The Onion takes a look at how to fix our nation's schools. It's barely tongue-in-cheek but takes a fairly good swipe at corporate ed reform.
The Times had an article about how Seattle is first in the nation for kids living with both parents. This is not altogether surprising to me. I recall (and this was more than a decade ago) that my son's elementary class (this was a Spectrum class) had 32 students and yet there were only two divorced parents. That seemed an anomaly to me at the time but perhaps not.
It was also a bit of an odd article as it seemed to define intact families with conservatism (and how did liberal Seattle end up this way) via a non-traditional bridal blogger.
But I also looked up the cities with the lowest kid population because I had been quoting San Francisco as having the lowest, then Seattle. Turns out that has changed according to Forbes in Feb. 2014. Pittsburgh has the lowest "youth population" followed by Tampa-St. Petersburg. San Francisco is 7th and Seattle doesn't even make the top 10.
What's on your mind?
