what many believe education in the United States has lacked for too long: a common denominator.

When GWB was in office, he was slammed continually for wanting to impose national standards on schools, which he never supported. Whether or not it is a good idea is debatable. It is strange, however, that it is happening now with very little complaint. Everything is "but, that's different."

I have heard several math teachers in my district blast W for the No child Left Behind Act. None of them knew that W only signed it - Kennedy wrote it.

I am glad to see TX is on the list of those not participating.
