If you have a child attending school in America, here are the headlines we're getting used to reading: "65 arrested in teachers' protest at state Capitol," "Teachers Launch 'Week of Emergency' to Help Avert Cuts to Education," "Schools urged to Cushion Budget Blows to Classsroom."
So I got really excited when I read this headline: Budget Mix-Up Provides Nation's Schools with Enough Money to Properly Educate Students.
This from the article:
"According to bewildered and contrite legislators, a major budgetary mix-up this week inadvertently provided the nation's public schools with enough funding and resources to properly educate students. . . $80 billion earmarked for national defense was accidentally sent to the Department of Education, furnishing schools with the necessary funds to buy new textbooks, offer more academic resources, hire better teachers, promote student achievement, and foster educational excellence—an oversight that apologetic officials called a 'huge mistake.' "
This seems to be the only national publication that has managed to publish positive education news.
