Re: “Standing up for city schools

Referencing previous comments about "desirable schools". There are a myriad of magnet programs spread out across the district making every school desirable for families that are looking for that program. Most of the people I know including myself have kids in different schools because you can find a school to fit the kid instead of forcing the kid to fit the school. One of the many things I love about this district. No one is denying that there are problems in the city but what we are all saying is that the schools are not the problem, the concentrated poverty is. I don't think any district would have much more success with a population that consistently lives below the poverty line. That is where the real problem lies yet people spend so much time bashing the schools and their students. As many of us already know, the schools are good now we need to change attitudes so we can better balance the socioeconomic demographics and not just improve the school performance but also improve the strength of our city.
