Occupy the Classroom

Kristof wrote a piece in the New York Times about early childhood education today:

One common thread, whether I’m reporting on poverty in New York City or in Sierra Leone, is that a good education tends to be the most reliable escalator out of poverty. Another common thread: whether in America or Africa, disadvantaged kids often don’t get a chance to board that escalator. 

The piece is well worth a read. And it's not too late to donate to BIKE NC to support early childhood education at home in North Carolina.
