Public meeting set for proposed charter school

There are 160 comments on the Las Cruces Sun-News story from Aug 11, 2012, titled Public meeting set for proposed charter school. In it, Las Cruces Sun-News reports that:

If OK'd by the state's Public Education Commission, Las Cruces and four other southern New Mexico communities could soon have a branch campus of a charter school that would allow each student to advance at their own pace, instead of moving up a grade each year at the end of the traditional school year.

This is needed desperately here in Alamogordo, especally for those students who could advance quicker but who aren't allowed to by our public system or by slower classmates. It would make learning a lot more enjoyable for those students because they would be able to see quicker rewards in advancing grades, even allowing them to start college classes much sooner than they might otherwise have been able.

"New Mexico is ranked about 45th to 49th in the U.S.(for education) and southern New Mexico is one of the weaker areas of the state," Casavantes said.

How could this be, Lad? We're so close to a plentiful supply of fair-skinned Welshmen just a wee walk from the border with Canada. Where could the lack of smarts and values be? Oh, wait. I think I've found the problem.

It wont matter to NM school age students how much money is supposedly saved, or how its supposedly done, because the corruption within all levels and areas of education in NM is SOOO BAD, that students will only get the bare minimum of benefits while the corruption pockets all the rest.

If the state would model the educational system after the Carrizozo Schools they would improve tremendously.

If by "the state" you mean all the politician's and the various state offices they are connected with, then you are 100 percent correct because Carrizozo was already rampant with corruption when a lot of those people were still in grade school or even younger! So when you consider the amount of theft and corruption that already exists in today's government, its not hard to see thats what a good part of our gov is already all about, so if they were to copy what our school system has already accomplished then they WOULD tremendously improve what they are already doing and speed up their progress of accomplishing many other dirty deeds that are currently in the works.

So why not just cut out the waste of $$$$, and just give them there GED diploma at age 6, because right now so many in New Mexico schools cannot read, write, or even fill out a job application when they get there diploma from the public schools, save 12 years of tax payers money....

Stop coddling the parents and teachers, kids can learn, make the parents and teachers do there job.

And so many don't know the proper usage of "their" as opposed to "there".

One on here in particular...but I doubt he was educated in New Mexico. I wonder which state gets that inauspicious honor.

When parents coddle kids, there going to have, to be paid like teachers over their in school. Plus, then, parents can earn a GED diploma right then and they're!

I'm poking fun at both Sailor and Teacher.

Sailor: Kids in Eddy Co schools will do just fine relative to big cities where Democrats have been voted in for decades. Kids here aren't actually raised by a working person, they at least KNOW some relative who works.(hello, Detroit, Cleveland, Newark, New Orleans)

Teacher: I'm dismayed at the 4 papers my son brought home yesterday from his 1st day of school saying that successful learning is half MY responsibility. If he is in a 18 pupil class, can I expect an $833 check in the mail for doing your part of that job in addition to my own?

At the top of your resume, does it say that you can teach all the kids in your class half of what they need to know as long as their parents got gobs of time at the end of THEIR day do mop up after you?

Uh, parenting is a thankless, non-paying job. You shouldn't have had children if you couldn't handle the responsibility.

Right on queue, Barb. Had my bat off my shoulder knowing I wouldn't have to wait 11 seconds for that pitch.

If I complained about starting homework back when I was a whelp, I could count on 'encouragement' from my parents. You know - the ususal 'water-bording','pistol-whippi ng me down the stairs' act. Whatever it took to get me enthused. But they always played dumb, so I'd have to be the one to mine the answer myself.

Play straight-bitch and you'll raise a few.

So your children quit learning the minute they leave school?
Wow!
