Jeff Bryant – America’s Schools Are Falling Apart—The Country’s Public Schools Need Huge Investment

You’ve probably heard about the fierce battle [3] over school bathrooms raging across the country. It’s an important story for sure because transgender students should not be blocked from entering facilities of their gender identity.

It also helps if you like gerunds, since pretty much every header in the administration’s Budget document is about “building,” “investing,” “reflecting,” “partnering” etc. But the most essential talent is being able to …
