About four years ago I was in Los Angeles and I saw the below picture on the front page of the LA times. It was a story of Mayor Villaraigosa of Los Angeles visiting New York City and discussing the school situation and seeing how it was working.

Well from what you read and hear the schools are failing everywhere and it is among the big problems the country faces. When I interviewed Jacques Barzun, the famous historian, he said it was far and away the greatest problem facing the 21st Century.

But this picture gives some real hope. That little guy in the middle gets it! So he is now about 12 or 13, I wonder how he is doing, probably better than either of the mayors!
