SCHOOL'S IN SESSION AT 7TH AND MONTANA ...

                             

It was a lesson in extremes this morning at 7th and Montana as newcomer Carole joined the growing chorus of insiders concerned about the state of our educational system.  Genevieve and Carole -- both veterans of the same School of Hard Knocks -- regaled me with stories of underfunded programs, less-than-feasible salaries and bratty students.  Moments later, Bob and Liz arrived on-the-scene, renewed and refreshed from their volunteer program, where they provided 20 lucky students with free laptop computers.  What gives?  Are we raising a nation of borderline criminals or is our school system filled with little darlings who deserve free computers?  Like everything else, the truth is probably somewhere in the middle ...!
