80. Wonderful work on your part.

Thanks for taking the time to put this up here.

Can I add to other goals we need -

One - putting the brakes on the rush to privatize our educational system. The experts that are advising the public on the situation do not examine one crucial ingredient in the mix of "Why kids in other countries do better than American kids."

This important factor is the job factor - when kids whose parents include two parents with Masters' degrees or PhD's realize that all the education was for naught, as the research labs are now overseas, why should they tackle difficult subjects like math and science?

Two - the absolute need to return the jobs to the USA. I repeatedly hear that it would cost too much to bring manufacturing jobs back to the USA. However, many jobs we are losing are in the data entry field. And in the customer service ends of things.

As a taxpayer, I am astounded that the jobs available through America's private educational loan company, Sallie Mae, are now handled by third world people. How can "our" government expect people to pay off their student loans, when even the damn student loan agency is not hiring Americans?
