Back to school: Shaky economy hits kids

WASHINGTON – Hard times and higher fuel prices will follow kids back to school this fall.

Children will walk farther to the bus stop, pay more for lunch, study from old textbooks and wear last year’s clothes. Field trips? Forget about it.

Wow, it’s surely the end of civilization then.  I’m wondering if children who started school in the Fall of 1933 would have been despondent about walking a little further, and wearing year-old clothes.

As far as this bit about “old textbooks,” it seems to me that the older books are also the less politically correct.  In fact, Phyllis Schlafly says that 1970 was pretty much a crossover year; any textbooks before them are pretty much free of leftist propaganda.
