Thinking about school and how my friends child is not enjoying it at all. The lack of ability to be flexible and allow all or at least most children to develop and thrive is still a huge problem. It is interesting to watch the corporate and religious fanatics inexorably take over the charter school movement as parents faculty and administration try to use it to create the flexible school. That being said the charter and interzone options do not address the underlying cause of uneven education. The root problem is still social inequities visited upon OUR (a society is parent to every child) children by families and society. It seems to me that a healthy society would expend the resources to give all it's children a chance at a good life. I would only take a couple of generations to turn the whole thing around.
