Scott; The issues we have with mediocrity in education are just reflecting us back to ourselves. Mediocrity is evident everywhere in our culture. We created this assembly line approach to education and now we want to blame the assembly line workers? That's like GM blaming its assembly line workers for the company losing 5 Billion a year. It's like FEMA blaming the workers handing out bottled water in New Orleans for the complete failure of their agency to mount a proper response to the disaster. Or like blaming the soldiers in Iraq for the bungling of the war. Corporate mediocrity, government mediocrity, news, television... The fish usually rots from the head. Pete
