Education: Is it really just about the money?

During the past few years, we have been reading about the alleged, and proven, failure in our public schools. We have been concerned and worried about the reasons for these failures, Christopher Robert Lee, the author of the letter partly entitled ” Bar is too low…” obviously is concerned and worried as well.

To read an articulate, to-the-point letter from an involved public high school student packed a punch of unfortunate reality. And if Christopher has thought about this reality and now has written about it, it is likely that many other like-minded students feel the same as does he.

It is not only the “outside” public body, but also the “inside” student body that are worried.
