xcv: World War 2 London organized sending their children to the countryside to keep them safe from air raids.

It's time America considers well funded public boarding schools for its youth. An idyllic countryside setting would be a great equalizer to break the cycle of poverty. All students could be getting the same education from adult role models that are uncommon back on the streets and Americans would see there's more to the world and culture beyond the limited boundaries of gang turf or surburban bubbles. Start with areas that qualify as war-zones like Chicago.


That's racist.

At least that's how it will be portrayed when the "community leaders" realize their money and power base are threatened.  There's no personal power to be gained from actually helping the poverty-stricken, only from talking about it.

Half-hearted?  They can't keep drugs, phones, weapons and other contraband out of PRISONS!  How exactly will they completely get rid of them in Chicago, in Illinois, or in the entire US?  Oh, you mean gun control for LAW ABIDING citizens.

So we've given up?  It's just "safe passage" maps now?  Is that the best we can do?  Really?  If that's the case Detroit looks like an up and coming community in comparison.  I remember growing up in Chicago in the 80s in a northwest side (Austin and North Ave area) neighborhood and even though it was sketchy at night during the day my brother and I could walk to the Walgreens 2 blocks up with no real problem. I miss the Chicago of old.  Sketchy but not tragic (at least not for me).

But that would screw up the education budgets.  Some schools would spend less since their bus costs would go way down and too many empire builders have their snouts in that trough.

I'm really not sure on how similar it is but years ago for me it was the complete opposite. Our family lived out in the suburbs and our two choices for school were either a French or Catholic high school. If those weren't an option the kids would bus an hour and a half into a crap neighbourhood for public school.

If there were a way to filter out the garbage the kid would be taught I'd stick a kid in a catholic school over a public school at this point.

I think the idea is that if murders are routinely happening on the "safe route" it might not be that safe, even a whole two weeks later when school gets back in session.  It's not like these maps are sending them past "murder club" that's only open 9 pm to 2 am, weekends only.

LOL, gun control. Anyone without a felony who $10 and a photo ID can get a FOID (firearm owners ID) card here by mail.

It's harder to get a voter ID card in Texas, but the right insists that this is "gun control" and it must be a huge failure because somehow it's not working.

Ignore the fact that many of the guns getting into the hands of Chicago's gang members are being brought here from Indiana, which is a whole 20 minute drive from the south side, where their gun laws are much less strict.

I think the real issue is that a city has to create a DMZ in hopes of preventing the killing of school children. If your society has devolved to the point where you can't even be sure your kids can survive a trip to school, you've lost civilization itself.

Well, we haven't lost the entire southside. The area around Midway, Beverly, Hyde Park, and Bridgeport/Chinatown are decent. The place we really need to bulldoze is on the west side... Austin.

Also they are closing schools because of a concerted effort to move people out of the crappy neighborhoods and into the burbs or down state. The schools are undercrowded on the south and west sides. I would guess that the whole northside thing is gonna start spreading to everywhere except Uptown. Its already happening... people a little older than me are staying in the city to raise their kids and my generation might do the same. There is little desire to go to the burbs and there is plenty of room in the city near public transit. Just gotta get rid of the gang bangers somehow.
