Except that you are more the optimist than I if you sense that this is the
general direction in which change will in fact take us.  

At least as to mainstream education. 

I guess more and more actual education will be happening off-line from the
mainstream.  As is already happening, one senses.  In that sense, I allow
myself to be an optimist. 

But mourn a bit the loss of a more defensible mainstream.  There is much
crap out on the fringes, and I do hesitate to send kids out there

Best I can articulate the dilemma I see.
