Great roundup as usual. On the divergent trends question in k12 - my quick take is that universal lunch and choice are divergent are it's one size fits all thinking vs more choice for parents. But you could argue both are more funds regardless of means as well for different school elements I suppose. In terms of the community schools trend and choice -- I see that as just one of the responses schools may have to make to be able to keep students in the wake of more options so I see how you can argue it's divergent but I'm not sure that's my take.
