This seems to be a problem which evolved over time rather than one which selectively excluded children from certain neighborhoods. If anyone can fill in the history (even the Review's reporter), that would be helpful.

In the interim (and for however long this has been going on), cre…

With clear consciences and happy hearts, Council members unanimously walked off the edge of a cliff...and imposed their new wage tax on local businesses.
