Its sparse, cement-floor office in a San Marcos mall houses a handful of office equipment, two bulletin boards and a digital clock radio that still blinked "12:00" the other day. And like all campaigns, it has its visionary: Stephen Guffanti.

The solution is competition: If forced to compete with private schools, they argue, public schools will have to improve.
