    As a Faculty Kid, I grew up among academics. When I saw the film Educating Rita (which I very highly recommend, by the way), I was particularly moved by a scene in which the main character, a brilliant student from a working class background, hesitates to enter a University party because she feels like an outsider. I thought “you wouldn’t be so frightened of professors if you had been watching them get drunk in your home since childhood!”

    Another great scene is when Rita is at her job waiting tables and a group of undergrads are discussing William Blake. She pipes up, in her Cockey accent, “how can you do Blake without reading Songs of Innocence And Experience?” They look at her as though she had turned into a alien creature: the waitress understands their literary conversation!?
