Wanted to say quickly that I've got at least 4 meaty emails waiting for me, which I'm not getting to because they're vying for attention with a stack of student papers and so far the student papers are winning.
Hoping to get to emails later today!
I shouldn't be writing posts, either, but I had to pass this along.
C. just came into the kitchen and told me this story.
One of the math kids in his class, a kid so good at math that the calculus teacher (this would be the calculus teacher whose class C. has dropped) told him he could "sleep through every class" and get an A, got a 650 on SAT math.
I say that's a benchmark. A gifted math student who takes the SAT cold gets 650.
C. said, "He doesn't care about the SAT. He's going to X University no matter what."
His folks have free tuition at X U.
update: The last two lines above are ironic.
