      which given the nature of these interactions you could be I am pretty sure you would lose.

      But please keep thinking yourself smugly surperior, it's a common quality I've noticed among a certain small subset of posters here.

        You're the one who condescendingly asked if any of us had taken any History classes. My undergraduate major was history and my Masters was also in that subject with the focus on Latin America.

        My knowledge of history is sound and my knowledge of LA History is better than most. I also am rather well versed on the subject of education and so-called education reform.

        There are other subjects in which I have a general knowledge and interest, but where I will readily concede my lack of expertise.

          I long ago reached the maturity needed to not have to have a pissing contest with a random person on the internet.

          You have demonstrated no actual factual gaps in what I have presented and as such all you are doing is yapping

            your comments.

            Whatever.

            I've already wasted too much time responding to you.

            Enjoy the rest of your day.
