Great post today by Tom Mortenson over at Post Secondary OPPORTUNITY:

Should this country’s dialogue on the dominance of class and inherited educational opportunity be dependent on an old man who works out of the basement of his house in a cornfield in southern Iowa? Or should such vital data be published by the Census Bureau?

You can see what he’s talking about over here. I’ve asked him what he thinks we could do to help.
