        I don't know how I was added to this net, but it seems to be a
worthwhile one. It might be from my attempt to get onto an educational net
over a year ago. 
       Despite my discouraging experiences in voluntary teaching, I'm still
interested in seeing our education system improve, and I strongly believe
that our teachers are NOT the problem, but are the ones being hurt the most
by the situation. I ran for a seat on our local school board on the basic
platform of a strong alternative school system for disruptive disrespectful
students, and placed last in a six candidate race for one seat
        . My experience as an instructor in economics and aeordynamics
in a small college showed me how much fun eaching can be with a receptive
respectful audience. We should expect  NO -DEMAND  that kind of environment
for all of our teachers.
