hewy bob, if i may say, we could get even more excellence in education if we had choice in schools. from PBS, it was said that intelligence is malleable. It can be raised with effort.The govt should desire educated people, not just a public education. yet this is fought over and over, choice in our schools which would make college more valuable and lessen the need for remedial courses.This is what i see and read in the media. Our govt is steadfast in its refusal to allow choice. Surely an educated man like yourself bob can see the validity of this argument.

Bob, i think you are getting a bit carried away here. America became great before public education. Quality education ? for what job ? the top five companies like google, facebook, etc emply half as much as general electric. general electric is more valuable to life than the internet companies.you mentioned sustainable too, Bob, sit down, get some sedatives. Private enterprise will make the world work. Big corps and even the army say they have to retrain their applicants due to poor education. get a methane digester for fredonia states power supply if it makes you feel better.sustainable, talk to Gina Mustica too. By the way, natural gas is thought to be renewable now. thats sustainable, eh Bob ?
