    Unless otherwise indicated, you can assume the educators approached for quotes are pro-establishment.

    Also interesting to me, that the numbers getting the question “right” vs. “wrong” roughly mirror the vote in the last DC elections...

    How many didn't answer the question and how many said neither good or bad and how many said Japan and failed to justify it? How many said Japan and had a good argument?
