Monday Morning Reading

At first glance, it could be a typical silly news story about kids skipping school. But the Rocky Mountain News buries the real lede 11 paragraphs deep.
Overall average attendance in DPS increased slightly this past school year, to 89.2 percent from 88.8 percent, the report found.

But it said that was largely because more students were faithfully showing up in charter schools.

Traditional DPS schools saw a slight attendance drop, according to the analysis.

Charter schools typically have a special emphasis and are run by independent groups of parents or others under school board contract.
Leave it to the Episcopal clergy to be the first to give this a go..
Shortly after noon on Fridays, the Rev. Ann Holmes Redding ties on a black headscarf, preparing to pray with her Muslim group on First Hill.

On Sunday mornings, Redding puts on the white collar of an Episcopal priest.

She does both, she says, because she's Christian and Muslim.

Good-bye zero tolerance in schools? Probably not, but I guess a correction is due. And what was this kid thinking? Whatever happened to baseball?
