    You're not going to get a fair and balanced assessment from the WSJ. Wall Street wants public education to go away so that they can get a bit more profits from for-profit education.

    As for a group, I think it's a good idea. There are already 21 groups listed as related to "education". There is an "Education Alternatives" group, which has numerous entries, a "Teachers Lounge" and "Educating and Learning". I can't vouch for any of these because I'm not a regular on the topic. Perhaps there should be one specifically for supporting public education, and maybe even one for pre-school and kindergarten.

    But back on OLPC: enhanced cognitive skills seems like a sufficient justification for expanding that program. It sure beats firing teachers as a solution.
