The thing I do, really, is a communication with audiences more than any achievement through records.

Why I talked about political correctness: the colonial is now such a major taboo that any achievement of the colonial period, or any generosity implied in colonialism, is again fundamentally neglected or fundamentally not recognised.

Half of all kids in public education are below the poverty line. Two-thirds of the achievement gap comes from factors outside of school. Teachers influence about seven to ten percent of what happens in kids' lives. When you think about those statistics, you have to think about how to re-envision education so it's holistic and so we share responsibility.
There is neither creation nor destruction, neither destiny nor free will, neither path nor achievement. This is the final truth.
My whole academic career was totally out of Jewish anxiety, and issues surrounding achievement and adequacy.
