For the first time, most Americans think it is unlikely that today’s youth will have a better life than their parents.(Gallup poll, 2011)
American social mobility is increasingly becoming a thing of the past. Nearly two-thirds of children born to parents in the bottom income quintile remain stuck in the lowest two quintiles as adults.(Haskins, Ron (February 2008). "Education and Economic Mobility". In Isaacs, Julia B.; Sawhill, Isabel V.; Haskins, Ron. Getting Ahead or Losing Ground: Economic Mobility in America. Brookings Institution.)
Only 4 percent of Americans raised at the bottom of the economic ladder will rise to the top as adults.(“Pursuing the American Dream: Economic Mobility Across Generations; Pew Charitable Trusts, July, 2012.)
Nearly two-thirds of African-Americans who grew up in middle class families will fall to the lower rungs as adults.(“Pursuing the American Dream: Economic Mobility Across Generations; Pew Charitable Trusts, July, 2012.)
Public schools in other countries are more of a lever for social mobility that help children of all backgrounds realize their potential than they are in the U.S.(OECD, June, Education at a Glance, 2012)
The health of typical high school dropout, by age 18, is similar to that of a more educated person in his 40s.(College Board Advocacy & Policy Center, 2010)
White men with four years of college live 14.2 years longer than black men who drop out of high school. White women with college degrees live 10.3 years longer than black female high school dropouts.(Olshansky, et al., 2012)

One difference is tracking. Most foreign countries rate student performance and abilities and direct them toward specific goals which seem reasonable for that student. By 6 grade, most foreign students have been divided into achademic schools and trade schools to accommodate differences in individual abilities. Parents and students realize that education is an investment in the child's future as well as their society's future.
US schools are forced by the PC forces to pretend all students are equal in intelligence and ability and God forbid that we would label someone or treat them differently. The result is talented students are bored silly by the "average" instruction level and slow students are frustrated silly by the inability to keep up. Parents lie and make excuses for their children and then blame teachers for not performing miracles with the little darling reprobates. Drunken and drugged parents rage and argue all night and then are baffled at their child's inability to pay attention at school. All the problems of society become someone else's fault. Damn, it must be the schools.
We can afford to send trillions of dollars in foreign aid but we cannot afford to even educate our own children? WTF is wrong with you people?

With just the money sent to the short list of afore mentioned countries in foreign aid ($13,900,000,000 ), do you think we could possibly buy a couple reams of paper a pack of pencils and text books for each child?

Typical Commucrat response, lets throw more money at the problem! You've been trying that with every other social program for 50+ years and it hasn't worked yet....although it does continue to buy you votes!
Funny how you blame the Republicans for the pitiful NC schools and they've been in control now for what, 6.5 months? The Commucrats had control for the last 126 years....we all know where the blame truly lies.

If you want to change something, you must first start with the culture.The poor children can't afford pencils and paper but I betcha they've got an iPhone, an XBox, a 60" flat screen, and a $200 pair of LeBrons! In their culture, these things are more important than an education. No matter how much money you throw at education, it'll never change until you change their mindset!

I guess since they can steal x boxes, they could also just steal some paper , pencils and books. Maybe the teachers could just give the kids a list of things to steal.
That way republikans wouldn't have to spend any money on education for their own kids. Just introduce that into next weeks legislative session. It is sure to pass.

Republikans steal Charlotte's airport to punish them for being democrats. Charlotte gets a restraining order to stop the theft by legislation.

Charoltte files a lawsuit against the legislature and its kleptomaniacal action. Issue will be in court for years. Huge sums of money will go to lawyers. The legislators are lawyers. Now we know why they previously allowed additional $50,000 tax breaks for every lawyer in every NC law firm.

Looks like republikans in Raleigh are now working to establish state control of all local assets that locals have built, paid for and operated for years. State republikan lawyer legislators obviously think they know better how to run water systems and airports than the locals who built them.. That process is known as communism. That is how commies took control of Russia and China.
