Not all schools are created equal, and the reality is far from that; metrics will begin to give you an idea of the inequity present throughout PPS. It’s an incredibly political and personally triggering issue for many, so rather than publicly draw lines in the sand and broadcast my own discoveries, I’d rather sit down with you for coffee and tell you about my experience working with 7th graders from every public school in the district and my experience attending PPS, from Ainsworth Elementary through Lincoln High School. #blessed #biased #closetothefire
