#1 "wraparound support services" = government replacing parents.

I'm surprised nobody has pointed out how racist it is to assume that being around black parents is toxic to their children.

#2 ...Twenty-five years ago, I dealt very closely with the Akron school system as a USAF recruiter.
It was hopeless then, and I suspect it hasn't gotten any better.

#3 Who produces the administrators and educators that run this ship? The same ones who credentialed Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, our universities and colleges. They all changed to paper mills in pursuit of subsidized monies.

#4 We always hear about how the US healthcare system is too costly and under performs. The stats are always dicey. Maybe we should switch out healthcare for public education as a more precise measure of the shortcomings of the greatest nation on earth.
