Re: “Civic leader Tom Frey has died

I met Tom Frey when I was thirteen and attending my first public protest, to keep World of Inquiry School open. He and another School Board member came out and joined us on the picket line. He was my first personal contact with a politician, which may explain why I am generally open to the idea of there being dedicated public servants to be found among the ranks of politicians.

Re: “Now will we act?

I find Towler's call for schools with an urban/suburban/rural draw, and "superior teachers, facilities, and specialists" meant to "bring together in one place...students of a large area," interesting. That idea , floated in the late 1960's, did not actually go "nowhere"; it was the basis for the foundation of World of Inquiry Elementary School, which families clamored to get into, and which (now a K-12 school) is still a gem of the City School district. In the ensuing decades, however, access for students from outside the district was dropped for political and funding reasons. The exemplar is right in front of our noses, but we need to find out what happened to the broad geographic, socioeconomic, and cultural mix portion of a successful formula for that school, so that we can keep from running into the same barriers.
