...again, you are correct. My point: NCLB is alienating the community by making education results much broader. That time you speak of is no longer available. Granted, I'm speaking of education in general, and not specifically "theater" but IMR brought up WWII history so perhaps I am leaning more in that direction.

The "community" goings-on which you address are more apt to occur outside the typical school, using the physical components (the actual stage) which a school offers to the community.

...at no point did I say our educational system is a failure. What I said is that all this adds up to a HUGE problem. Which it is. I agree theater (even...especially, at a secondary level) is one way to "teach" many aspects of our history, heritage, as well as wanted changes, denied desires, prejudices, AND warts.
