"If her students learn too quickly, she is deemed out of compliance. If she takes time to explain, she is deemed out of compliance. If she is far enough out of compliance, she is deemed substandard."
A moving piece on the problems of teaching in America's state school system.
The comments are worth reading for some convincing (to me, anyway) arguments against school voucher systems.

Someone's got Linux running on the newer WRT54Gs (the ones that ship with VxWorks and have less memory).
I'm not entirely convinced about "Brainslayer has once again gone and done the unthinkable", though, since it's been on my possible-ideas list for a while. ;)
What I was more curious about was whether it'd be more sensible to port a uCLinux kernel to the hardware, since you probably don't need most of the fancy memory-management stuff on a machine that small.
That'd give you more room for interesting userspace too -- not that a router really needs that much anyway (bridging, iptables, some configuration interface).
