Continued Lament

A little more than a year ago I mentioned Lockhart's Lament.

A few days ago I found out, from a Math 20 student, about an interesting research summary by Jean Anyon, an excerpt from "Social Class and the Hidden Curriculum of Work".

Among other things, Anyon describes how the "lament" put forth by Lockhart does not apply to math teaching in private schools for the very wealthy.
