I just watched the C-Span interview. I agree with you. Congratulations for presenting a very clear informative explanation. **Your concepts were shown as the interviewer could not even read her notes and could not even say the words she was reading. She was the poster child for the dumbing down of American .** C-Span has turned into a liberal-UN-progressive entity .Thanks for your professionalism and your ability to refrain from the race baiting and from the advocates of social justice. The BEST show on C-Span for years…I bet they do not replay it at any prime time, if ever! Roger L. Vail

You can catch the video re-play on the C-Span website. I can confirm his premises based on my view from the “front lines” in California, our local Supe of schools here in one of the poorest counties in the state was harassed by a shouting mob just for proposing a small STEM program separate from the rest of the high schools. (They already have to have 4 sites just for the expelled teen gangsters, 2 of the sites just to keep the Norteno and Sureno factions apart). The mob demanded that ALL of the increased funds made available from the recent income tax boost be spend ONLY on their designated groups (language learners and underachievers). The mob was rustled up by a local “community action” organization which turns out to be funded by a far-left octopus called the “California Endowment” which has a $3 billion base to operate of off. This thing is very hard to find anything about and your mag might want to look into it for a future story.
