8. i completely agree with you.

my son did a year of americorp at a charter in chicago run by university of chicago. it was a neighborhood school, no tests no lotteries, but a very poor neighborhood.
the program taught high school drop outs to tutor kids and run after school programs. the kids blossomed. their test scores jumped 2 years.
we are stupid if we know this is what it takes and we cheap out on it.
