    An appointed school board has made little difference in Cleveland, Ohio. Hacks can be elected or appointed. (We don't have issues with ideological homeschoolers — just with corporate "reformers").

    Take the "Can't(or)" out of Congress. Support E. Wayne Powell in Va-07. http://www.ewaynepowell.com/

      is a bad stereotype and I should not have bit on it. The point I wished to make is that if someone is against public education then they should not be voted onto the school board.

      The corporate interests are the most dangerous. Cut public school funding then the better off families are upset that their children are in classes with 30 or more students. Then a "charter" or for-profit school is suddenly proclaiming their superior product. I find this for-profit model to be nothing less than evil.

      This better be good. Because it is not going away.
