The Richmond Schools formerly claimed to be "Illuminating the Path from Competence to Excellence."  In fact, most Richmond schools should be required to post the same notice as the entrance to Dante's Inferno.  The new Superintendant sets a longer but no less unlikely goal:

"The mission of Richmond Public Schools, the gateway to infinite possibilities, is to lead our students to extraordinary, honorable lives as inspirational global leaders who shape the future with intellect, integrity and compassion through challenging, engaging learning experiences guided by highly qualified, passionate educators in partnership with families and communities. 

Indeed, the Richmond schools deliver the scholastic equivalent of capital punishment to our kids at a remarkably high cost.  If the schools can't do a decent job, at least they should be able to do the same lousy job for a lot less money.


Fame!
