    I did not ask you to know what I think, that would be impossible. However, you being an educator and having an IQ that is high, I would assume it easy to draw conclusions and form an opinion based on the knowledge of the subject matter and what the article claims. If it is difficult for you, no problem. That is what I expect from people that cannot think outside the box even when they are as intelligent as you.

    I sincerely want to see how you think and perceive things without influence from my perspective that may be right or wrong.

    No, I do not presume to think what goes on in that head of yours. I do not know what you think their objectives are. That is why I asked what you think their objectives are.

    You are the one challenging their objectives. In cards, you've been "called", it is now your turn to lay down your cards.

    I intentionally left off what I think... many people like yourself insist they know what I will write before I write it.

    Use your imagination Mr Tillett. What do you think I think?... and... do you think their objectives are actually as stated?

    Ok, I'll bite. What do YOU think their objectives are?

    Article stated...The objectives of the project are to improve teacher and principal effectiveness to improve student achievement, graduation rates and college readiness.

    If anyone actually believes that the "real" objective is as stated, I have some real estate deals on Mars just for you... [lol][innocent][whistling] LOL
