Just my hunch that you'd find a correlation between the arrival of the teachers union and the drop in world rankings of our kids
Or an even greater correlation between the rise in the divorce rate in this country and single parent homes.
Pretty sure the correlation between divorce rate and single parent homes would be pretty high. Silly teachers.
