There are other aspects to going to school, socialization skills, team work, competitiveness..
When I meet home schooled kids, they are lacking in the above. It's wrong to label all teachers bad because of a few, most teachers I have met are extremely devoted, working long hours, spending their own money for school supplies, truly caring that their students succeed. For many children, school is their solace. To deprive children of this structure would be devastating, especially since most parents cannot stay home to teach them, nor are they capable.
One other thing. Drop the concept that every child must attend school. Purge the schools of the troublemakers who have no interest in learning and who just prevent others from learning.

The teachers are not, for the most part, the problem. The problem is the system.
Teachers are amply paid and higher salaries will not improve anything. Instead, weed out the dead wood and hire some young people with new ideas and energy.
More than anything, run the system for the benefit of the students and not for the benefit of the employees.
you got that right, the problem is the system besides each state educational standards are different.

I have news. Bush was President until Jan of 2009.
We lost one out of every three manufacturing jobs under Bush.
We doubled the debt under Bush
Bush started with a balanced budget & his last budget was over a trillion in deficit.
As you brag about the gains right up until the house of cards collapsed, you ignore the false gains hidden in the housing bubble.
You act like the kid who climbs to the top fa tree yelling "look at me Look at me" right before he fell.
Hey, Jerk! Isn't this what's called Bush-Bashing? Shame on you! Let's see now....this is nearly 2013 and you STILL go way out of the way to avoid blaming the Boy Messiah for anything.

You've worn it out, ImaginaryDave. And don't try the "You hate him because he's black" routine. That's older than Bush-Bashing.

Try something new and fresh, pal. Look at some old X-Files reruns. Maybe you can find something there.

More losers clamboring for that which they did not have the intellect or the motivation to achieve themselves.
Most rich people stole it by cheating on there taxes like the Walmart family and Mitt Romney and not paying there slave laborers anything and not giving them health insurance and overpricing there products and selling to many guns to murderes and thus increasing crime rates in America but not giving health insurance to crime victims. Rich people sucks.

I know about economy an I know that if greedy CEOs shared there wealth with there employes the economy would stabilize and the deficit wouldnt fall off the cliff and it would cure the national debts. If every CEO would just sold just one of there vacation homes and shared it with there employees the physical cliff could be solved and President Obama could get back to the business of governing and getting rid of guns and hate radio.

And YOUR fruedian slackertic robbinghoodtic type GREED is even more DISGUSTING, than a greedy hedge fund managers!!!
A presidental candidates personal wealth is every Americans business. Mitt Romney lost the election because he's is a crook an Americans throughout the world and coast to coast didn't fall for his shinanegens because we are informed enough to President Obama. He should be placed under investigaton by the FBI and CIA for his felonys and voter fraud.

If you ever held a management position (above that of say a fast food restaurant) you would know that especially at the CEO level and similar their bonuses are part of their contract. Itís negotiated at the time they are hired.
If fast food resterants would pay there workers a fair wage and health insurance instead of CEO bonuses people could get ahead more in life.

Ask any NON-union, non BAILED-out FORD type dept manager that sucked it up and took the LOSSES right in their own pockets--alll the way back down to minimum wage for double and triple time duties--all through the recessive auto economy!
Fords are junk. They don't even build any green cars like the Chevy Volt or Nisaan Leaf. They don't care about the enviroment, just money. All they care about is money like Mitt Romney and the Walmarts. How many people have died in Ford Pinto explosions for the sake of profits? How many people died in Ford Explorers that rolled over for the sake of profits? How many people died in Ford factories before the UAW made them start following safety rules. And they still outsource everything to China.

Virtually all of Obumbles closet advisors and staff have never ran as much as a lemonade stand. Is it any wonder the economy still stinks?
President Obama turned Chicago's economy around when he was Senator just like he's doing now as President. He also reduced crime and made health care available to all Chicagoans, not just the privileged few. And he helped implemented the strictest gun control laws in the country. Gun crimes in Chicago dropped dramatically when he was Senator.

Makes sense. Predicting outcomes of elections is their field of expertise and contribution. The election is over.
Obama's "handling" of Hurricane Sandy surprised everyone.
Yeah Carol, and Rove and Morris were so spot on weren't they? Rove's meltdown on air was an embarrassment and signaled the end of his credibility.
No one with half a brain was surprised at the President's handling of Sandy you clueless twit. It's what happens when you put people in charge that actually know what they're doing unlike his predecessor who appointed a political hack with no experience in emergency management.

Banks are in business to make a profit, not give out pity loans to the un credit worthy, sad fact of life. When are you and some of the other liberal swells like Buffet,Clooney, Gates, etc. going to start your bank? The po' folks need loans.
Bank CEOs are overcompensated like all CEOs. That's why the economy was tanking. Fortunately President Obama's policies are turning things around

What you really mean is to kick out all the blacks. Typical republican. Each and every child deserves the opportunity to an education. You would have probably "purged" Barack Obama because he's black, thus depriving our country of one of the greatest leaders it has ever had. It's sad that racism is still so rampant in America.
