    OK- I’m not a Scrooge and have been doing what I can to help Katrina evacuees. But this bit just struck me as presumptuous:

    Stanford encourages parents not to let their children stop learning. Whether in a shelter, hotel, or living in some other temporary arrangement, Stanford said parents can take their children out to see and do things and learn about the community. “Learning does not happen just in the classroom,” Stanford said.

    She said parents can associate with a home school group to take advantage of their activities or can go to the local school and request books and activities for their children to do while they are not in school.

    As I being too sensitive? Or does this read like Stanford assumes we’re a public resource?
