'State of educational emergency'

"The [Oklahoma City school] district — and more importantly, its students — are in a state of educational emergency," the state's largest newspaper editorialized today.

What to do about it? Well, obviously the same old non-solutions will be repackaged and trotted out for the umpteenth time. Nothing we can do about that. But here's one small request. While the education producers and "stakeholders" and labor unions continue to tinker with the statist quo, how about tossing a life preserver to some kids in the district who need new hope right now, and whose childhood won't wait for the promised reforms to take effect?
