dead teachers and pubic policy

This morning I was proofreading some documents for a field survey, and at one point in a training document it says “Now, we will do a demonstration interview. [—] will play the role of enumerator and [—-] will be the dead teacher.”  What?!

No interviewing of dead teachers in this particular survey.  Next week I’ll be pretesting my paranormal baseline, in which we interview dead librarians, so that’s closer. 

This reminds of a paper I co-authored once in which my colleague accidentally wrote about the implications of our findings for pubic policy. I’m not sure what those implications would be, besides washing your hands after going to the bathroom or encouraging male circumcision to reduce the risk of HIV transmission.

For now, I’ll stick with head teachers and public policy.
