Fabyanic: Dog-eat-dog education

Two recent reports dealing with education paint a grim picture of attitudes about it. Statewide, Colorado children are being compelled to attend school in squalid buildings unfit for human occupation. Nationwide, super-wealthy, socially insecure parents are cheating and lying their scions’ ways into elite colleges and universities.

A recent Washington Post article drew national attention to Colorado’s indifference to children, especially in poorer school districts. It pointed out that statewide classroom and infrastructure needs now stand at $14 billion.
