Google Sheets permissions issue and my beliefs about technology and institutional improvement

I was contacted by one of Middlebury’s schools abroad regarding a Google Sheets issue. It’s a pattern you’ve seen before.

Change WordPress slug on title change

I’m trying to post smaller pieces of code as they come up to better document things for myself and maybe it’ll end up helpful for others.
