Education Thought for the Day

I just started reading Jonathan Kozol’s The Shame of the Nation: The Restoration of Apartheid Schooling in America, and I am already pretty blown away by his observations. One early passages provides real insight into Kozol’s point of view and his passion:

Perhaps most damaging to any effort to address this subject openly is the refusal of most of the major arbiters of culture in our northern cities to confront or even clearly name an obvious reality they would have castigated in another section of the nation 50 years before and which, moreover, they still castigate today in retrospective writings that assign it to a comfortably distant and allegedly concluded era of the past.”

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.
