Correct, and yes, it would be fun. (on the List I help run, highlighting 
spelling errors by self-elected "Spelling Sherrifs" is permitted so long 
as the spelling error introduces a different angle :-) ).

More power to them (but, rather more likely, less).

They will do anything they can to appear to be doing everything they can 
"for the children" (see the federal government's reaction to the 
cracking by a kid of their heavily-funded "internet porn-filter"). 
Effectiveness is secondary, followed a long way back by responsibility. 
It's your fault you know. All you care about is the enormous wage and 
the awed respect from children and parents. Damned teachers. "Won't 
someone *please* think of the children" (gratuitous Simpsons quote).
