<< The failure of schools to teach all students to write up to
a standard measure is, indeed, sad. However, let's not forget
who these schools are teaching - the public schools must include
the learning disabled, the poor, and the immigrants, all of whom
have much to overcome in achieving even basic skills. >>

I wonder why it is the opinion of so many people that *all* children should
be held to the lowest level in order to include everyone....

Yeah, some people have more issues with learning than others. But, if they
want to learn something and have people who will help them, chances are they
will learn...
