Re: “What can we do about our high poverty rate?

How about taking a look at things that have worked in the past? We keep acting like we haven't found the solution, but I believe we have found solutions, and have abandoned them for not very good reasons.

For example, the question of integrated education. My son attended the original Wilson Magnet School, from which he graduated in the late 80's. I signed him up for this school, because it was everything I wanted for my son--diversity, city location, high standards and freedom for students to follow their natural talent.
I was proud to say my son attended Wilson Magnet and prouder yet on graduation day, when the seniors who had received a scholarship to higher education were called on by name to stand up and receive applause. Student after student after student after student took their turn at standing. Almost every student had received some kind of scholastic assistance reward (perhaps with the help of inspiring school staff?). Tears came to my eyes. Today, my son is successful and doing well, his three best friends today, were in that same graduating class that night. They too are doing well.

Let's review what we've already done that at least started out with success, and then something happened. Have we been shooting ourselves in the foot?
Let's find out.
