The Playground of all Playgrounds

My first teaching job was at Halinan Elementary School in Lake Oswego where they are building a new playground. This article was in the Oregonian yesterday about the playground. My friend Heather's mom is the secretary there and she is quoted in the article. The old playground was cool, but what it is being replaced by... wow. The article says that the joke is you can see it from space. No school district money is being spent on it, one family alone donated $150,ooo. I totally support public schools and want good playgrounds for kids to play on, but I can't help but wonder what you could do in Sudan with $210,000. What do you think???
