1 There's a dark little joke exchanged by educators with a dissident streak:

2 Rip Van Winkle awakens in the 21st century after a hundred-year snooze and is, of course, utterly bewildered by what he sees.

3 Men and women dash about, talking to small metal devices pinned to their ears. Young people sit at home on sofas, moving miniature athletes around on electronic screens.

4 Older folk defy death and disability with metronomes in their chests and with hips made of metal and plastic. Airports, hospitals, shopping malls-- every place Rip goes just baffles him.

5 But when he finally walks into a schoolroom, the old man knows exactly where he is. "This is a school," he declares. "We used to have these back in Only now the blackboards are white."

6 Milton-Freewater, lets have a discussion about the future of our schools…
