Yes, Jimscott, PR has a lot of issues that need to be solved, as well as the Congress to get a conclussion to this matter, whether statehood, independences or keep on with the same actual system, but here are the real options.
To keep with the same actual system is not an option, it is getting old and obsolet, it does not function anymore. Independence is something that only a small group wants here( less than 4% of the population), and obviously the only natural and reasonable option is statehood, for both, PR and the Congress, which will be the one that will have the last word, I mean the Congress.
And I guess the end of all this matter will come before these next 4 years. So after 107 years of this same issue, it will get a conclussion real soon.
So, we will ahve to wait a little more.
ah so i see im confused, nothing unusual about that. maybe my confution about the Department of Education came in from something else? i wonder if PR schools arent held to the same standards as US schools as far as the US Gov't is concerned? did the No Child Left Behind Act affect PR schools? i think last i saw the literacy rate in PR was far lower than the states but IIRC we were talking about this in a history class or something which would make the data im thinking of 10 years old give or take a few years. thanks for the info. i hadnt actually thought about this in awhile. nice to update my facts.
