Another Wrinkle

Must read Kati Haycock piece on the trade-off that made Edujobs possible.  Almost $12 billion was cut from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, better known as food stamps.  Key line from Haycock:

“Most shockingly of all, the education community–particularly those who assert that it’s all but impossible to teach impoverished children who come to school hungry or overwhelmed by family stress–is cheering the passage of this bill with its hateful trade-off.”

Example #45,546 that it’s hard to reduce any of these policy decisions to simple either/or’s.
