538 and the Electoral College

About four years Nate Silver, who has a book coming out soon, started blogging on his new site appropriately titled 538.  He became the first person to use statistics to predict the electoral college and in the process create a great site.  Now he blogs for the NYTimes and has started his electoral analysis for the fall.  As we get closer to the election, you might want to come back to the site - a lot.

By the way I started this (and the other two blogs) to be able to spread content and digital wealth so really appreciate your e-mails.  Just two days ago I received one from Charlie Ostlund who taught me Current Events in 1981-92 which is as close as I got to government back in high school.  Charlie, after a career in admin, is now back in the classroom.

People have been focused on the negative aspect of government reforms to better the school systems in the United States. The government has been heavily criticized for practicing bias in the school systems toward African Americans and Hispanics. History has shown that the government is trying very hard to better the school systems through implementing reforms and alternative funds to help better the school system in every subject.
