If there were blogs when you were in middle school and high school would the teachers have said the same thing about our generation?

A Philly teacher wrote about her students being

'rude, disengaged, lazy whiners'

Interesting tidbit to note from

http://law2.umkc.edu/faculty/projects/ftrials/states/USCHARTsat.html

Ranking of SAT/ACT scores for students from states where collective bargaining with teachers is illegal:

South Carolina =50th
North Carolina =49th
Georgia =48th
Texas = 47th
Florida = 45 th

Wisconsin is #2 and Unionized.

Astonishing to me is Virginia is 44th. I thought they had fairly wealthy districts with very high test scores, so is collective bargaining more telling?
