    Diminishing state aid prompts Glen Ridge officials to consider converting schools to private, charter | NJ.com

    Wow. This could be a landmark in NJ and perhaps across the country.

    The school choice discussion has primarily focused on failing urban schools. It's very surprising to me that this might happen in a successful affluent community.

    With $300 netbooks and the internet why can't every American family secede from the educational system. As long as the kids do better on the tests than the nitwits running the school systme expect.

    Find interesting books for kids inProject Gutenberg.
