I am a collector of Ancient coins and American coins. The following appeared in a post on a chat list today -
"... My wife works for a public elementary school, and a couple of years ago they were doing someting about Presidents on coins. Most of the teachers at her school thought that was Washington on the nickel!
This reminded me of a mother in my daughter's Montessori school who was a Public School "science teacher" in the Boston public school system. She complained that "I have to teach the solar system tomorrow and I don't know anything about it. I'll be up all night studying for it."
I made the mistake of sending my son to Massachusetts Public Schools and he turned into a knee jerk Democrat. That will never happen with my daughter.
