    fundamentally, we have a problem across the U.S., which is this: wealthy neighborhoods pay higher taxes...and therefore more goes into their schools. poorer neighborhoods pay lower taxes...and therefore less goes into their schools. shouldn't the 'playing field' be leveled? shouldn't there be equal funding of all schools, regardless of income levels? yes, what i'm supporting is socialism. but why are we punishing the children of low-income families for being poor? and why does the current system support keeping them there? and why, in this and so many other social causes, why is the private sector and the non-profit sector being asked to fill the gap? seems to me that in capitalism, duh, there will always be businesses profiting regardless of whether or not they stand up to their social and ethical obligations. You want Pearson to fall? Stop buying their teaching materials. Boycott the capitalist finger in our childrens' education.
