We live in a country that, one year ago this month, came together with a sense of national emergency, and bailed out banks that were “too big to fail.”
Shouldn’t we also be living in a country that can come together right now and bail out schoolchildren that are too small to be allowed to fail before they have been allowed to succeed?
. . .This is about much more than money. It’s about our priorities as a nation.
