The Sachem community has no shortage of opinions, and our guest bloggers on Patch regularly contribute to the vibrant conversations that take place in the barber shop, on the street corner or in the parking lot after a school meeting. Patch brings those conversations into one meetinghouse. Here's a roundup of the latest blogs in our community.
Usually its the CEOs of companies that sit at a table as a server places a dish of food in front of them, but as James Bernstein blogged, at the Courtside by Marriott hotel in Ronkonkoma the tables were turned.

Meryl Ain, our education doctor, blogs about her recent experience at both national conventions, and more recently, the teachers' strike going on in Chicago at the moment.
Ain looks at how the unions might be choosing a poor time to begin a labor movement, given the economic climate. She also directs readers to other sites that have looked at the impact of the strike on economically disadvantaged kids and their communities. Read this blog and feel free to join the discussion.
