    Exclusionary elitist enclaves for "feel good" clubbiness? Why am I not surprised.

          I see his or her assertion that schools are accountable to teach basic skills and knowledge and that this has not been happening in significant numbers of schools in the United States.

          If you think ban nock is incorrect about that assertion, I respect you for having a different view, but I completely agree with him or her that the teaching of basic skills and knowledge is a fair expectation.

            I am somehow not. I am, however, steadfast against shuffling the preponderance of resources in America to those elites or pressure groups who demand more resources because of their gifts, connections, verbal ablility or sense of entitlement. That is the most Undemocratic idea in education since Plessy v Fergussen enthroned segregation. I was responding to that, Linda, not the assertion that education should not be immune from accountability.

            If you want to talk about accountability, let's go.
