The Legacy of Brown
 ARE YOU “GIFTED”?
ARE YOU GIFTED?
I was a kid who started off like all kids, kids wanting to learn. But what happens when you start school? And what happens when you
get the perception somehow that you're less
than others? Luis Rodriguez, author/lecturer
IT'S ALL ABOUT THE MONEY
IT'S ALL ABOUT THE MONEY
Money talks.
It pays for the quality of the classroom,
it pays for the quality of the teacher,
it pays for the books. David Rosen, parent (Hastings-on-Hudson, NY)
DO WE CARE ABOUT INTEGRATION?
DO WE CARE ABOUT INTEGRATION?
For some people in town the METCO program
is the be-all and end-all and they feel that
without it the school system will be no good.
I don't feel that way. I think that diversity is important, but for me that's not a primary
thing that drives my life.
Barbara Low, parent (Lincoln, MA)
DID YOU PASS THE TEST?
DID YOU PASS THE TEST?
The fact that 42,000 students failed the third
grade FCAT [Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test], you know, the impression
that it's too high of a number may be wrong.
In fact maybe it's too low a number.
Jay Greene, The Manhattan Institute
