Schema-Root.org is an encyclopedia of current events,
with over 15,000 pages of current news headlines.
This site is "profusely cross-referenced", allowing readers to rapidly pursue their interests.
Cross-reference links embedded throughout the site help locate topics of interest.
The "schema" on the left-hand side of each page is a hierarchical (and somewhat arbitrary) categorization of the pages.
In most cases the tree structure naturally places similar topics close to each other, and so provides
a connection to related topics.
The column on the right provides navigation links to the interior of the site.
Every schema-root.org page is a cross-linked research base for its topic. Bookmark topics you wish
to return to.
A pre-defined search argument has been created for each page.
This is applied to news and information sources that are most likely to produce useful results.
New pages are added daily. If you have ideas for schema-root.pages, please send suggestions.
internal links vs external links
Because Schema-Root.org is normally used as an index to the news,
external links (blue) will open in a new window, preserving your
current location in the existing window.
Internal links (bright violet)
re-use the existing schema-root window.
who is doing this?
Some readers may be familiar with the 1969 U.S. Supreme Court case "
Tinker v. Des Moines".
It established that public school students and teachers do not "shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech
or expression at the schoolhouse gate". I was the first-named petitioner in that case. Mary Beth Tinker, who is my sister, and our friend Christopher Eckhardt were also named petitioners in the case.
If you would like to contact me regarding Tinker v. Des Moines, please send an email to

(I apologize for being somewhat cryptic there, but it is an attempt to impede robotic activity toward my email address. Every page on the site has a "contact us" link, which can also be used to contact me directly. Thank you for your patience.)
