I think I have just read the most profound paragraph I have ever read in my life. The hair is still standing up on the back of my neck as I type this.

Thanks Kevin

What checks the Court? Simple, they have no actual enforcement arm.

At least, that's how I think it works... or something.

I think I have met, in my business dealings, a doctor and an engineer who should have been teachers. They knew there stuff but didn't know how to apply it.

And I'm sure that in Poland, the cost per student is probably a tenth of what it is here in the States.
I live in a fairly affluent suburb... schools are considered quite good... school related taxes are going up constantly and are robbing residents blind.
Residents have turned themselves into walking cash registers... nearly every school budget passes because of the massive guilt-trip propaganda presented by the school boards and their friends and relatives.
They make it out like not passing the budget will sentence our kids to some sort of nightmarish, Dickensian workhouses.

Talk about a stereotype inversion: "Send you kids to Poland for a quality education!"

Indeed DJ! I'm impressed! Now, the question is do we let the left take our system long enough to wake them up like these Poles? I'm extremely impressed by their education, and their seeking of knowledge!

AH! Not to mention the knowledge they seek!
