God Bless the Child

I am speechless at the irony of this photograph. Were the shelters handing leftover t-shirts out to the evacuees? Or did his parents actually dress him this way?

The public schools have always been the most democratic of institutions and a valuable safety net for America's children where they can find a warm, safe, clean place to have a meal, make friends, learn, and be guided by adults. All over the country, schools are opening their doors to displaced children. You can read about it in the New York Times.

And by spring, thanks to George Bush's No Child Left Behind Act, they will have been tested into oblivion.
