Yay Federal judge! About time Florida had its hate counteracted. I used to live in Ocala, was a nice place. Hope the GOP does not get a strangle on such a pretty city.

The idea of local school boards isn't working

Obama needs to nationalize the educational system until the local morons figure out whats up

Because the Right would flip out and called it <gasp> "socialism."

Never mind it is a good idea. We've sacrificed our childrens' future in the name of Federalism.

I don't care what "ism" you assign to it, we should look at how much better the European education systems are than ours. It's inexcusable.

But try to convince a teabagger of that and see how far you get.

A few year ago the ACLU won a case like this against the Nassau County School Board/Yulee High School (Yulee, Nassau County, Florida).

I take it you favor unregulated capitalism and unbridled greed. Socialism falls more in line with the true teachings and spirit of Christ. I'm proud to be a moral upstanding socialist. Europe is so far ahead of this retarded country in the evolution of a better society.

No. Libertarianism is more in line wit the teachings of Christ. Christ left it up to the individual's conscience to help people, not the coercive power of the state.

That's a grand idea

Then after the right-wing morons align with The Gay Agenda we can let them apply for conditional re-statehood

You are all talking stupidly about the
advantages and disadvantages of EURO countries.

We have better public education but a weaker
economy. Neither have anything to do with the
other.

Our economy is tied so closely to the USA economy
that all the mistakes your government makes
inevitably filter down to us. Your currency is at
its lowest in decades so ours is proportionately
diminished.

Our education system is better not because our
government makes it so but because our childrens
education is still viewed as a family responsiblity.

We have gays and lesbians in our schools just as
in USA but they do not bother us as much. We are
too busy learning for a better job to let hate
be our teacher.

We want better, we try harder.
