Editorial in Queens Chronicle on Equal Education Access

There is a newspaper editor that understands education and the American ideal of equality of opportunity. Read the Queens Chronicle's editorial on the disgusting inequities in Queens schools that calls for fairness for all students. Here is an excerpt.

Failing, charter, specialized, zoned, achieving — whatever a public school is labeled as should not matter when it comes to making sure every student has equal access to resources and a chance to graduate with the skills needed to succeed in college, should they want to attend.
This is not happening in Queens, and Mayor Bloomberg and Chancellor Walcott should be ashamed.

The editorial makes sense for sure.
