I'll take the middle road, thanks

Why they teach

I enjoy summer as much as anyone. By about mid-July, though, I am very ready for the new school year to begin. There are probably a fair number of parents who feel the same way, but maybe for somewhat different reasons. The feeling of renewal that a new school year brings is always exciting.

Morgan: The Abbeville decision

While I was taking a finance class as part of my doctoral program in Virginia in the early 1990s, one of the topics we discussed was a lawsuit that had been filed in South Carolina, now called the Abbeville case, which challenged South Carolina's structure for funding public education.
