    It's the first time kids from wealthy homes are exposed to kids from non-wealthy homes, and vice-versa.

    we know how the well to do are so looking forward to their children's becoming acquainted with the children of those in an economic strata ( or of an ethnic descent ) that they've elected to ignore, disdain and/or loathe.

    Tune in tomorrow when we discuss the myth of massive resistance.

    Fear doesn't just breed incomprehension. It also breeds a spiteful, resentful hate of anyone and everyone who is in any way different from you.

      the fear that your children might not be able to live at the same class level as yourself.

      But our problems are collective, not individual, and trying to save ourselves by avoiding "mixing" only weakens us. What we need to be doing is organizing and engaging in acts of solidarity to rebuild the middle class for ALL our children. Our own and other people's too.

      And yes, public schooling is an act of solidarity.
