That mayor bloomberg sure has his priorities in place don't you think? That explains all of the bans he has enacted on things like big gulps and trans fats. His citizens really are too stupid to make their own decisions or read the ingredient labels.

Amazing, isn't it? This is the failure of the public school system.

Did you happen to read some of the comments beneath the article? Classic New Yorkers.

----------

Whoever wrote this piece needs to re-learn basic proofreading and spelling skills. "Emersion" is not a word, but "immersion" is. Likewise "group" has a typo in it "grouip" and "nervous" is misspelled as "nervus". Poor form to make such mistakes in an article critical of student learning

----------

Wanna bet both the writer and the editor probably 'graduated' from NYC schools.

----------

Welcome to government schools. I bet they know how to put condoms on bananas though.

Two words: Teacher Unions
~~~

Daddy, what did you used to do at work ?

Well son, I was a NEA union leader and I didn’t really work, I just collected dues from union teachers that did work, and then spent that money on corrupt Democratic politicians so the NEA union could gain an unfair bargaining position with the government education system. But the schools closed because the States couldn't afford the unions teacher contracts and the country (government) went broke…

Daddy, is that why we live in a box ?

No son, this is Obama’s socialist utopia !

The dedication to fixing the problem just isn't there! The minute someone comes up with an alternative that might fix the problem, we have the teachers, their lobbiest/PA people out there saying, we need more teachers, smaller class rooms etc. The problem is family, Mom and Dad, dedicated to education and taking an active role. No longer moving people along because of the social stigma of failure. There is no harm in failing, if you do something about it. Without Family, the results are right here in this story! It is the Teacher, the kid, the mom and the dad, not working in concert that has created the next generation of welfare recipients. Reverse the effort, produce the results, but at some point, it someone needs to tell the minorities, firmly, this is the only way out, every other effort has failed. Education, Education, Education, Must be the focus! not the enemy!

Even without knowing anything other than what you wrote on here, I can guarantee you are a product of the government schools.

Says the hobo in a box.

Unions fight for the worker and make sure teacehrs get paid fair. Do you want school teachers to be malnourished?

You were right on that one SL. It's always convenient when the other guy in the argument makes your case for you even better than you could.

I blew in town 40 years ago, I ain't seen a lotta girls since then
If I could find'em I could get'em but as yet I have'nt met'em
That's why I'm in the shape I'm in ohhhh

Another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody
I got no money cuz I got no job
How I wish I had someone to talk to
I'm in awful mess
Another fella told me he had a sister that looked so fine
Instead of being my deliverance, she had a strong resemblance
To a cat named Frankenstein ohhhh....

Another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody
I got no money cuz I got no job
How I wish I had someone to talk to
I'm in awful mess
It's hard for a fella, when he don't know his way around
If I can't find me a honey to help me spend her money
I'm gonna have to blow this town ohhh....

I saw a piece on the news last night about the battle that public schools are fighting to combat obesity.

Isn't that nice?

Instead of teaching American History and Calculus to students, the public school teachers are spending their time telling the children not to eat candy bars for breakfast.

You won't find the candy bar discussion in the course syllabus at St Thomas or Providence Academy. No wonder the private school kids have vastly higher test scores than public school kids.

I don't have a problem with another generation of fat black people who can't read. Someone needs to maintain the bottom rung on the ladder of evolution.

I attended catholic schools in both grade school and high school. They actually did address issues such as nutrition and healthy lifestyle. But it was something that was left up to you to decide. Not the schools or lunatic health nazi's like bloomberg. The primary focus, especially in HS, was on preparation for entering college.
