I look forward to new census results. It's amazing what one can learn by looking at the data.I've charted some interesting census education data at: http://www.supportingevidence.com/Education/Education_landing.htmlLook at high school graduation rates from 1940 and 2006. Glad I didn't go to school in 1960; I'd only be 50% likely to have 4 years of high school education (I'm white). I see dramatic improvement for black high school education, but not so great for hispanics.Also, check out SAT scores vs. state education funding. No guarantee of high achievement if you spend a lot on education. Hmmm...There are some international comparisons as well. Our test scores sure don't correspond to how much we invest in education.I think we need to re-look at how we teach the next generation.Scott Gibsonwww.supportingevidence.com'worth a thousand words'
