This American Life – Three Miles

What can I say about this piece? This is an absolutely gripping piece of radio storytelling that sheds some much needed light on wealth disparity in our education system. The themes hit hard, and the story of these kids always hovers somewhere in the back of my mind. I guess the only thing I can say is… I’m sorry. This listen won’t be enjoyable.

If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be. – Thomas Jefferson
