I simply copied what a teacher in a predominately black school had written. The rest of the article(which is long) points out that learning is the reponsibility of students and parents. That the failure to learn is not a teacher failure but a student and parent failue.
There are are probably more failing white sudents living in single parent homes than failing black children living in single parent homes simply as a result of the fact that there are consideraby more white chldren and white families. So blaming white people for the failure of black children is certaily unreasonable if you consider the number of failures. Looking at percentage of failues by race gives a higher value for the blacks, which tempts simpletons to attribute that higher percentage ony to racial bias. The problem is infinitely more complex than that. However, there are no arguments that I am aware of that claim children fom single parent out perform other students---they dont and the difference is glaring, regardless of race. And there are obviousy exceptions for all generalizations like this one.

I agree, parents involvement in their child's lives is the most important aspect, especially when concerning education, but what I got from your article was that the teachers are saying its not their fault the students aren't learning, it's the parents fault? Isn't it the teachers job to teach? Because children learn at different levels, speed, comprehension, etc..., isn't it their job to try and reach every student? New schools, free laptops, etc..., doesn't teach a child, the teacher does. I guess because I'm used to dealing with private school teachers, I'm not used to teachers passing the buck! It's safe to say this article was written by a govt school teacher!

Only faulting Hillary like you fault bush.
The embassy had security, in tripoli. The consulate, in Benghazi, is a tad different in mission and it is the state dept responsibility to provide security for consulates.
Who was in charge of the state dept?
Hillary Clinton.
Was there no Marine Expeditionay Unit on float in the Med, was there no carrier battle group on station in the Med, not one SEAL team or Delta platoon on stand by, ready to be deployed, for when help is called for?
Perhaps your teammates are incapable of determining what is and is not a viable threat?
So our team failed to determine the threat that killed four, and your team failed to determine the threat that killed three thousand. Got it.

Typical liberal response. Expand government by creating more jobs for the taxpayer to subsidize.
This is not what I wish for, it is what would happen if the government listened to your bitching about what grade the civil war should be taught in.

The problem is, conservatives keep asking for small government then demand things that create more government.

Some kids lack motivation. We call parents regularly and report their current state to them. When a parent is called and a kid continues to fail to bring in homework, make effort in their work, and cause disruptions in the classroom, we continue to do our job and attempt to teach them. We report to the administration and all the discipline measures they come up with also many times do not work. Requested parent conferences very seldom are attended by many parents. You can fire one of your employees, but we can't fire any student. The struggle continues on. Maybe you have some suggestions.

<quoted text>First, you need to get your facts straight. The very next day the Ruler didn't say these acts were committed by terrorist, but rather,(and just as the moderator of the foreign policy debate pointed out), he called it an "act of terror." Since the Ruler has ended the "war on terror", terrorist no longer exists so it had to be an "act of terror" carried out by civilians protesting a video! These aren't my words, they're the Rulers words.(You see Bacon, another example of people listening to the Ruler but NOT hearing what he says.)
As far as the funding, Bacon has already schooled you on who is to blame. If I give you a thousand dollars to pay the bills and you waste the money on frivolous purchases, don't whine to me when the bill collector comes a knocking! Own up to the blame, show some responsibility and PLEASE quit watching MSNBC and regurgitating their talking points.
Can we put up the daily color coded alerts to terror like in the good old fear mongering Bush days?
Funny how those suddenly stopped right after he was reelected. Tricked your scared ass.

You think the situations were the same? Your smarter than that. The Towers were the beginning, Benghazi was a continuation, if you can't see the difference, go watch a protest video. I know, "What does it matter", it happened. Makes me sick, to compare the two events is asinine.

Bush lead the citizens to believe Saddam was responsible for 9/11. Polls show when Bush was reelected, 75% of republicans and 50% of democrats thought that Saddam had ties to 9/11.

Now keep crying wolf, as no one is listening.

Yes, I compare the two, and you have yet to demonstrate why I should not.
Begining or continuation. What is the difference?
Bush failed to protect the American homeland. Three thousand civilians died due to the failure. Now you can wish to sweep that under the rug, but I will not allow it to be done.

Everytime your team brings this up, the people are reminded of the Bush failure to protect America.

This is why your team is falling apart.

Arnold based off the definitions of act of terrorism I posted, all of us that talked about having the fear of God put upon us by spanking would make our parents terrorists. I don't think any of us were raised by terrorists. One of the meanings was "causing fear." I can tell you one thing, when my mom got out the old double dogwooder, she must have been on the FBI and Interpols's list of known or wanted terrorists cause there was serious fear placed on me.
So your mother used fear to control you. I see. I can see how you are to ignorant to understand the relationship of terrorism useing fear to control.
Bush was well versed in this use of fear mongering to control. Now build a bunker because the color coded warnings are flashing in your head.

Your kids are not your friends or peers. They not equals. They are your kids. Till they are out of your home, fending for themselves i.e. paying their own bills etc etc etc, they are not entitled to any sort of freedom of expression or liberties.
He who has the money makes the rules. Why do you think your teammates are stealing it(through taxation) from those who can manage their wealth and giving it away to those who can't?
Once someone is born in America, they are entitled to the rights provided by the constitution.

I know you hate that so much, you are leaving America. Good riddance.

So, in your view, Your own children are denied freedom of speech and cannot express an opinion that is different than yours? Their indiviuality is never encouraged? If they do express a different view, do you send them to the tundra region of your house, demand slave labor and food deprivation?
This is how republicans brainwash their kids to be republicans. It is a vicious cycle.

Want to improve your wealth? Private message me and I can give you a number to call. But he charges a fee for advice.
So you thus are advocating larger government.

See the trend? Conservatives are so dense, they cannot understand why government grows when they ask for such things.

Twice in one day. Next you will be asking to grow the military.

Maybe, therein lies the problem. Education should be considered a privilege, not a right, entitlement, etc,,,, as it is in the many countries that kick out asses every year. Hence the difference with private schools, it IS a privilege to attend, therefor the scores, participation by students, parents, & teachers, and the overall experience is greater than govt schools.

Since we are beating this dead horse, again, our kids are grown. They have the right to define themselves however they see fit. They all have chosen for themselves to align themselves with conservative points of view. They did have "black" friends while they played sports and they even listened to rap music at some point. But, again, the all have chosen, on their own free will, to endorse a conservative point of view.
Fortunately, for Katie and I, we taught them to make decisions based being informed and not an emotions. I am not sorry you disagree. Perhaps when you have your own children, you can raise them your own way.
Clearly you do not understand how your influence compromised their free will. Free will is not black and white.
You clearly brainwashed them to think as you do for the most part.

Emotions should be listened to, but not relied upon as if not possibly faulty. You seem to rely on your instinct for seperation of others not like yourself.
You do just as the apes of today do. They segregate themselves from other tribes.
You fail to use the logic man has to understand that those who do not look like yourself are still humans and are good to work and play together with.

I see you cannot even remember what you claim from one post to the next.
Note this statement by you here;They did have "black" friends while they played sports.
Now on my next post, I will show the contradiction.
This should help point out how you brainwash and are ignorant of it.

I have no reason to explain myself to you, again. Your assertion that civil rights have been violated but not proven in a court of law by a jury of our peers. And your opinions mean precisely dick, blackface.
Katie and I are leaving them nothing. We have paid for and provided all we are ever going to provide. They can earn their wealth and provide for themselves now, since they are adults.
Just like Katie and I did.
What I don't understand about you AZ, is that you know you and I will never agree or see eye to eye on anything, yet you keep trying to generate some sort of response as if you have no other facets in your life that show you some sort of attention? Are you really that pathetic, starved of attention or in dire need of validation that you are relying on Topix to fill that gap?
It was rhetorical question but you answered it already...
"They did have "black" friends while they played sports."

Now did they have black friends or not? I am not sure if you know what the word even means.

So clearly your dictator like demands slowly brainwashed your children to be racist like yourself.
