    we tried that for decades.  Nothing sinks in.  

    Maybe stark consequences will make education a bit easier.

      we need enough of a mouthpiece to predict the consequences, tell people why it's coming, and then be able to trumpet WE TOLD YOU SO.

      Otherwise they're just going to shift blame for whatever ugly results to their policies come down the pike... blame the protesters, blame the Democrats, blame the unions, blame the public schools.  And they've got that many-tentacled, deep-pocketed noise machine to do it with.
