78. OMG! This post gave me chills!
You really did hit on something here. It truly is hard to trust once you've been wronged. Spot on.

We lost our sense of community when the busing started. Instead of wasting money on traipsing poor exhausted school kids around town, adding to the pollution and the kids' exposure to same, they should have used that money for the schools! If anything, change the teachers around, not the students? That money could have been used to make sure that all of our schools were equally staffed and supplied.

I feel betrayed by my early academic experience, as do my kids. They can all read and write, more because of their parents than their school. There were several stand-out, wonderful teachers, no question. But the damage done by poor administration, and horrific laws, can't be overcome by a few good teachers. Sadly.
