Alliance for Quality Education
March 5th is a big day for events (see both the entries below this one for other March 5th events).
One of the things that gets me angriest about NYC is the fact that schools keep getting cut. And even the money put in increasingly is going to a form of privatization that leaves more and more kids behind. We are hurting our own future, hurting our children by doing this.
