Is a special ed degree more valuable than other ed degrees? I am certified in childhood ed and I am planning to get my masters in special education. A main factor for this was because many teaching professionals tell me that a special education certification will be more valuable than say a literacy degree when looking for a job. I know certification areas are important, but will it really affect me getting a job if I'm not special ed certified?

Should free education and medical care be an entitlement to all Americans? Wouldn't it be a better investment of our taxes if the government paid for free education for everyone for as high as they could go. More people who were held back only because of money could become doctors, scientists, leaders and educators. Everyone would be better educated and happier. The trickle down would be that professionals would start their careers free of student loans and therefore wouldn't have to charge so much for their services. With more doctors, free medical services would be possible without all those long lines. Free medical service would mean better preventive measures and less ailments as we age - a considerable savings. What do you think of this and if you like it, how could we get it started?

If socialism is so bad, why do certain socialist countries (Germany, Norway,Sweden) consistantly rank so high? ...in many criteria that seem important.
Human Development (aka: life expectancy, education and standards of living)
Infant Mortality Rate
This is a general cut-n-paste list I picked up here, feel free to add to it if you want, and pass it along... I'm sure there's more telling lists out there. Anyways, why all the blind conformist fear over socialism?
