When it comes to dating, we implicitly acknowledge that it takes time before we can both simply assume that we're hanging out this weekend without asking each other. With female friendship, we lack language to articulate those stages.
Matt Moore's insight:
I chose this article for Shannon because her other favorite hobby is hanging out with her friends. She could use this article to help her make new friends and keep the ones she has.
“There aren’t many things that are more important to that idea of economic mobility — the idea that you can make it if you try — than a good education,” President Obama told students at the State University of New York in Buffalo in August.
It is hardly a partisan belief. About a decade ago, on signing the No Child Left Behind Act, President George W. Bush argued that the nation’s biggest challenge was to ensure that “every single child, regardless of where they live, how they’re raised, the income level of their family, every child receive a first-class education in America.”
This consensus is comforting. It provides a solution everyone can believe in, whether the problem is income inequality, racial marginalization or the stagnation of the middle class. But it raises a perplexing question, too. If education is a poor child’s best shot at rising up the ladder of prosperity, why do public resources devoted to education lean so decisively in favor of the better off?
The anguished and often angry national debate over how to improve American educational standards, focused intently on grading students and teachers, mostly bypasses how the inequity of resources — starting at the youngest — inevitably affects the outcome.
“The debate about education reform is a lot about process,” said David Sciarra, executive director of the Education Law Center in Newark, an advocacy group for disadvantaged students. “To a large extent it is a huge distraction. We never get to the question of what resources we need to get the students to meet the standards.”
The United States is one of few advanced nations where schools serving better-off children usually have more educational resources than those serving poor students, according to research by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. Among the 34 O.E.C.D. nations, only in the United States, Israel and Turkey do disadvantaged schools have lower teacher/student ratios than in those serving more privileged students.
Bad language is becoming a recurring theme in the referendum debate. Yet it is not so much the predictable vitriol and smearing that we need to worry about. Nor is it about how we define ‘Scottishness’. Rather, it’s the fact that so much of today’s political lexicon is almost entirely devoid of meaning.
In response to The Term 'ObamaCare' No Longer Embraced By Democrats: Charles Cooke linked to this gem on Twitter, and I couldn't resist adding to my last post about how Democrats are no longer calling the Affordable Care Act "ObamaCare" because it...
Ask Aenor Sawyer, MD, about the promise of digital health, and she’ll tell you about a pitch for a health-related app that she critiqued not long ago. The app purported to improve spinal health – something that Sawyer, an orthopedist and a former physical therapist, knows a thing or two about.
