This Says It All

24Feb10

Check out the two different but similar stories on projo.com tonight.

We have the story about the rally in protest of the firing of hundreds of teachers in Central Falls.  The paper cites a police source of 600-700 protesters.

Contrast that with the story about a meeting held in Providence last night by superintendent Tom Brady to discuss how schools should be improved.  Seven parents showed up.  Seven.

So that tells us a lot.  The order of magnitude is 100 on what it takes to get people interested.  Start talking about the problem, no one shows up.  Start looking for solutions, no one shows up.  Implement a solution and 700 show up.

That’s just pathetic.
