No "Change" in Education Policy Either: NCLB to continue

Danke to those who recognize the Ice Age inhabitants of the Neander River Valley (German Tal = English Valley) who deserve correct spelling to remind us where some of their remains were found.  Respect is in order in not comparing them to latter day administration heads who figuratively live(d) in Plato's Cave (and might have been asleep or absent from class when The Allegory was discussed at Yale.)
 
Bis bald,
Carol

Right! We anthropologists should protest the use of the noble 
neandertals as the measure of all things bad and stupid.
