I’ve seen school officials have some pretty interesting conversations with parents and students over the last few decades – explaining the school merger comes to mind immediately, of course the demerger too, along with the always charged conversations surrounding busing and even the kidnapping of a child from a school building.

21. Last Word: Mural Madness, Madison Plans and New Judges -

Maybe this discussion was bound to happen in a city where murals have been going up at a pretty good clip for several years now.
