We have to make people aware that our State is run by public employee Unions and we need court casesRead More like today which ruled that the California Teacher Tenure rules are unconstitutional so that we can change laws and vote people out of office who do not represent the interests of the public who pay the taxes.

Something that is interesting to note is that high school grads are going to four year universitiesRead More and studying subject that isn't marketable. While on the other hand you have people getting vocational training at vocational schools that essentially guarantees them a job out of school that will make them 'x' amount of money. So it isn't that college degrees are worthless, some are. It is also said that sometimes trade school is the right choice!

It will make education a lot easier on the students and teachers. With the mobile society of today,Read More the Common Core Standards will help everyone stay on the same track from Missouri to California. I have been teaching for 24 years this is nothing new. It only brings all the states together to teach a common core. Everyone needs to chill.

We are a Pre-School but we prepare our students for Kindergarten and have been teaching Common CoreRead More Standards for some time now. We utilize products we make (http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/I-Can-Read-Bundle-976987) or purchase materials from many other wonderful teachers on www.teacherspayteachers.com who teach Common Core as well.

Congratulations Aaron. Others are watching you and you have proven to be an example worthRead More following. The best is yet to come in your life!

As I said that was not my intent. I do not think I made that implication but some obviously inferredRead More it.

Your first statement... "Crop of right wing bigots"
JD August 7, 2013 at 05:20 pm
A crop does not equal all. If you saw it that way it was your inference.

There is a reason they are unaccredited, isn't there? What is that reason??? Maybe if the parentsRead More took more of an interest in their children's education i.e. helping them with their homework, getting them the tutoring they need (for the students that need it), they would not be in the situation they are in. The ones that are wanting to learn, are not the problem, it is the hoodlums that don't know how to keep their pants up, they have a chip on their shoulder and a bad attitude and don't want to learn anyway.

Show me one failing district whose kids are bused to a another school where that district improved.Read More We've been busing kids for 4 decades to what avail? Look at the data at any of the receiving schools and you will see large differences in test scores by race. Nothing about this situation will change that. Maybe these kids should choose to attend the University City school district. After all, it's much closer and their good liberals are color-blind. Oops, the UC school district is rated only slightly better than Normandy and RG. I wonder why a city that is 50% white has a high school that is 90% black. I can think of only one reason.

The district began by saying it could accommodate 100 students from Riverview & Normandy. ThenRead More it changed that number to 175. Next we were going to take 152, but still only had room for 175 students. Now we’re taking 186? Is this because of the strong-arming of the ACLU? NAACP? What sort of transparency is this when the numbers keep magical changing before our eyes? What sort of a fix is this, Kurt? At the end of your article you stated "What is the problem? I can think of only one thing." What were you trying to insinuate, Kurt? More of that liberal racism card we hear bellowed at every turn?

When I have a shortfall, I have to cut my spending. We just increased (I'm sorry -Read More "extended") taxes for the schools last year. C'mon people!
