Position Papers
Our public schools are slowly bleeding to death due to family flight. We need to stop the bleeding.
How students are assigned to our public schools can determine whether families with children will want to live in our beautiful city or take their children somewhere else.
The achievement gap seems to be widening. Something should be done to help alleviate this, but not in a way that penalizes high-achievers.
