The Jo Boaler amendment to the NSF funding guidelines is very good news indeed, but I would not pop those champagne corks yet. There's many a slip twixt cup and lip.

Consider the FOIA, which is a fine thing in principle. Despite the clear intent of the Freedom of Information Act, there is still plenty of room for the mafia-minded to delay and conceal and to drive up the cost to others of meddling in affairs where they are not wanted. If a Jo Boaler has friends and sympathizers at the NSF, honest researchers like Milgram and Bishop will still find it heavy going to get their hands on the data.

Whether the Jo Boaler amendment is a good start or a red herring remains to be seen.
