8. Nope. While one of my first jobs was teaching (for a year),
Edited on Fri Oct-13-06 12:37 PM by TahitiNut
... I have no particular self-interest (axe to grind) in this proposal. Insofar as the local school district being willing/able to fund pensions, think about 'inner city' schools and the costs they incur for deteriorating infrastructure, security, social support programs, and other costs not borne in more affluent neighborhoods. Somehow, the larger sociopolitical context (the State) must be able to balance the resources in order to effect a more just distribution of educational opportunity. Poverty should not be an inheritance.
