Dear xmca-ers-


Searching carefully the website that Bill referred I found the news about US
scientists signing a letter of the protest of Bush administration's misuse
and abuse of the (ecological) science. You can find the news at


I wish educational researchers (including myself) were as organized as the
ecological scientists.



PS David, I agree that it is troubling to learn about US matters solely from
BBC. Although being raised in the USSR, it is not new for me. :-(

It's great that the scientific community is standing up to this dangerous
administration. Too bad the leadership of educational research (e.g., AERA)
was unable to become involved in the coalition of dissent based on the
Administration's tampering with our research infrastructure through
dismantling of the ERIC system. Also, kind of odd that we're getting US news
from the BBC.
