Lead exposure and more

A story today in US News and World Report discusses a study published in PLoS Medicine linking early exposure to lead to later criminality.

This reminded me of all the hidden dimensions of inequality and how they relate to school success and things like disproportionate Learning, Emotional and Behavioral Disability classifications.

That thought reminded me of this video from the Educator Roundtable.
