On a taste of reality

Community Colleges in the States are rather different from Further Education in the UK. I don't know enough, nor do you have time enough, to explain the differences. But as this post shows, there is often an assumption that they are second-class institutions.

Far from it. The linked page shows just the same passion as Fred Flower's "Language in Education"--a plea to value changing lives rather than mining academe--which is to blame for where I am now.
