And by the way, this "thing" stands in the way of us implementing a Finnish like educational system that caters to the interests of the students rather than those of the board of regents. They have done some very bad things and are hiding a huge lie that would be exposed if they switched now. We will probably have to just wait for the scam to blow up. I think it will soon. Each year that student debt figure rises quickly. People are borrowing more for college than they are for cars now. Actually, than they are for anything, except houses.

Is it bigger than a breadbox? Does it run on solar power? Does it have a tangible form of any kind? Or is it an idea that lives in somebody's head? And, if it is an idea that lives in somebody's head, who is that somebody? Who is the person who thinks affirmative action is a good idea and has the power to see it done in American schools? > > Haim > Shovel ready? What shovel ready?
