How can the nation's "newspaper of record" be so seriously indifferent to or ignorant of the major education issue of our day?
Americans are more generally accepting of these higher degrees of income and wealth inequality because of their staunch faith that American society is more of a meritocracy than other countries. This faith is woefully undermined by the data.
I will take a day and a stack of screeners (or links) and apply my 20-minute rule: I'll watch for 20 minutes and then decide if it's worth continuing. Many don't even take that long. Because a movie worth watching announces itself almost from its first frame.
