1stPlace: Looks like they don't have a clue in Texas as to true cost. Check this one out:http://www.schoolfunding.info/state...costingout.php3
With add ons to the base, can exceed $11,000.00 for high school.
And when they graduate, and cannot read or write or reason.

Yeah... The cost of education is ubsurd. In 2001 the Cleveland school system was only passing about 50% on proficiency tests. They brought in Barbara Byrd Bennett at $300,000.00 a year to improve the schools. She was supposed to be the "savior". She lives a very lavish jet setting life style. Years later, we know how she does it!
In her defense, before she resigned, the proficiency tests are now about 62% passing

oh, and why are primary schools so piss poor? ....lack of funding....
Then explain how DC is third in spending behind New York and New Jersey and they have the highest drop out rate in the country. It doesnt take money it takes focus. Teachers who care about kids and parents who care and take an interest in their kids education.
Chris: What really pisses me off with this school stuff is the fact that we are spending more money per student, and they are being taught by teachers that just should not be there.
Exactly, whether its intentional or just incompetence the DoE and teachers unions are killing our system and we are failing our kids. And no child left behind is going to make that worse just as in your example. You bring everyone down the middle and get the bottom as high as you can and statistically it looks great but we are doing our country a great disservice.

A perfect example of what I was eluding to earlier is my little girl. She had a K teacher that believed that every child in her class should be a competent reader by the time they graduated to the first grade. My daughter was a good reader and she still at one point had her with a reading tutor for s short time. This in a school system that by policy doesn't believe that kindergartners can learn to read. She is starting the fifth grade this year and at the end of last school year tested on a 10th grade reading and 8th grade math level. And I firmly believe that it is due in large part to her reading at an early age.

Need the competition factor back in the classroom. As 5th graders, we used to strive to be the best. Today, seems the kids just really don't care. and teachers are worse.
No one in my schooling days wanted to be known as a dumba$$. Made a big difference on the test paper.

Yep, a little teasing or shame made a better person out of you. Now most kids will go out of their way not to stand out. Unless its to show off their boxers "There is a fine line between cutting edge and bleeding edge.."

Helo... i know what you mean, when i was five yrs. old i was spelling Dictionary, where as nowadays i couldn't find a fifth grader to do that,most schools don't want to teach your children, they want to force feed them drugs(ritalin) to keep them quiet and submissive then just pass them for being present, (got a neighbor with a kid in that state of mind) been trying to convince the parents they are screwing him up but , i think they are screwed up too! for believing the tripe the schools and the govt. has been feeding themSmile! people will wonder what you're up to!!

LOL, speaking of impeachment...I just got back from a real estate investment seminar in Phoenix. (Agents and investors from every part of the country were there) A top tax attorney was speaking about the tax code and new changes in the future when she said "in 2008 we will have a new president"

...75% of the 500 people there (cut her off mid-sentence) applauded and cheered...many even stood up and cheered the fact that we would soon be rid of this clown...

My Dad's got a bumper sticker that says "at least Clinton knew when to pull out"...

It's funny to me that there are people that are actually still holding on to their naive little vision of conservatism. Do you honestly think you are the majority? Do you honestly think that there will be another republican president? The only republican that I can see who might actually do a good job is Ron Paul, But the majority of conservatives are too stupid to back him. Other than that Hillary is going to win (not saying she's a good choice). but the majority of people are sick of Bush's BS and will not elect another republican.

We need to keep discussing him, right up to election day. Just might make it work. Kinda funny how the real Americans are ignored, in favor of the criminals , with the big bucks, and nothing really to say, except , status quo.
American memories are very short. Look at Clintons years in the white house, and all the indictments on him and her. And you think this bitch can win????

One of the funniest quotes today.

Once you hit Ignore on 4 people in this thread, this 22-page thread dwindles down to a measly 2 pages.

Wow.

There you go again You really don't know what a conservative is. You are too naive to see that most so called liberals are not liberals at all. They are socialists. I have no problem with liberals. I have a problem with them being refered to as liberals when they are in fact socialists So... quit preaching that you are smarter or better than conservatives when you don't really understand what conservatives believe.
