Back To School Night

... obliterates the myth of "hard-working American families struggling to survive."

I've reported this before on the 'Post, but this year it was the same story at my daughter's public high school. only about 10% of  the parents showed up for back-to-school night. At our sons' Catholic high school, it was close to 95%.

That nauseating, recurring line in political debates about "hard-working American families, struggling to make ends meet, unable to chase the American Dream blah blah blah" is just a canard. Most of them expect success to fall in their laps.
