Good book. Who would have thought that sumo wrestlers and teacher both cheat. Amazing.
But the thing that struck me as most significant was some thing I read in "Freakonomics" (on the recommendation of a lady board member), the author of a study went into the ghetto to get some data, the place was fairly well abandoned, he managed to find some individuals playing a game on a 6th floor stairwell. While he feared for his life (unfamiliar surroundings), the thing that struck me as most significant was when the unofficial leader of the gang (at that time) grabbed the clipboard from him & could not read what was on the board. Does that strike you as a failure on someone's part? It does me, No one in this great country of ours should be unable to read, it's the key to getting ahead. & the language used is ENGLISH, Tell that to the educators? that want to keep the 2nd language thing going.
Please tell me you aren't naive enough to think that the Republicans who live in the District send their children to the D.C. Public Schools?
Where do all the D politicians send their children, not public schools though they force others to stay there. No for their children it's off to the Quaker schools. Nothing but the best for the elite!
