 Margaret Crocco said, "We are writing to assure you that this project has no goal other than to promote open, honest and constructive educational dialogue among students of all political views about a wide variety of issues. In fact, many of the lessons included in the curriculum focus on the very issues he predicted would be missing from our work -- including engineering, local government responsibility and emergency evacuation plans."   This article appeared in the February 7, 2007 edition of the Pittsburgh Tribune Review. http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pittsburghtrib/opinion/letters/send/s_492018.html
