It will probably come as a shock to those who know me, but I have some strong opinions about educational matters. Very strong. Violent and unswerving prejudices, some would say. And since I will regularly be using this forum to subject you to whatever is on my mind, I thought it would be only fair to run through these opinions for you. You may then feel free to dismiss things I say in future columns on the grounds of my admitted bias. (However, anything I say about a topic not on the list may be considered absolute truth.)

Ready? Here goes, beginning with the most violent and unswerving prejudice of them all.

Help me out--what else should be on the list? The best entry wins a free drink at the next Exxon Suite.
