Nobody knows how to struggle through the mandates.  They weren't created by educators.  They're enforced in complete ignorance of what it means to learn -- nobody learns "subskills" for their own sake.

It's like PK implied: all mandates have a "don't get caught" clause, esp. for Catholics.

Spread this paper around, E.

The Texas system is the system that is everywhere now.  They've just had it longer in Texas, that's all.

Don't forget to organize the parents -- they're less likely than any of the other participants in the system to be bribed into inaction.
