Hey All, I had a couple comments, and wanted to make a couple changes, but wanted to explain my reasoning and invite feedback first... First, I think that one linguistic hang up I've had is with EQUATING civic intelligence to things (civic intelligence AS education, etc.. ) I think there are certain CORRELATIONS that we can make, but such language has an air of finality to it that takes away from the sense of curiousity.. Perhaps we could rename the chapters something like: Civic Intelligence AND education, etc... Also, We probably don't need two chapters on policy, so I took one off and renamed it! What do you think? If this is going to be read by other evergreen students, Lets actually push the edges of our own learning and stretch a little! ~LEon (And I'd say the education perspective is probably one of the best places to work.)
