    This Politico does a great job describing the factions in the debate. Even though I see these debates first hand, especially considering how much time I spend in the mountain west, I still can’t understand why these Beck-inspired believers don’t want their kids to learn more meaningful content and skills than they are now. Unless of course, some people don’t want students to learn how to think critically, but why would they:-)
