It is incredibly important to measure, because without measuring, how do you know if a child is learning to read and write and add and subtract? How do you know? It seems like it's a fundamentally fair question for those of us in public life to ask. We're spending money, we'd like to know in return whether or not children are learning.<p><hr></blockquote><p><a href="http://www.whitehouse.gov/kids/connection/20010220-4.html">www.whitehouse.gov/kids/connection/20010220-4.html</a><br><br>as it pertains to iraq:<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p> David M.

Well "surprise ! surprise ! surprise ! "<br><br>What we may see is that by GWBsuh creating the gashing wound in Iraq back in 2003, the whole area disintegrates into total chaos and war pulling in Iran, Syria, and Israel. I distinctly remember in the dialogue and discussions leading up to March 2003 that many (incl myself) said that if Iraq was destabilized and the sectarian hatred between the Kurds, Shiites, and Sunnis not tightly controlled that the situation could degenerate into a civil war that could destbilize the whole region. <br><br>Well Isn't THAT exactly what Bush's fsck-up has led to ?<br>Get ready for $5.00 gasoline soon. Also if this doesn't stop soon and cooler heads prevail, our economy is going in the tank... last weeks' 3% loss in the stockmarket will be just a taste of worse things to follow.<br><br>You have to be a real "Bush-bot" not to be fed up with their continual failures both foreign and domestic.<br><br>BTW - 11 schools in our Gwinnett School system are on the "endangered" list- we have one of the better school system in Ga and the largest (180,000 students). While I don't eliminate responsibility of the teachers and managers, they have limited control over their resources, and the studnets they are "given". (Note: private schools get to "select" their students so tehy get teh "cream of the crop"; public schools are given all others to educate, some good, but many have serious problems both academically and socially.)<br><br>David (OFI)<br>
