I refuse to allow this endeavor to become one of those blogs
that just links to things and adds snarky one-liners at the bottom, but I pretty much have a man-crush
on EdTrust-West and its director -- who is not a man, thereby limiting the usefulness of the metaphor, but not, I feel, lessening my force of feeling, the manner in which it ought to be categorized in the grand scheme of things, and hopefully your desire to read this letter about the CAHSEE
, which is strongly written and very well done.
It discusses the process of myth defying, and uses the phrase opportunity gap.
I like this, but at some point, we're going to overkill on gap-ology, the way our society over-killed on flannel and calling everyone by their first initial and an abbreviated portion of their last name.
