This is misleading. Very, very few colleges look at applicants' social media footprint. No time.http://t.co/Ulcs5x19nc

Dang. It's no wonder that so many of us leave high school and college with no idea of what we really want to do. We get told what to do.

Yet, the adults with political, corporate, and educational wealth and power—who demand “no excuses” from schools and teachers serving the new majority of impoverished children in public schools and “grit” from children living in poverty and attending increasingly segregated schools that offer primarily test-prep—embrace a very odd stance themselves: Their “no excuses” and “grit” mottos stand on an excuse that there is nothing they can do about out-of-school factors such as poverty.
add disclaimer to grit..
or change word.. and add a page on Saxon word problems

These “no excuses” advocates turn to the public and shrug, “There’s nothing we can do about the trap, sorry.”
so trap as turtle shell

What is also revealed in this staggered 100-meter race is that all the children living and learning in relative affluence are afforded slack by the accidents of their birth: “Slack” is the term identified by Mullainathan and Shafir as the space created by abundance that allows any person access to more of her/his cognitive and emotional resources.

ha. so.. assumed slack wrong as well. was assuming slack time.. as in spaces of permission with nothing to prove.
comes back to original glossary of sorts deck..
creating new language

Slack” is the term identified by Mullainathan and Shafir as the space created by abundance that allows any person access to more of her/his cognitive and emotional resources.

so.. I like remixing...
because this is truth.. for all.. assuming.. we assume good/remarkable in everyone
there is abundance of that
perhaps next word tackle... abundance..
abundance of what

abundance that allows any person access to more of her/his cognitive and emotional resources.

this abundance already abundant.. ie.. 200 spaces in miles et al
just begs us and all our policies.. diplomas... credentialing... getting out of the way..
remarkable human spirit is in abundance as we speak..
just need turtle shell back... be set free..
redefine slack and grit... no?

They have the slack necessary to fail, to quit, and to try again—the sort of slack all children deserve.
yep. except many don't. that's myth. many of those are our invisibly poor.
ie suicide rate of 4.0s et al,...
