Savage Inequalities
NYT Magazine piece on the whole No Child Left Behind mess and the persistent inequalities in our nations schools and children. I personally don't believe race plays a role in standardized test score results or on the kind of education a child receives, I believe it's only really a question of money, namely how much a child's parents have, which is why I am glad this piece focuses more on economic disparities and their tragic results. Heres a thought, maybe using local property taxes to fund schools isn't such a great idea.
