I don't disagree with the notion that we are turning the educational system here into a farm team for what used to be called the military-industrial complex. Indeed, from what I see of the kids coming to my school from their high school educations, a great objective of secondary education seems to be to turn out humans who are compliant widgets, absolutely dependent on directions that spell out every step of what they do. My job, up to this point, has been to undo that training. However, the NCLB agenda is reaching deep into the colleges as well. Up to this point, again, we've managed to finesse that stuff. I have a feeling we'll have to comply with the Borg pretty soon, though.
