The Miserable Truth.
Shaughnessy, Mina
Journal of Basic Writing, v17 n2 p106-12 Fall 1998
Presents Mina Shaughnessy's 1976 speech, given at a time when great financial crisis threatened to result in the wholesale disestablishment of basic writing programs. Notes grave perils, and outlines some of the truths uncovered through the experience of Open Admissions in higher education, truths that are indestructible despite retrenchments and shifts in the winds of social doctrines.
