    don't think public education matters, because "there are very good private schools there."  
    That's a verbatim quote from a family member whose daughter has moved to Texas and likes it there (because people are nicer to each other in day-to-day interactions than in the Northeast or California), after I said I hoped she didn't plan to send her kids to school there because of the crazy RW theocratic textbook committee.
