  •  Bring back busing (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    A teacher friend of mine told me back in the 70's "Busing is a drag, but they should do it anyway so middle-class parents get to see the kind of school conditions poor kids have to deal with."

    I gather that things have gotten worse since then.

    In a more enlightened world, there's a vast opportunity here: recall how government (specifically DoD) spending jump-started the whole microchip industry.

    Similarly, a campaign to rebuild our school infrastructure could jump-start a "green building" industry, while saving huge amounts of energy and teaching our kids about sustainable living.

    News is what they don't want you to know. Everything else is publicity. --Bill Moyers
