"My task which I am trying to achieve is, by the power of the written word, to make you hear, to make you feel--it is, above all, to make you see." -- Joseph Conrad (1897)
Awesome. Simply awesome.
Airplane--it sums up the (il)logic behind standarized testing...Glad to see you are back blogging and writing... when I have more time I'll respond to your comments, visit your blog and your columns at In the Fray and at Pop Matters. I also picked up your article in Nougat.I was bragging about your writing achievements to the writing director the other day.Peace
I've been lucky to know some good teachers. Two of the people who taught me in grade school later became friends. I see them once or twice a year. That's more than thirty years of acquaintance, and something I hope you have with a few of your students Thivai. Both, incidentally, considered standardized tests to be shameful scams.
