John from Chelsea
While we're falling behind, the solution is simple, abolish AEA at the national level. Turn education back over to the state and the local people. Get the federal government out of it.

Sharon from Fultondale
I feel like that teachers and principals should pay more attention to the children that are not in programs such as on the football team, cheerleaders or band. The ones that are expendable, the do not count in their numbers as far as they are concerned.

I enjoy your editorials but you "overlooked" a major problem with our elementary educational system, unionization (AEA;NEA-are unions !). I have no doubt that you are more knowledgeable in regard to the substandard effects than I,
so I will not go into details. In my opinion, education is as, if not more, important than healthcare. Currently, physician unions are illegal (collective bargaining) and again, in my opinion , we are all better off for that.(Obamacare may change my mind).
