    Ah so what you're saying is that there is something deficient in education as it is. What is it?

    Hahaha... yes Hatuey, let's get back to discussing how right wingers are trying to "screw up education as a whole" with vouchers.
    Of course they are. The right wing in America is notoriously anti-education. It supports non-science like creationism and intelligent design. It seeks to introduce religion and prayer into our schools. It seek to challenge scientific claims with non-controversies. The list goes on.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Grades getting lower and lower should be enough proof that PSAT doesn't work.

    When I was a kid, my teachers encouraged innovated thinking. Now kids can actually get a failing grade if what they write isn't in the standard text books.

    I love it when people who never played in the game try to "fix it" for everybody else to make it better.

The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
