I assert that you HAVE claimed (either in so many words or by implication) that there is a gigantic conspiracy by the 'Education Mafia' to damage US public school education (obviously for their own evil purposes). I am not about to search your postings to point you there. I ALSO assert that I know full well the plain (and/or any other meaning) of my words.
