Our eleven-year old daughter Louisa started the sixth grade this year. Like other proud parents in this part of suburban Houston, I pointed my car at the long line of gleaming SUVs edging toward Louisa’s new intermediate school. A welcoming and well-designed building reflecting our well-to-do neighborhood, Westbrook Intermediate ranks high in our state’s standardized tests. As Louisa tumbled from the car and entered the school, my wife and I counted our blessings.
