What are you talking about? You're making even less sense than usual.<quoted text>Are you on drugs? It's about the only way your rhetoric can be described. I was correcting your brother between his claim of "CISD finally balanced their budget" the reason for last year's layoff's, this year it's because of shortfall of state funding which you don't have a concept of!

Of course a simple minded organism like yourself would not understand it even if I drew you a picture.

American Education Fails
By Tom DeWeese

The debate over public education grows more heated. Regularly, reports are released showing that the academic abilities of American students continue to fall when compared to those in other countries.
Twenty years ago the U.S. ranked first in the world in the number of young adults who had high school diplomas and college degrees. Today we rank ninth and seventh, respectively, among industrialized nations. Compared to Europe and Asia, 15-year-olds in the United States are below average in applying math skills to real-life tasks. The United States ranks 18 out of 24 industrialized nations in terms of relative effectiveness of its education system. Knowledge in history, geography, grammar, civics and literature are all in decline in terms of academic understanding and achievement.
To solve the crisis, politicians, community leaders, and the education community all preach the same mantra. Students fail, they tell us, because "expectations haven't been set high enough." We need more "accountability," they say. And every education leader and nearly every politician presents the same "solution" to the education crisis: more money, better pay for teachers, and smaller classroom numbers so the children get enough attention from the teachers.
Consequently, there are two specific categories in which the U.S. excels, compared to the rest of the world. First, the U.S. ranks second in the world in the amount we spend per student per year on education =$11,152. The U.S. is also a leader in having some of the smallest classroom numbers in the world. Yet the slide continues. American students grow more illiterate by the year. How can that be? We're doing everything the "experts" tell us to do. We're spending the money. We're building more and more schools. We're raising teacher's pay.

I agree with you 100 percent, it is sad to listen to my children and grandchildren come home and tell us that their teacher and soccer coaches have convince them that if the bond and TRE fails they will be out of a job. By all accounts Dr. Murphy has gone on a scare tactic campaign from teachers, coaches, custodians, 18 year old students (got them to register to vote), to middle school students to vote yes. A question on local news TV of who actually would benefit the most from developers (Winton Homes), land owners or the school district has suddenly gone quiet! A lot of unanswered questions, are they really after the bond and TRE for the good of the education of the children of the Canutillo ISD???
