There May Not Be Many Of The Public Left In Public Schools 

On the first day of school in Washington D.C. Sam Dillon reports in the New York Times that both older and younger teachers are getting out of the field. And Susan Goodkin and David Gold write today in the Washington Post that academically advanced children are running out of public schools to avoid the mediocrity of standards under NCLB. (Loyal readers know that I've already reported on this phenomenon. See this excellent article on "bubble kids" by Jennifer Booher-Jennings.)

We've created a mess.
