I love how this gives both sides of this dilemma, as well as tons of anecdotes; facts and figures don't hurt, either.

This is a more thorough treatment from the WP of a report on the subject posted to NewsTrust on 4/13/2010 (see link). This time, the author interviews students and administrators in the affected area and adds personal interest. The issue is important and calls for much more publicity. My review of the previous article is equally applicable to this piece; please take a look.
