This isn't a story, just a headline. How lame. Don't post unless there is news!

It ought to be the new truth. Look at the Petersburg school system graduates. I see them walking down the street with their pants hanging down their butt, like they are looking for a friend back there, and not to mention all the stupid trash that is pregnant in the early teen years. So you see, the Principal, as being head of the teachers, sets the standard. The fact is that the protoplasm that are ineducable in the imbecilic school system, which, by the way, is the worst in Virginia. The teachers are the next in line because the Principal is a simpleton and is unable to enforce any rules simply because the inbred parents of the retarded students cannot even read. Whose fault is that? The parent who delights in causing trouble, the teachers who are incapable to teach a piece of wood to read, or the Principal, who is a puppet?
One looks at the School Administration Building and sees all the cars there, doing what?
Some solutions.
1. Get these clowns who go to the schools to pull up their pants.
2. Pregnant student, to a special school to teach them primarily how to care for a child, since she will either care for it, or flush it, or foster it. Then, if she wants back in school, let her write a long essay on what she has learned with respect to this incident.
3. Have the Parent come to the school and sit with the child for a semester, just to see what goes on in these miscreant institutions. Maybe they will have a modicum of responsibility when they get out. The parent, I mean.
4. Consequences for each action. I have had the misfortune of working along side some of the Petersburg finest. lazy, back talkers, threatening, insolent, indolent, disrespectful, borderline, Axis 2, graduates.
So, does the blame rest on the Principal, whose hands are tied by the misdirected parent, because, in most cases, there is only one. Who threatens and demeans authority. So what are they teaching the miscreants? Does the blame rest on the teachers, who can do nothing, trying to enlighten 40 dead light-bulbs sitting in her class? All them poor souls can do is throw up their hands and have the inner satisfaction they did the best and the ignoramus will find out later in life as they enter the doors of a correctional institution.
So, let us blame society. The easiest, because there is non-specific persona there.
As I walk in the streets and have the misfortune to try and educate here and there, which is met with rebuke and hatred, often by the teacher, because, in reality, they are not all that smart. Do they have continuing education? No! I was in the position to watch them, and the very, very, few shining bulbs seemed to have been a delight for the teachers, God bless. So there you have it.

How long will people wait. Need to get rid of everyone in the failed school system including the school board. The parents wont allow a change. They would call it discrimination.

Resistance to change is what is keeping the prison systems full, Steve. This is big business and drives certain parts of the economy. For instance, Legalize pot, and let all the small time clowns out. So they hit the streets and find that it is like alcohol now and no market for the brown headache crap that got them locked up. Half the prison empty, clowns on the street breaking into homes or looking to beg in the streets. Back to the can, lawyer makes out, court makes out, taxes go up. no win situation. It starts in the schools and they are a failure. teachers who sit and read while the students are babysat. What a society. Thx
