    you have your list of "successful outcomes".

    i have mine. (you'll note that i did say "meet my minimum criteria".)

    we disagree. you are free to advocate for a system of education that produces a mass of woefully ignorant "critical thinkers". what exactly you suppose they will spend their time thinking critically about, i do not know, but if you are going to teach them that knowing such simple truths as the pythagorean theorem is a matter beneath their wise concern, i expect you will discover they spend their time thinking critically about whether Britney should receive joint custody, or merely visitation rights, or whether Cherry Garcia is better than Cookie Dough, because even though they don't particularly care for cherries, they like the Dead, and even if they didn't, "Cherry Garcia" is a clever name, which amplifies the pleasure they get from consuming that particular flavor. like, y'know.

    i also suggest that your unconcern with mere knowledge is emblematic of the leftist attitude that the right has been using as a target for 40 years to slowly bludgeon the public school system out of existence.

    and take your condescension and cram it. you fancy yourself the owner of privileged wisdom, dismissing my opinion with an ad hominem attack based on nothing but some bogus stereotype of me that you have constructed out of your own prejudices and convenient untruths. what irony, that you should conclude your little lecture with such a stark example of weak thinking undergirded by a smug and illfounded appeal to expertise.

    I am further of the opinion that the President must be impeached and removed from office!
