Did you read Cory Doctorow's "Little Brother" ? Do you have kids in school age?

Continue after the jump, then.

Public water and public schools

One comment

Public water and public schools... mmmh, whaaat? What do public water and public schools have in common?

[ "Robinet cadenassé / Locked tap", CC licensed picture by nitot ]

According to doyle at "Science Teacher",

Public fountains are disappearing because the concept of public is disappearing.
Public water fountains are not dangerous (unless cooties are real). Tap water is safe, and the spigots are designed to prevent contamination.
The rise of bottled water here in the States shows how a public institution can be demonized and replaced by a much more expensive privatized solution.

[...] Charter schools are like bottled water--they're believed to be superior, and their standards are less stringent that their more public counterparts.
