Remembering When We Were Children

The past allows us to see what we did when we were younger.  Riding our bicycles to the other side of town, trying to see who could make it to the park the fastest.  Playing H-O-R-S-E on the hoop with no net and yes sometimes it was the free throw that won the game.  Lighting the stove with a match to turn it on, so that we could help cook the breakfast.  In the 1980s, when Ross Perot was head of the Select Committee on Public Education, the major "No Pass, No Play" entered the great State of Texas from a Republican billionaire who had his children in private school.  Then the testing of the students began followed by testing the teachers.  This was meant to make Texas' education system better.  What happened?
