We need a place to be proud of

About four years ago, while living in Buenos Aires, Argentina, I went riding with my father-in-law Nacho to pick up my wife. It was just after I had finished college. I had moved down to Argentina to be with her until we could both come up to the US. She taught in public schools in the South American country and boy were they rough. Desks barely standing, schools that looked like a tornado had swept through and a lack of resources that just made you feel for the kids and the teachers. By comparison, when my wife saw schools in Charlottesville, she was astonished. She took a walk through my high school, Monticello High, and was amazed by how clean and new it looked. For her, it was perfection. She then showed her mom, also a teacher, Burley Middle School, and her mom couldn’t believe the resources, the size and the quality the school had. I had never realized just how well some schools in Charlottesville and Albemarle County were maintained. Sure, there is more money there, but people there also realize what is needed.
