Each year Beloit College puts out a Mindset List, a collection of facts intended to give faculty a healthy dose of generation-based perspective. The stats are a bit unnerving: Recent High School Grads were most likely born in or around 1990 and live in a world where GPS has always been available. They’ve probably never actually “rolled down” a car window, and the Soviet Union has never existed. From a literary standpoint: if he’d flunked out of Hogwarts, Harry Potter could be one of their classmates.
You’re listening to the High School Cadets March, composed by John Philip Sousa and recorded by his Band in 1927.
