Want to Know Why Community Schools are a Good Idea? Read This Post

Actually, you really need to read this post by In the Public Interest’s blogger Jeremy Mohler, who interviewed Paula Oxoby-Hayett, community school coordinator at Enos Garcia Elementary in Taos, New Mexico. If EVERY school serving underprivileged children had someone like this it would be possible to lend a helping hand to thousands of families and even more children. And please don’t tell me we “can’t afford this”. We can, after all, afford police in 58% of our schools. We can clearly afford community outreach coordinators in those schools— maybe even INSTEAD of police.
