COMMENTS:
Mr. Guthrie sounds like just another educrat who doesn't understand why in the 1960's our students went on to put men on the moon, while now - after decades of education colleges running the show - most graduates are morons. As for the cost of education, the first thing done should be to fire fully 90% of those who don't teach, for they are just useless parasites.
