How not to write about grade inflation, or education, for that matter

The main point Bryan Alexander makes here - and I agree with him - has nothing to do with grade inflation (though of course all but one of the comments addresses grade inflation). It is this: that writers should not regard the so-called elite universities as representative of education in general. "I’ve blogged about it previously," writes Alexander. "As inequality among Americans increases, and gaps between campuses widen, it’s increasingly important to bear that reality in mind, not disappear it in parentheses."
