The problem with K-12 education is socialism and the solution is capitalism.
I think we spend too much on K-12 education a.k.a. teachers' salaries. It's the only industry where you never see any productivity increases.
If you're going to have a public subsidy to education, vouchers are clearly a better way of delivering it. They should result in some loosening up and privatization of the government school system.
Teacher unions are an interest group that acts in defense of their own interests, which means the union bosses' interests, not the members.
I think good teachers are underpaid.
A nation is an organic thing.
Hey, nothing grows to the sky. There will be a successor movement. Right now it's nascent.
I think Bush has capitulated on affirmative action and government spending. Apart from that, he's OK, I guess. About the same as Howard Dean.
Immigration enthusiasts are so hysterical.
Textbook publishers don't even bother to advertise at their conventions.
I regard many of the neoconservatives as personal friends, but that's not stopped them from behaving with extraordinary viciousness towards those of us who raised the immigration issue.

I think Bush's immigration proposal is treason and he should be impeached.
I think the Iraq War is not particularly tailored to American interests.
