The story is told to me by my friend (with his permission tag “mine”)
It so happened that my friend is the owner of a good business, but nobody will advertise (great t-shirt, bag, sweat pants — all of it). In the school, his daughter, a group of parents decided to change the class desks. By the way, they were in a normal state, such as:
But I wanted a new one. After discussions, the parents were divided into two unequal groups: those who could chip in and 7 people have given up (corny no extra money). They have put before the fact that their children will sit at the old desks. When my friend offered to chip in a little more and buy the desks at all, the parents shook his finger at his temple (“why we need for someone to pay, no money — let sit at old desks”).
In the end, he refused to chip in. In his arguments that it would lead to a split class of “poor” and “rich,” sent him almost openly.
The day came x. In the class brought in new desks. Such as:
Four old desks pushed to one corner, there was a type of ghetto of “poor” students. Mothers shone. When my friend asked them, not remind them that the story of Our Rashi about free and paid patient received the answer: “Nenuacho!? Can afford it!”
It lasted exactly 1 day. The next day came to school found the old desks with new. Such as:
Plus children’s chairs. Such as:
So. Now these armature running around and screaming that this is discrimination that belittle their children and that everything should be the same. Friend looks at them and ugorayu.
To a question from daddy “why the Heck did you do that?”, he said, “Consider that it was a social experiment.
And anyway, you yourself wanted to have one part of the children’s desks were better than others, that’s out!”
