    Dear Ali,
    Your presentation of Iraq history had a very major mistake. Ottoman Empire ended after the First World War not the second. Ottoman Empire was on the side of Germany and Japan did not involve in this war. Ottomans fought against Britain, France , Italian and Greek forces.

    The problems with the schools will not be solved until there is competition and choice in the school system. The public school system today is not free–not only for freedom for the the parent to choose the school best for their child, but also for the teaching staff to choose the best in teaching. Principals and teachers will not buck the system as they could lose their jobs and/or bring about animosity amonst their peers. The public school system will not support freedom of choice as this would diminish the "empire" they control. Why doesn't the USA which promotes freedom, deny freedom in education? Only the weathy can afford choosing a better school through tuition. How utterly unfair!!!
