It's obvious you don't know enough about enough to do your children any good.
Or so says the NEA in this column on their web site. Yes, I know the disclaimer says that it may not represent the views of the NEA, but it *is* posted on their web site. I wonder, will they post any of my articles on their web site? I didn't think so, either.
