  •  Wow. (0+ / 0-)

    Sounds like a good reason to get the hell out of New York.

    Hell of a place to raise kids, anyway.

      ...advocating for Charters!

      If the Democratic education policy for Harlem is, "Wow, get the hell out of New York!", do you think that our party will remain relevant in the inner city? Or rural areas? Or poor suburbs?

    •  Virtually ever place I've lived (in 5 different (0+ / 0-)

      states) give you exactly one option where you can send your kid to public school, based on where your house is located.

      If you drew a 5 mile circle around my house, for example, there are 5 elementary schools, 2 middle schools, and 3 high schools.   But one cannnot choose where to sent your kid(s) - it's all pre-assigned.

      Of course, you * could *  get yourself on the committee that draws the boundaries (but I've heard that's a rather thankless job).
