"What do elite private school owe the public?" is a good read. The entire article poses important questions. Hopefully Obama and his friends who attended and send their children to elite private schools will read it.

In the article on wage increases for non-union employees, Knudsen states: ""I think reasonable people understand that you have to have qualified people to run an activity of this size; qualified people are not readily available in the market place for many of these activities," Knudsen said." So, Knudsen, you don't have to have "quality people" in the schools teaching students? Teachers salaries can be slashed and benefits decimated because we don't have to be "quality people" like the paper pushers at 440?
