Lindsay Swarthout replied to Kristen Albertson's discussion Over-Haul of the (US) Public Education System: What do you think should happen?
"I hadn't thought about the potential difficulties in reporting cost-per-student statistics - it's possible that the statistics I found are low.  You did not, however, mention data that suggests that cost-per-student in public schools…"

Lindsay Swarthout replied to Ryan The Awesome's discussion Would this work for a P4A video?
"I think that's totally awesome!   The spirit of P4A is to raise awareness - and this totally does that!    There are no requirements for charities - you can do whatever you want.  And you should do this.  Because…"

Lindsay Swarthout replied to Vertigo_One [Ops Mod]'s discussion Are religious symbols offensive?
"If it was taped outside the glove compartment, it was probably not visible from the outside of the van.  And it wouldn't have impacted visibility.  So, no, it's not a safety concern.   I do think the articles comparison to…"

Lindsay Swarthout replied to Vertigo_One [Ops Mod]'s discussion Are religious symbols offensive?
"I don't think that the distinction exists - both temporary and permanent things will be associated with the van and with the company.  If the distinction exists in your mind, that's fine - but that doesn't mean you can assume…"
