    In the original posting I refer to a prior week's email with URLs. Here is the specific set of URLs that I reference:

    Ted: With all the brilliant minds and the hours that are expended in rhetoric, debate and scientific publications, I am a bit nonplussed that we still do not have a cohesive strategy as the premise for educating our children. While I am far removed from our own children’s elementary and high school education by many years (sorry children), I still do not see any “light”. From my readings, it appears that the solution today is a series of one-offs: charter schools, AltSchool (, etc. leaving the masses of children in the original morass.
