Accessible Entrance: Education for All

I took this picture at the back entrance of MS 127.  It got me thinking about schools and the accessibility of a quality education.


I took this picture of a sign nailed to the side entrance of Middle School 127 in the Bronx.  I wonder.  Wouldn’t it be wonderful if a free quality education were available for all from pre-k to doctorate?!  Quality meaning all schools would have science labs, a gymnasium, computer labs, ramps, elevators, sports, music; you know, just like the ones kids see on television.  Those with small class sizes of no more than fifteen scholars.  If all demographics were equal in educational opportunity and amenity…wouldn’t that truly be an accessible entrance?  I know this is more of a sign than a name, but  this sign names that particular entrance.  It just got me to thinking.
