I would gladly hold a contest pitting any 10 American Army soldiers, randomly selected, against any 10 public school teachers on a standardized test.Are you kidding? The randomly selected public school teachers would have a hard time finding the the right side of the paper.
I'd bet even money on the soldiers against 10 randomly selected Ivy League humanities professors.
(Note: I said humanities. The GI's might have a harder time beating science profs, but I think they'd still make a contest of it.)
"randomly selected public school teachers"
Oh, so we go from not bashing the troops to bashing the teachers who taught those troops. Typical.
