It appears that the decision to change the phraseology had not actually been made, but it was under serious consideration:http://www.woodtv.com/Global/story.asp?S=4955971It is not at all clear whether school superintendant Michael Flanagan's statement that the change "never would have happened on his watch" was really his original position, or a furious backpedal after their trial balloon went down in screaming flames.As for impugning the education system of your state, all I ever said (or implied) was that they were wasting time on this issue when they probably have more pressing concerns. I stand by that assessment, though I will note that Michigan is hardly unique in this regard.
