Let's extend that argument:
If your child should not go to bed hungry, no one should have to.
If your child should not walk in fear in a dangerous neighborhood, no one should have to.
If your child should not live in a high lead environment, no one should have to.
Our Governor likes to talk of folks "having skin in the game," and he's right, having stake in an issue does hone one's views.
I just wish all of those clamoring to close "failing" schools would work even half as hard taking care of the children who go to them. Our children become invisible the moment the leave the schoolhouse.
