    Chris’s comments in today’s Inquirer led me to read this site; it has so much appeal, it may become regular reading for me. The item in today’s Inquirer, pointing out the intertwined roles of parents, teachers, and schools in the growth and education of a child, was splendid. Well written and reasonable, it should make a good impression on any thoughtful policy makers who read it. Kudos to Chris for that essay.

    I really like this blog, I especially like the link you made between parents and children. I graduated from West Philly high (now I’m a soph. at U. Miami) and I can tell you that everything you say is true. The only thing left to do is to take some action to improve the situation.
