    Unless you're Chicano in Arizona and don't speak English.

    I see East Asians and Eurasians, but no morenos. The girl in purple might be Latina but I think she's probably Asian.

    Exactly. They don't have programs like this in many non-white neighborhoods...and this program looks like an excellent one, especially for making money and getting girls into engineering where they are underrepresented.

    The non-whites get pulled out of classes related to math and science in Arizona for example.

    aren't you connected to the teaching establishment in California?

    the New Jersey people thought of it first and you're blaming them for being white?

    maybe if you raised the public service retirement age in California you'd have some money to educate the ninos with.

    What does race have to do with anything in that story? It is a good thing
    that engineering is being taught that young to kids.

    OK, I'll stop ranting.

    Yes, I agree. This is a FANTASTIC idea. Good job New Jersey!
