<quoted text>Although govt schools have come along way since we were there, they're still lacking in "educating" the students. Two examples; 1) one of my daughters friends transferred to private school from govt school last year. She had just completed 5th grade and when she took the private school placement test, she was told she'd have to repeat the 5th grade because she was to far behind her peers to join them in the 6th grade. 2) my neighbor's son just transferred to govt schools from the same private school because of his athletic skills and the athletic opportunities available in the govt system. He had just completed the 8th grade so he was placed in the 9th grade (HS). His scores placed him in all of the college prep honors classes where he's excelling because they're doing the work that he's already done! He continuously talks about how easy school is and how in private school he was tested in most subjects at least three times a week and now in govt schools (college prep, honors) he's lucky if he gets one test a week! Also, he says in private schools its all about learning,(because regardless of how much it cost, if you don't make the grade you're out) and in govt schools it's all about the social issues...who's got the newest sneakers, who's got the hottest car, who's got the newest phone, who's got the freshest clothes, etc... He says if the govt school kids put as much emphasis on learning as they do the social issues, there would be no reason for Americans to fall behind the rest if the world in education, that's when I point out, it's the teachers that make the difference because in private schools, if you don't make the grade, then they're also out!
As far as common sense, I agree. That's why I call it uncommon sense, because its not so common anymore!
Your"social issues"comment was brilliant.Socializing is the main thing people do in public schools, and learning to"fit in".The nail that sticks out, must be hammered down....

What's the deal with Arnold? It seems a little heated there!
I guess, I'll go for a run. It's nice outside and this has turned out to be a pretty day.
No rain! There's a blizzard up North and I wish there was a blizzard here once in a while.
I love snow! Snow boarding etc. it's a lot of fun!

Sorry, waco, I meant to say Postal worker.

Let's get something straight here, Waco. We agreed not to post each other (Your suggestion), but I am not going to let you make some negative reply to my post to someone else and stand by and do nothing. So, which way do you want it?

Well Good! Did you see the big fight between Jeff Gordon's team and Clint Bowyer? I kept saying, "don't you hit Jeff, don't you hit Jeff". Clint really deserved the bump that Jeff gave him. I don't blame Jeff at all.

I just wish Clint would have received punishment instead of Jeff. I guess, it should have been equal.

I wish I was moving out of the Country! Virgin Islands, sounds good to me. A lot of people that live in the US, are moving to other countries. It's always the same answer; because of the Gov't.

No I did not say it was a communist movement. I said it was being used as a Communist movement. It is the hook for a scam. The right thing use for the wrong perpose.
People are easily duped. It is amazing and it is because they are lazy.
Being mislead has nothing to do with being lazy. The right thing was freedom, the wrong thing was the motive behind it. Even in the days of salvery, a man who owned more slaves was taxed at a much lower rate than those who owned just a few. Go figure.
