First ones involved would probably be the EPA !
The Jewish experience in America has a few salient points:

- The Jewish immigrants were lucky enough to catch the big-city public schools at their peak of quality.

- The old-fashioned "learning-by-rote" method, now heavily discredited, did in fact have a lot going for it.

- We were lucky enough to be able to "organize" ourselves, rather than the current method of depending on outside sources to step in to "organize" us.

- In life, as in surgery, knowing what to cut away and what to leave can be trickey; it is entirely too easy to cut too deep.
