    I went to school in a 2 room schoolhouse in New Hampshire and because my father was a farm leader with a national organization, as well as a framer, I got to meet the children of his colleagues from the midwest. I was appalled at how far ahead of them I was in terms of education. Part of it was that my parents wire both Columbia grads, but part of it was the history of excellence in education going right back to the Massachusetts education act of 1642. I am not overly that Massachusetts still has the ability to create good schools. We learn ’em real good thar.

    Boston public schools are 41% Hispanic, 36% black, 13% white and 9% Asian (mostly Vietnamese).

    Those enrolled in the private, charter et al schools are 46% black, 37% white, 13% Hispanic and 4% Asian.

    So, from what time capsule did that photo come?
