Noted. Thanks, Carrie, glad to see this. If I remember correctly, Rev. Barber was a guest on Bill Maher's Real Time last season. The Rev. is a force of nature! I wish them loads of luck and hope many more join in.

What a marvelous man. He has a Sisyphean task, but is so optimistic. I wish him success and hope his efforts spread countrywide.

So none of the cut's or the ideas implemented made sense? For example, any high school teachers shifted from a seven-period day to a block schedule, a change that allowed them to teach eight classes a year instead of seven; and teaching assistants lost some of their paid workdays but none of the their class time, or buying some replacement books, but not new ones? Perhaps both sides have something to learn from the other.
