Actually, I think it would be an interesting thread. NTM, it sounds like you have a clear picture in your own head of "how things ought to be". I think it would be interesting if a thread were started that laid out all the details very clearly, including facility ownership, teacher training, business models, expectations of students, marketing, competitions, levels of student achievement, etc., etc. -- and then the ensuing discussion worked out how and whether it might be possible to get from "the world as it exists today" to "the world as you envision it. I think it would ease frustration on all sides if that conversation were separate from existing ones.
