Just a little note about public education, about 4 months ago, a
study was done on world education. In the study, the U.S. High schools
were ranked in the lower middle of the group of industrialized nations.
At the elementry level, our education was considered the best in the
world. Somewhere after elementry school, our children started falling
behind. The study suggested, but could not confirm, that this was due to
social pressures such as clothing, cars, drinking etc...
