Zanesville Times Recorder

Driving down the street the other day, I was listening to a radio host's editorial on the state of the nation with regard to education. His words echoed those heard from teacher's lounges, college classrooms and a variety of educational arenas across the nation. He complained about the lack of support from the community, the low funding base, test scores and accountability. As I listened, I passed a billboard advertising Nike athletics and another promoting the FOX network. It occurred to me I could drive to the ends of the Earth and probably never see one for anything even remotely associated with education.
