I believe in public education. And I did before I read this incredible piece by Diane Ravitch on why charter schools aren't the answer. It's long for the internet, but truly worth your time.
Also, because I'm in a linking mood, watch this "It Gets Better" video from Wellesley College students. I love my alma mater, no question, and it's openness to the queer community is one of the things I miss the most.
