Sara is correct because

How do you compare a child who lives in the Y-K delta and speaks Y’upik (as a primary language) to a ghetto rat from Liberty City FL? Short answer - you can't. Period. Dot.

There is no National Education Standard that can be written that can cover such a vast differences in culture, ethnicity and regional (dialect, associations, etc, etc) - it's pipe dream of control freaks.

National literacy standards, yes. Minimum math skills, maybe. There is no universal solvent.

They are control freaks. And they are getting what they want.

I agree with Governor Palin on this.
