Educational Inequality is Everywhere You Look

I’ve had crush on Aunt Becky for like 30 years. All the jokes about waiting for her forever aside, the college admissions scandal sheds light on all manner of inequality.

Just one example: This Mom Went to Prison for Enrolling her Son in a School Outside Her District

Brothers and sisters, we need to move beyond a zip-code or a township/city/borough/county line determining who has access to quality education. Schools with million-dollar tech labs a few miles from schools that can’t afford books. There’s nothing moral or American about that kind of abject inequality. Don’t at me with bootstrap stories. We’re talking about kids who haven’t been able to make any choices, and about the cycles of poverty or privilege they find themselves in.
