Your vision offers hope and possibilities in this complex, critical challenge. Your comparison of education with the Mayo Clinic and health care is insightful and spot on. I'm forwarding this to my friends in health care and education.

Thanks Laura. I'm reminded of the fact that at the federal level for many years (1953-79)the functions of health and education and welfare were combined in a single department with that name (HEW). And Republican Gov. Arne Carlson was thinking integration and comprehensive in the 1990s, I think, with a more coordinated approach to education and human services, and a combined Minnesota Department of Children, Families and Learning.
