I believe that there is a national movement headed up by plutocrats to disembowel public education.  If anyone is interested in this, I can post some info.

54% nice turn out. I suspect turn out might have been even higher if the election was during the term vs. during exam week.

Carla, I think you are totally correct in your assessment of the situation. An uneducated populace is a disempowered populace.  I'd be interested in your posting more information.
