This blog is  Sandy Crux’s personal blog that began in January 2006 under the name “Crux of the Matter.” It has been about both education and politics through most of its 12+ years.


Sandy is a retired educator who has taught at every level of the education system, from elementary to teacher graduate education in two Southern Ontario universities. She received her Ph.D in educational psychology and curriculum from the University of Toronto at OISE in the 1980s. She retired in the early 2000s, although continues to give teachers and parents advice on learning strategies.

In the mid 1990s, Sandy was also employed by an MPP in the Mike Harris government during the first mandate — as an Executive Assistant and Communications Strategist.
