Rose Tactic #2- Misdirect
Rose Tactic #3- Make stupid comments until opposition is tired of replying then claim victory
Rose Tactic #4- Attack the poster
Rose Tactic #5 scream Racist, Bigot, Homophobe
Rose Tactic #6- Act intelligent by making silly statistical references such as- Most people who have anal sex are straight-
Rose Tactic #7- Falsely accuse others of lies- when proven wrong through links to previous posts revert back to tactics 2,4 and 5.
Akpilot tactic #1 - avoid discussion by posting his silly list lies and personal attacks, then blame me for the fact he can't have an adult discussion.

People given the choice will migrate towards better schools, with that migration that schools will be better funded and hire more and better teachers expanding their programs. Other schools will then have to compete or fail. When they fail, just like anything else, that void will be filled. Another school which is profiting from it's successful model, will expand into that void providing better education to those people as well.
The free market does work.
So when all the low end students who are dragging down the poor performing schools use their vouchers to transfer over to the good schools, how does that not drag the good schools down?

The free market works because someone wins and someone loses. With vouchers, the losers get to go to the same place as the winners and poison the well.

Your model leads to all the bad schools closing and the good schools getting less money per student, because now they have to pay for the infrastructure to transport them. The closed bad schools won't be replaced because nobody is going to take their kid out of the good school to give the new school a try. Not to mention, who's going to pay startup costs?

Vouchers work to help get a limited number of good students out of a bad school, but it just doesn't work in a universal application.

The answer lies in finding something to do with the bad students who are ruining it for everyone else. They divert so much time and resources.
Teaching to the test is nonsense.

But I still think critical thinking is the key, we need to start teaching it again, and stop teaching regurgitation just to pass a test and make the school look good.
hey sky pilot....

you seem to be a bit blearly eyed....

the free markets work fine for those of means....

we cant all be people of means......other wise there wouldnt be anyone to do the actual work.

Ill bet you own some stock....OIL STOCK??

so the system works fine does it?? then why do real wages keep declining?? while CEO saleries are now at roughly 350 times the the average worker..??

sound like you live in cloud city....

you said something that makes sense....

just one thing...

testing isnt going to help our students?? unless we put money into teaching them to pass those tests..

Ive only seen drop out rates increase, in places where MCAS style testing was applied.

the rethuglican approach to education leads to a more supliat resevoir of hopelessly uneducated labor.

it is the same approach they use in the abortion/BC debate...

they are adamantly opposed to abortion? but at the same time? are against the methods that prevent unwanted pregnancies..

and not all the repubs are this socially conservative....

but about a quarter of the electorate is serious learning impaired....... because of these recruiting methods that the tea party uses.

Nope, it wasnít the failed impeachment, people already knew what a partisan witch hunt it was, that was a joke and everyone knew it.

The problem was the scandal itself, if he had kept his pecker in his pants, we would never have had to suffer GW Bush

We have no idea how that would have turned out, but I can hardly imagine it being worse than what we had.

Bruno,
In my heart of hearts, I really wish you would grow up and start educating yourself.
Here's a start: An editorial that illustrates how the President is pretty much a moderate Republican, and more so than the blow-hards you've been aping would ever admit:
http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politi...
And seriously, Bruno, you're a blue-collar slob, the republicans only want your vote and tax money. They don't actually like you and they will never do anything to help you out.
I'm not a republican by any means. I was a democrat until Obammy started his campaign to take my hard earned income and medical benefits. He is only teaching to be a lazy America, lay back ad let the rich pay your way, and to prove this, he has given away work that cna be done here in this country but choses to outsource it. No you idiot, I am very educated when it comes to what is mine and how I got it. You on the other hand must be I would guess under the age of 50 who got everything through a government assistance and don't want to lose that comfort, it has become a part of your life and existence and you know no other way to exist.

Bush didn't do it all alone. This was a bipartisan path we were headed down for yeeeeaaars before he got in office. His actions certainly didn't help. Or I guess I should say they did help with the crash. Wars and tax cuts don't go hand in hand. If he'd have pushed for the money to pay for the war it wouldn't have happened though. Too few would have chewed on the bait.
lol reality check!... Exactly the same for obammy, he didn't do anything in his four years either you stupid dumbazzz. Wake up and smell the coffee. obammy is coming after your job, SS and medical benefits you sap.

no the idea was to keep Ryan/Romney out of office.....because they had a plan to VOUCHERIZE medicare, throwing million of future seniors to the wolves of the "free market"

so save the stereo typical tea tarded tripe that is derived from lies on faux news.......Romney was called out lying on the jeep ads, by the ceo's themselves.... I wonder why he lost OHIO?? you guys are so dumb..

mabey you can drift back twoards the center as a party, and participate in the poltical process again....

.... instead of just threatening to shut down the government, every time something doesnt go your way.

and you will have to because you guys REALLY got shellacked on tuesday....

but that is no suprise with all the legislation at the state level that declared war on the middle class, women, lgbt's, hispanics and seniors? and you wonder why you lost???

YOU wake up!!

ps:or you can double down on stupid, like I see many tea tards doing this week.....

Im not sure?? because clinton left office with a 68% approval rating....

and Gore distanced himself from slick willy..

obama embraced him?? look at how positive that turned out for the party??

Bush eeked out a win due to being a bush and that he lied convincingly enough to hispanics and women voters.......

the current teathuglicans niminated romney?? and he was handcuffed from reaching out to ANY of these groups??

and these tea tards here on this thread wonder why romney lost??

he not only didnt reach out to them? his rethuglican collegues at the state level declared war on those groups...
