    Interesting. I teach in a public school and send my kids to Catholic school. Many of my colleagues do as well. In fact only 60 percent of the my kids school is even Catholic. Yes we know all the dirty little secrets about social promotion and fudging of grades. And most of us have been issued a gag order.I have a few ideas about what needs to be done, but it might be too late.

    I had an aunt and uncle that were both public school teachers, they sent my cousins to private school, that was 30+ years ago. Things haven't changed.
