While I shudder at the thought of Bb in the lower grades, it has been  
adopted by districts at the middle and high school level.

"Cost" of course is really an issue of institutional structures ... a  
statewide implementation, hosted by VSC, for example, might have  
several advantages curriculum wise over the "every tub on it's own  
bottom" model we're used to ..
