There are two upcoming meetings in South Seattle that might be of interest to SS residents who read here. One is TODAY, at either 3 or 4 p.m. (so actually two identical meetings, your choice of time) about bringing the IB program to Rainier Beach High School. It is AT RBHS.

The other is NEXT Monday at the Rainier Vista Boys and Girls Club at 6:30 p.m. and is for the African American community to meet with Dr. Enfield. The Rainier Valley Post blog (rainiervalleypost.com) has more detailed information, and is where I found out about both meetings.

Okay, this is would be hilarious if it wasn't so depressing!

Budget Mix-Up Provides Nation's Schools With Enough Money To Properly Educate Students


"Once these kids learn to read and think critically, you can never undo that," Boehner said. "In 20 years, we could be looking at a nightmare scenario in which vast segments of our populace are fully prepared to compete in the new global marketplace."

"It could take a whole generation to cancel out the effects of this," Boehner added.

from Rainier Valley Post also:

5/14: The 37th District Democrats will host a community forum on the direction of the Seattle Public Schools at the Rainier Valley Cultural Center (3515 S Alaska St) in Columbia City from 7 – 9 p.m. All community members are welcome to attend. Admission is free, although donations are welcome.

A moderated panel of grassroots leaders and education experts will begin the evening by describing the role of the superintendent in the schools, the challenges facing our school district, and the “achievement gap” between schools in economically stressed communities (many in the Central and South areas of Seattle) and schools in wealthier neighborhoods.

Public comment will be invited after the panel discussion and there will be opportunities for written feedback. Notes from the forum will be forwarded to all school board members and other stakeholders in the superintendent hiring process.

Ach, mirmac, would that it were so, that the budget actually spent on education instead of war machines...I liked this part of the story you linked to:
"Congressional leaders also stressed that providing the nation's students with an adequate education that prepared them for college or supplied them with a solid grasp of basic knowledge could also have a devastating impact on the economy by creating a new class of citizens uninterested in settling for fast food meals and useless plastic knickknacks.

"And politicians will be adversely affected as well," Boehner said. "What will our nation do if the next generation knows that all we care about is our own selfish interests and pandering to the wealthy elite? Is that the future you want? Not me."
