Weighing In ...
A dangerous trend
10/23/2014

First, parents at Gatewood Elementary came up with enough money to pay to keep a teacher there. Yesterday, Garfield High School parents received a letter from their PTSA telling them that Garfield must “produce” $92,000 by this Friday to save a teaching position there. The letter said, “There will be no replacement – the cancelled classes will simply cease to exist and the affected students will finish the semester with a hole in their schedules.”

A new study highlights the huge inequities at public schools across the country due to private groups raising more and more money to “make up” for inadequate funding. Couple that with the recent effort by parents at a Seattle school who raced to raise money to keep one of their teachers from being transferred and you begin to see the complexities of school funding and inequality of services provided to students.

Compressed folder

Here are the files ... I tried e-mailing but Comcast told me it was too big.

http://www.washingtonea.org/content/ftp/Red-BW-small.zip

http://www.washingtonea.org/content/ftp/White-BW-small.zip

As you probably know, just right click the folders to unzip after you've downloaded them. I'd already sized the images to 8x10 format for the wall display -- I'm not sure who is doing that part -- so these are not quite 1x1.5 ... more like 1.15 x 1.5. Let me know if that's a problem, or if you have trouble getting these files to work.

Thanks!
