I could stand to learn how to eat an orange daintily and I am a fully evolved modern woman.

How about trips to Appalachia, or North Dakota's tribelands, to learn about human rights, and impoverished living conditions? I'm amazed at the amount of money spent on spiffy junkets to the rest of the world by our privileged kids, while problems go festering at home.
I see this play out in the latest rush to the trendy world of establishment funded "social entrepreneurship", where solutions are created by Ivy League graduates for those in far off lands, while remaining allergic to the travails of their fellow contry men and women.
Elitism just rubs me the wrong way, I guess.

Just for your information Elaine Womack, I am a student at Castilleja and we have a global week every year to raise our global awareness, and many speakers and assemblies about global issues. Just last week we spent the whole day volunteering to help kids from an East Palo Alto School and donated over 10,000 books as a school to East Palo Alto Charter school, kipp academy, and YES reading. The party was intended as a gathering for alumni to reunite and to culminate the centennial achievements of the school!
