Nature or Nurture

Mary Oliver, Upstream, via Kindle, writing of Ralph Waldo Emerson

Outwardly he was calm, reasonable, patient. All his wildness was in his head–such a good place for it!

Yet his certainty that thought, though it may grow most robust in the mind’s repose, was sent and meant for participation in the world, never altered, never ebbed.

What I’m Posting

On Facebook, in response to https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/projects/college-mobility/elon-university:

Elon is one of 38 universities that have more students from the top 1 percent than from the bottom 60 percent.UNC-Greensboro, on the other hand, has zero students from the top 1 percent. The median annual family income at Elon is almost one-third that at Elon.

Do I want my children to go to a school that does not have other kids like them?
