    Well, Spike, leave us hanging why dont you? [Spike writing here]. The issue is huge. But it should be obvious that there would have to be quite a bit that school, parents, kids and teacher put together to have the classroom for 6 hrs per day enterprise would be successful.
    What would successful be? Each child acquiring levels of comprehension, competence, compassion and self-respect that s/he did not have before. I trust that you agree ;o]
