    Substance.That is the only thing that comes to the table. The word for God in Japan is; IT. In the movies. "IT", makes it or brakes it. Substance.

    I somewhat agree with John until he got to the part about the Utah lawmakers. I feel that businessmen and parents don’t necessarily have the same goals for children.

    The goal of good public schools requires that we have government that represents the people. To have government that represents the people, we must get business out of government and religion out of both.

    The proper purpose of public education would be the teaching children how to learn, analyze, test and evaluate their world. Not to indoctrinate, not to mold to their minds to a particular point of view and most certainly not to train them for a particular occupation.

    Given the proper tools of learning, educated people can enter any field, any occupation, and any philosophy. And not be hampered by the chains of prejudice, false notions and useless facts.

    The only thing a college degree gets you, is get you in the door.
