Coming out of public education, I am a passionate believer in it. Here, students will meet all kinds of students, both like and unalike, to them in every manner. Unlike its counerparts, American education, educates all students, regardless of academic, affective or physical attributes. It is the law.
My fear is public education is under fire, not for what it does, but for what it cannot undo: redress economic and socials wrongs.
