Time-Lapse Story Chronicles Fates Of 24 Kindergartners

Classs_photo200Classcombo200_2I'm a sucker for these "time-lapse" articles that follow kids over what should have been their K-12 experience, even though they usually feature highly mixed and tragic outcomes (School 9 kindergartners had difficult lives in '96 Democrat & Chronicle).  Maybe it's the sense of depth you get from reading about kids' lives over a 12 year span -- so often lacking in mainstream news coverage.  Maybe it's the reality check that you get from reading about kids' real lives, over time -- not a year, a program, or a short-term effort.
