I have to say that all the money and concern seem to be wasted, and ineffectual, trying to get kids, particularly poor kids, a good education so they can be good and happy citizens.
Here Star Parker talks about a program for kids in poor neighborhoods. Good luck Dr. Fuller.
Seems like we have this problem–schools don’t teach kids to be functional adults. Dr. Fuller is another guy with a plan. The Teacher Unions are, no doubt, are opposed.
So we talk about the problem with close reading, a big common core effort to eliminate the buggabear of cultural advantages.
