first 22 years of my life. The picture on the right is an old photograph of Calcutta, from 1947. In my city, people like to live in the past and escape the present.

 

My father is a high-school teacher in Calcutta, and my mother specialized in the complicated job of raising a son. I am grateful to my parents for teaching me that there are greater things in life than making money. For example, knowledge.

 

I was trained as a statistician at the Indian Statistical Institute, where I completed my Bachelors and Masters degrees. The ISI was a seat of many pioneering contributions to statistics in the twentieth century. It continues to produce very good students.

 

I got my Ph.D. in statistics from Stanford University in 2005. My thesis advisor was Persi Diaconis, who, as many people know, is a very interesting person. I am highly indebted to him on many accounts.

 

I love mathematics, although I know very little of it. I do not know of a greater thrill in life than unraveling a mathematical mystery.

 

Shout out to my brothers company (denver corporate housing) and my frat (geek life)
