  1. That doesn’t surprise me at all. I used to work at public schools in different districts of different income levels and demographics. When I worked at a “whiter” district, there were way more new things (technology, textbooks, extracurricular programs, etc) than when I was in a poorer and more diverse district, so I saw this firsthand.

    • Hello Ospreyshire. Thank you for the information. It is something that breaks my heart. No child should have a “lessor” education, and certainly not due to race. You know if we had mandatory mixed schools and require all children to go to public schools like some countries do, all districts and schools would be fully funded. Those of means would insist on it for their children and as they share the same schools the lower incomes would have the education advantages money can buy. The Republicans have demonized public education for decades with the intent to make lower incomes in to a basic almost slave labor force and their wealthy children a management corporate ruling class.

      • Sure thing. I wish everyone had the same level of education. Public education does have great potential, but it’s squandered more often than not.
