Sacramento Bee Tries To Involve Parents & Teachers In School Improvement

The Sacramento Bee has begun an initiative inviting parents and teachers to let them know if classrooms are not being heated well (or not air-conditioned in the heat).

They then put the info on a map and try to shame districts into fixing the problem.

I guess you’d call this an effort at community journalism. I suppose it can’t hurt, though sometimes I get concerned that efforts like this are similar to talk radio — people get an illusion of doing something by just complaining, without taking any action to actually solve the problem.
