First there was this post, which discusses a blatantly racist (and leftist) policy from the Seattle Public Schools. Then today we read this:
Seattle Public Schools enrolls 47,000 students — less than half the number it had 40 years ago — but operates 99 buildings, three-fourths what it had in 1965. The district hasn't closed a school since 1989.
I wonder if there's any connection there at all.
