The Butterfly Effect: (luck, opportunity, cause/effect)
The meaning of the butterfly: Why pop culture loves the ‘butterfly effect,’ and gets it totally wrong
from a recent Article on Kozol’s work: “For nearly 50 years, this educator, author, and civil rights activist sounded the alarm about the damage done to pluralistic democracy by our increasingly polarized education systems. He argued that fewer integrated public schools mean fewer opportunities to learn mutual understanding and collective responsibility, essential qualities for a tolerant democracy. With his landmark New York Times best-sellers—Savage Inequalities, Amazing Grace, The Shame of the Nation—Kozol shaped a generation of teachers and writers covering schools and inequality.
