Thank you for this podcast, Mark! It was great to hear more about the characters and actually made me more optimistic. It also made me understand a little bit more about the context of the chapter. I do still feel like maybe more credit is given to Uri than there should be. It seems to me that Ivonne and the graduate students are the ones who do the work of actually turning failure into success, but as I was not in the lectures, and Paul Tough certainly was, I walk away believing more in the power of Uri's teaching. I also still feel like Tough missed an opportunity to compare Ivonne to Erica who seemed to me to have much more in common.
