Here are pictures.
Unfortunately, I had to resign now that I've cut my hair!

I used to have a link to a list of interesting web sites here. But
that's so 1990's, don't you think? (Besides, I couldn't keep it up
Why school standards are declining
From a Massachusetts teacher's newsletter, 1924:
Only 10 out of every 1,000 American boys are graduated
from college. Of every 1,000 boys in first grade, 970 go on to the
second grade, 940 remain through the third grade, 905 the fourth
grade, 830 the fifth grade, 735 the sixth grade, 630 the seventh
grade, and 490 the eighth grade. Of the original 1,000, only 230
enter the high school, 170 finish the second year, 120 the third
year, and 95 are graduated from the high school. Fifty men enter
college, 40 keep on to the end of the second year, 20 to the end
of the junior year, and 10 are graduated.
No wonder the ones who made it through could meet higher standards!
