LAPD High by Laura Vanderkam, City Journal Spring 2009
Yes, Magnet Schools are another way inner city schools are trying to improve the quality of education for their population. They are geared to offering more detailed instruction for what the student wants to study, with the long term plan of getting them ready for college or vocational school after high school, in their field of choice.
If a student has a vested interest in their education, they will be willing to work harder to achieve those goals during school. I hope this becomes a trend in the public school systems everywhere, not just the inner city.
I'll stick with the abolition of high school approach.
I think it's telling that there is a POSTIVE article about public schools on here, yet only 2 replies.
I wonder if this would have been about shootings or teacher/student love affairs, it would be 10 pages by now.
Well, yeah! When there's something negative there, there's something to argue against. If there's just something positive, people can't say anything more than "I agree."
"Affair" implies equal status, as was a center point of the controversy over Neil Goldschmidt. And you don't want Detective Slowbum accusing you of anything unseemly.
