"In spite of language, in spite of intelligence and intuition and sympathy, one can never really communicate anything to anybody. The essential substance of every thought and feeling remains incommunicable, locked up in the impenetrable strong-room of the individual soul and body. Our life is a sentence of perpetual solitary confinement."

— Aldous Huxley (via petrichour)

"Right now, we’re getting a lot wrong. Force-feedings at Guantanamo, religious exemptions for corporations and universities. Prisons and health care institutions that are rapidly corporatizing—look at the boom of for-profit hospices and for-profit prison health care providers. I’d like to see a broader, more substantive public discussion about, well, the meaning of death, and by extension, the meaning of health."

"Across the country, teaching is an overwhelmingly female profession, and in fact has become more so over time. More than three-quarters of all teachers in kindergarten through high school are women, according to Education Department data, up from about two-thirds three decades ago. The disparity is most pronounced in elementary and middle schools, where more than 80 percent of teachers are women. Educators, advocates and lawmakers fight bitterly about tenure, academic standards and the prevalence of testing, but one thing most sides tend to agree on is the importance of raising the status of teaching so the profession will attract the best candidates."

While teaching is a predominately female field, the number of men in administration is disproportionate to the amount of male teachers there are.  And funny…those are the higher paying jobs, too.
