The other day, KD commented that “Both my parents and my in-laws experienced periods of major poverty growing up. I think something has changed between now and then with regards to [how] our schools operate.”
I thought of that comment when I read this post over at Balloon Juice. It’s not specifically about education, but I think it’s getting at that same change that seems to have occurred, without ever having been consciously chosen.
I’m guessing that a lot of us could tell similar stories.
