Still stalled on the Modumath course — if we have to rewrite the path to  all. those. images…. well… tho’ it would be so much better to organize them into proper folders and have the path make sense.

This is worth the close read to get people from being more than a statistical category, and past “improvements were made.”   It challenges me, because I could slip into agreeing with the people they mention who think lower achievers should be the higher priority…but there’s that “extreme racial homogeneity” problem.  This article includes  that students […]
