A good read if you have the time. The school was going to close after 150 years but the recently raised some more funds. I say let it die.

Antioch is (was?) an amazing place. I didn't read the entire article, but I hope it pulls through. Their cirricula and co-op/work study program, in spite of political leanings, produced amazing graduates.

And if you've ever been there on an unofficial no-clothes-day, you'd understand the place. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

After reading the entire article (and squirming in my chair as my posterior numbed), I have to ask: What else did they expect?

Even the most cursory reading of a history book would have told these people that, just because they are alive at this point in history, people will be people, no matter what they think "should" be true. In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.
