As we sit and watch the protest taking place in Wisconsin with the teacher's union, it brings back Education to the forefront of the national conversation. So the question is what is wrong with Public Education and why when budget cuts have to be made education is always the first to be cut? If this country is so serious about education why are we always cutting it?

Is public education the route our country should continue to pursue? Many other countries have to pay for primary and secondary education. Is this route that we as a country should be pursuing?

Finally, I want to say congratulations to the young men of Urban Prep in Chicago for getting 100% of their senior class committed to four year colleges for the second year in a row. Maybe their blueprint is one we should apply to our public schools. What do you say?
