Et tu, Lou? So, you are really not sure what "The Education Mafia" means? Really? I'd bet you are pretty sure what your socialists friends mean when they talk about "Big Oil", or "Wall Street", or "Banksters" (a portmanteau of "banker" and "ganster"), or "capitalists", or "petty bourgoisie". How about "The 1%" and "The 99%"? No problem there, eh? But, somehow you just can't wrap your brain around the idea of "The Education Mafia". Gosh, Lou, I wonder who has more explaining to do.

And you aim to keep it that way, because a true solution for what ails American public education will not be kind to The Education Mafia.
