[Video] The New York Times has published a sample of powerful college admission essays written by applicants who stood out from the rest by openly discussing race and class. http://nyti.ms/1FtjLnX
Few students applying to college write about their family financial situations. But those who take the risk — whether poor or well-off — can stand out from the crowd.

That's great, Todd, thanks for reporting back! :-) (+Todd Wilkes)

Seems like so much of this type of thing is just a political party playing to its extremist base. In the long view, it's a last gasp and not the wave of the future. Glad to hear that's probably what's going on there in Indy anyway...

The new house. Lots to do, but everything is coming along. A lot of work left, but the dominos just keep falling in order. Nice when that happens for a change!

I think it seems so close because I pass by there a lot. We like going to Kalamazoo, Mt. Pleasant, and Saugatuck.

This is an FYI for folks to take a look and submit a public comment if this issue matters to you.

Even as a former (and hopefully soon-to-be) college instructor, I don't think that four years of college is for everyone. But giving everyone a chance at two years of community college is a good idea on so many levels.

Community college is where many people go to discover what they might like to do with their lives. For some, this means deciding that further schooling is not for them, but the educational refinement that two years of community college offers will stay with them for the rest of their lives as they pursue other endeavors. Others decide to work in a trade (and community colleges remain an important place of training for all kinds of trades). Still others do in fact decide to pursue further education, very often with a more specific and realistic set of expectations about what the future might hold and how they can get there.

Please give it a gander...
