Bureaucratic Politics?

Seems Tacoma's mayor spoke on a national news show to talk about an education-housing program at a local elementary school.  Interesting...this is the same school that last year declined the offer of a free reading support program for struggling readers. ( link to a news story.  You have to take my word for it.  And you should...I was a tutor in the program in question.)

I don't know if there's a lesson here, except perhaps that the educating of children--like so much else-- is also subject to the political and bureaucratic forces that can so often stifle or squelch good and effective work.
