Time out from your brackets 

A friend of mine wondered this morning, how many hours or work America loses today while people fill out their NCAA brackets. I bet it's many millions of dollars of lost output. But a good investment would be this story about a charter school that worked wonders. Imagine: A school that could have a basketball championship and letters of acceptance for 19 of 24 of its seniors in the same display case, at a school where less than ten percent of the students are white.

Yeah, charter schools don't know anything about education. None of them should ever write academic standards.
