And you thought education was in trouble!

Almost daily, in newspapers and websites across the country, there is evidence that education is not in as bad shape as we're often led to believe: I refer to the daily flood of letters to editors and blog entries decrying global climate change (most say "global warming") as a lot of hooey— and offering carefully reasoned refutations.

Clearly, our education system is turning out advanced climatologists in record numbers! If that's true, concerns over dismal national science and math education results are entirely unfounded. Climate science is math- and science-heavy stuff, so our education system must be doing something right!

As an example, here's a letter to the editor of my local paper, proving that great minds surround us. Stand down the alert! We're fine!
