You missed one: "Why I Am Marching on July 30"

Are you actually still pretending that "Ravitch's rabble" is beneath your notice? It's a manifesto, and whether the inbred cabal of reformy players might not like it, it's out there now.

Best wishes to Omaha's Learning Community, an innovative attempt to solve a national problem: the increasing resegregation in our school systems. Magnet schools have not been getting the attention they deserve, having been overshadowed by charter schools doing heroic work in ghettos we would do better to eliminate than offer limited ad hoc philanthropic subsidies. Districting is a key source of the inequities in America, so Omaha's cross-district cooperation is an effort deserving attention.
