They set a much better example for their children. Also, these schools exist in communities with much lower per capita rate of diruptive influences and have a greater ability to deal with disruptive students.
    Amen to that....the military community has its own culture. After years of not living near a military base, we moved close to Luke AFB and started using the commissary. Just driving thru the gate is like entering a different world, a cleaner one, where people are more courteous, law abiding, cooperative, etc.

When you start focusing on providing services such as education based upon these artificial breakdowns of society instead of society as an homogeous whole then you break the system. Any group that hyphenates their American status needs to assimilate into the existing whole, not exist seperately.
    That would somewhat remain true if it was an intentional breaking away or refusal to be incorporated, however, the evolution of the group label was occurring at the same time that they were being de jure and/or de facto differentiated in the United States.

    Tragic. Truly.

    This should be added to your post....

    If there wasn't any teachers left in the schools then there would be no open schools.
