A recent flock of messages has come addressed to the discussion list sans
signatures. Please remember to sign your message to the list in some manner.

When requesting information from other subscribers it is especially important to
include your e-mail address for folks to reply privately to you. Please note
that some electronic mail systems indicate that messages are from EDEQUITY
rather than give the "return address" of the sender. In those systems, the
sender's information is lost if not included in the body of the message. Thanks.

Messages for the list should be sent directly to EDEQUITY@MAIL.EDC.ORG.
An e-mail message sent to EDEQUITY will be distributed to all subscribers
of the Internet list. Be sure to end with your name and/or e-mail address.

-Relate your message to some aspect of educational equity as defined in
the introduction above.

-Make sure to use descriptive headings so that others will know if that
topic interests them.

-When sending a message to the list, ALWAYS put your name and e-mail
address at the end of every posting so that people can identify you and
respond to you privately if they wish.

-When replying to someone else's message, include only a few lines of
their original message (including the whole message takes up a lot of
space and discourages others from reading your message).

-Remember that not everyone on EDEQUITY is an Internet veteran and may
not understand some conventions that seem second nature to you. Please
explain items in your messages fully.
