"Astoundingly High" Violence In Chicago

Education blogger eduwonkette takes a look at violence in Chicago and comes up with some interesting conclusions (A Closer Look at Violence in Chicago) -- including that violence is "astoundingly high."

"Education bloggers (present

company included) spill a lot of ink over the smallest details of

accountability plans, but it's important to remember that this is the

context in which our schools are working. Community problems inevitably

seep into schools, and the interventions that we spend the most time

talking about do little to help kids manage the emotional toll of these

events."
