Dear Ms. Kamenetz - I've received 3 emails so far this morning about your op-ed piece in the Times, saying, more or less, "It sounds like she's rehashing your new book." This is indeed frustrating, given that this book involved more than nine years of research on my part. As you can easily determine online, I'm also working on a book called The Ageless Society, arguing for competency-based assessment across the lifespan. Please see:
