Ragazine.CC Volume 14, Number 2
Almost spring. Hang in there…
Welcome to Volume 14, Issue Number 2, of Ragazine.cc, the online magazine of arts, information & entertainment. We’re heavy this month on education articles that go from up close and personal in the classroom, to the effects of consolidation on communities that held dear their local district schools, to what happens when a teen gets pregnant and drops out of school, to what turns prospective teachers away from following through on their college curriculum. Of course, there’s much more, from politics to poetry, humor to interviews, fiction to memoir… give us a read, let us know what you think, and please — spread the word.
We need your help…
Ragazine’s 14th year of publication has brought forth a raft of new contributors and features we hope you’ve had a chance by now to look over, including Barbara Rosenthal’s “A Crack in the Sidewalk”, articles about the state of education in America, the Euromusic scene, Italian poetry and Romanian creative nonfiction in translation, and more. Someone the other day said that with the variety of work and subjects we cover, it sounded like an editorial “free for all.” He was right in one sense — so far it’s been Free for All , and we’d like to keep it that way. The fact of the matter? Ragazine has been from the beginning an eclectic collection of material with a global perspective — and it’s all been made possible by the continuing efforts of content contributors, editors… AND DONORS.
Plenty of publications focus on one thing or another: sports, politics, food, economics, fashion. We have a broader perspective, as you can see in the video on our “Donor” page… With that in mind, we’re once again asking for your financial help to keep this wheel rolling.

The platforms we run on, the features we offer — such as the events calendar and daily arts news feed — all come at a cost. Please consider making a contribution, large or small, as we work to keep bringing Ragazine to you with material you won’t find under one cover anywhere else.
As always, thank you for reading, and for spreading the word.
