New NPR Series on School Funding

NPR’s Morning Edition launched a really good, three-part (one story a week) series on inequities in school funding this morning.  As is the case now with Public “Radio”, the program’s website has excellent graphics, images, and links.

Part One dives into history (yes, Satan is implicated), court challenges to inequitable funding, and cases of districts with very different levels of funding.

We cannot pretend that we have equal opportunity via education with such deep inequities in school quality.

I’ve been teaching some of these things for decades now.  Unfortunately, we all have to continue to teach and talk and work against these things.
