    As if the average American infotainment consumer hasn't been dumbed down enough, let's start 'em even earlier! :rolleyes:

    I wonder how many of the teachers in his target market are union? :lol:

    Certainly taking an all inclusive approach to finding ways to use both the internet and computer techology in education is a good idea.

    Haven't had to to evaluate their products "Burst Reading" or Mclass, yet.

    But this approach, or something like it, is inevitable.

    I'm trying to picture the banner headline in the Daily News and can't. How do you spin the ultimate irony in 4 words or less on a second grade reading level, preferably with a double entendre thrown in? I must need more coffee....

    This is only partly about learning or students, it is more about administrative work and communicating with parents. My wife's school uses Fastdirect which makes a few tasks easier and presents a common site for homework etc, but it hardly changes the dynamics of learning when parents and children are not interested. It is funny listening to my wife tell a parent something has been posted for several days, but still the parent is asleep. Kinda funny how large corporations can make tons of money contributing trifles. imho America loves measuring and polling, when will the time come when they learn working hard and participating.

    Is this software an anti-capatalist diatribe like the Story of Stuff?...I'll take Fox and their anti-socialist/communist programming any day of the week over globalist elitism like we get from CNN/NBC/ABC.
