On the public education front what we are seeing really is an acceleration of the federalization of public education. What we have had in the past year is an avalanche of legislation coming out of the Congress that is really federalizing public education. The local control is being stripped away with laws like Goals 2000, HR 6, et cetera. You have the government really taking over, the federal government taking over public education.
