Most baby sitters get $3.00 an hour per kid these days
SO the teachers would problbly LOVE to get paid like a babysitter
$3.00 hr x 30students =$90.00hr,
$90.00 x 40 hrs weekly =$3600.00
$3600.00 x 40weeks =$144,000.00
And the school system has been designed and adapeted around the working parent. As well as the childs ability to work. thats why we have such long summer breaks. Do we need this now... not really. I do agree in year round schooling. But the Naive belief that the school system is not a in a form of babysitting is kind of silly.

Most babysitters I know charge way more than $3 per hour.

So, you will have teachers to do the actual tutoring. Good to know because your spelling is atrocious.

If those are your worries then sounds like you should be attending parenting classes.

In Cloudcroft you can buy any kind of pill you want from any kid at school. You know why? Because their parents are taking all kinds of pills. Easy to steal from your parents to sell pills at the school.

Great, just great....now these sad a#$ schools will teach the kids even less. Not like we're churning out rocket scientists here, maybe the occaisional Meth cooker, but come on.....most rednecks can figure that out. The kids need quality instruction, not days watching the Pupfish. there are too dam many "in service" and continuous improvement days as it is. What are the continuous improvement days for anyway? Since they started the education for our kids sure hasn't improved! Lets do this, the school administrators will be paid according to the success they produce, kid goes to college,$100, kid get pregnant,-$100, see how that would work? If you can get the sad sack administrators at the high school out of their offices and into the classrooms, maybe something will improve. The schools here are friggin terrible.

Why do you say that? My son attends AHS and has never done any of the offenses. In fact, he's too busy to get into trouble.
Sounds like you are making excuses for your kid being a juvenile delinquent.
You must be so proud.

Question to cc residents

Iím moving there this summer. I hear wonderful things about your teachers and I actually like the four day week. I even like that the local churches are setting up activities for the kids on the off Monday. And the Guy Who is setting up a Not for profit tutoring service is going way up and beyond. It seems like everyone there works for the good of the community.

With that in mind..I have One question.. of all Iíve read and seen in the papers Iím wondering when you all are going to get rid of that superintendent, that seems to be working for himself and not the people of Cloudcroft?

Tell me when this thread is updated:
