Re: “An open letter to Wake school superintendent Anthony Tata

Magnet Programs in the WCPSS serve to create dual demographics. Little islands of non-low-SES have isolated academic experiences at the same schools as low-SES students. Just as Honor's course recommendations tend to exclude students of diverse backgrounds and create a pocket of students isolated from diversity, so to does the Magnet Program. At least this has been my experience student-teaching and substitute-teaching in the WCPSS as well as anecdotal evidence provided by a friend whose two children participate in magnet programs in the WCPSS.

Re: “From Dick Reavis' book Catching Out: The Secret World of Day Laborers

Spoiler alert!

I read this chapter yesterday and it wasn't a good day for having my heart break. Poor "Lester." This is also a good exploration of what it means to be cognitively impaired and/or physically impaired homeless, or both.

Later in the day, I watched El Norte for an educational course at NCSU. Heavy stuff. There are depictions of day laborers in that Movie too. Bleak.

Kudos to Mr. Reavis, with whom I have ridden the Wolfline many times in recent years without knowing him, for having the guts to go out there and toil with Day Laborers to get the scoop on their working conditions, instead of relying on interviews. I look forward to purchasing this book. Just as soon as I find a job...sheesh.

Re: “Eco-friendly parties

Cool. I read this too late. I already had my graduation party, but with summer coming on, I'll keep the tips in mind for our next BBQ/get together. Thanks!
