yeah, Cee. the same thing occurred to me.
on the surface it looks like good news. but - if the one dissenting survey is accurate - it is anything but good news - because it means that the truth is somehow either being missed or hidden or getting lost somewhere.
and the one survey that showed little to no change was the one where they were apparently asking the kids directly. that seems pretty significant to me. forget what the number-crunchers say - LISTEN TO THE VICTIMS! i wouldn't want to be considered an insignificant fraction of a decimal percentage point!
