    Public schools are almost always only as useful or high quality as public housing, mass transit or anything else that’s communist

    Oh anonymous, if we commies only knew who you were — we could locate you, have the KGB pick you up, and have you shipped off to the gulag where you belong. Better lay low!

    Realtors could be first line of defense here . . . extolling New Canaan or Darien when questionable out-of-towners show up. Take one for the team occasionally.

    Clearly you must be a product of no schooling. What an assine statement.

      All I know IB’r is that my own little humanities class at GHS ’71 produced 7 published authors including a Pulitzer Prize winner. That was just among 45 students. Not too shabby.

    Was Mr. Danielson still teaching English in ’71?

    Best (and coolest) teacher I ever had. Independently well-off, drove a Continental and a Riviera.

      I think I remember that name, Pulled Up, but Jesse Sommer and Barbara Hoppe (both lived in Old Greenwich, which tells you how times have changed) team-taught our Humanities class and they were fantastic.

    I think this means that families with special ed children are “questionable”. Sorry to impinge on your enchanted world in Greenwich with a child that is not perfect. Yes costs are a real issue but I’d like you to tell some of your fancy Greenwich friends with special needs children that their families are “questionable”- go ahead and take one for the team.

      I didn’t understand it as a reference to special needs kids but then, I didn’t understand it all.

    I find it interesting that, for whatever reason, people have started to notice and reply to that particular anonymous en masse. Even with his default name, his posts are instantly identifiable.

    I don’t know — sometimes I find him entertaining… 😀 I call him “California Rorschach,” named after a certain Watchmen comic book character, though I expect most won’t get that reference.

    (then again, I’m not sure if he reads the comments threads after his initial post or two)

    Anonymous – you are a fool and a know nothing. Excellent public schools are the backbone of this great democracy. Lose them and we will lose the vast talent herein. Go to Wikipedia and look up the “G.I. Bill” and see what it did for this nation. Then go back to whatever hole you crawled out from under.
