HI Chris,

I suggest you focus on what NCLB is focusing: reading, mathematic and
science. The problem is neither reading nor mathematic teachers have traditionally
been heavy video users. This very well may be a problem of treatment. I don't
want a talking head with a blackboard doing the same thing a teacher can do.

Regarding mathematics in Iowa, the state is pushing "problems" which can be
solved in a variety of ways. Almost, using science situations to teach
mathematics. For example, two different pulleys are connect by a belt. What is the
ratio between the turns of the larger pulley to the smaller pulley?
