I feel gay teachers have the most to loose in these changes because of discrimination.

Wow. What you are saying about your kids school is fantastic. So I checked. Here is what I know so far: 1. The tuition for my two high school students would be $13,640 EACH or a total of $27,280 per year. 2. Obviously, I will have to buy their books, supplies and lunch. 3. They have listed 18 administrators and 22 teachers so they are just barley under public schools in their top heavy administration percentage 4. They do not list courses available other than music, art, theater, French and Spanish. apparently, advanced classes are only offered "online"which can be done at home 5. The evaluating organization ERB that you mentioned is a paid membership organization.( You pay them to give you an evaluation. I guess the more Gaston Days them, the better your evaluation) 6. Gaston Day is 68 miles from my home , so I would be driving 136 miles per day for say 180 days or 24480 miles per year or at .$50 per mile would be $12,240 per year).(about 2 1/2 hours driving per day. 7 The faculty is listed, but their academic credentials are not listed. If I were running such a fantastic school with such qualified teachers, I would proudly list their academic qualifications. If I were running such a fantastic school, I would also list the course selection available.
8 . I notice that a requirement for students is that they must display exemplary conduct . That tells me that there are no rapist, armed robbers, or even murderers sent there by the courts and that the disruptive students who would bring down learning and test score averages are not even there to be figured into the "average"
So lets see here:$27280 tuition +$12240 transportation + books + supplies + miscellaneous= more than $40,000 per year. So the state will give Gaston Day $4500 per student,(If my kids qualify) so I still end up paying over $30,000 per year for my kids to attend Gaston Day and they will be taking "online courses" for advanced subjects?.

Nice over exaggeration! The SAT test scores, the graduation rates, university admissions, etc... don't lie! Surely you've heard the phrase "you get what you pay for?" Again, you, in general, can choose to live the ritzy lifestyle while being asshole deep in debt to impress people you don't know and send your children to govt schools to mingle with the rapist, drug pushing, gangster thugs only to be indoctrinated, and maybe, if you're lucky, your child can be one too OR you can forgo all of the material things that arent important and invest in your child's future. I'll stick with the private schools!

I can afford to send my kids to Gaston (but I am not going to because I can administer "online " courses from home). Now there is a single mom out the street who has a kid who could possibly benefit from a program of music, art, theater French and Spanish . She works at Hardees and makes $10 per hour for 40 hours per week for 50 weeks per year. That's $20,000 BEFORE TAXES and earned income credit has been eliminated in NC. The state will give her kid $4500 to attend Gaston so including transportation, she will only have to pay $11,380 for her kid to attend if the kid skips lunch each day. She is paying $500. per month on rent which is $6000 per year. That will leave her $50 per week for food . Well som would say impossible, but there are lots of possums run over in the road, and she could pick them up and eat those., I am glad the state wants to help her out.
Had your govt school taught that single mother to keep her legs closed, focus on her education, to choose a career path to where she possesses the skill set to excel,(and no, prostitution is not an acceptable career path), and to not even think about starting a family until she was mature enough to handle the responsibilities that come along with children, she wouldn't be in that predicament!
But then again, that's part of the liberal agenda being taught by govt schools! Live liberal and free and rely on others, mainly the govt/taxpayers, for your every need!

So on one hand you claim Voter ID laws aren't needed because there's no "proof" of voter fraud and on the other you claim private school teachers aren't qualified because they don't have to show "proof" of their credentials. Sounds like a contradiction to me!

Math lesson: A public school teacher has four 90 minute classes per day and there are 30 students in each class. Assuming no interruptions such as office announcements, pronouncements, assemblies, standardized test, etc., how much time does the teacher have for attention to an individual student?(assume no time lost moving between students and all students getting equal time)?

Answer: 360 minutes/ 120 students= 3 minutes /student/day

What the hell, she cant teach them in 3 minutes. Obviously a bad teacher.
You don't need a lot of time to teach or motivate individuals. Proof of that can be found in many places in history. General Patton did quite a bit of motivation in a very short speech.

<quoted text>Therein lies the problem with your question, the teacher isn't teaching to each individual student seperatly but rather to each individual student independently as a group/class. If he/she met with each student individually then your answer would be correct but the last time I checked, the teacher teaches to each individual student as a group/class, so the correct answer, without any interruptions, would be 360 mins or 6 hrs.(Even if you factor in that some students may need extra attention, there are also those who pick it up on the first lesson so they cancel each other out.)
Now you take those 6 hrs a day and multiply by 180 (the number of days in an average school year) and we'll find the teacher has 1,080 hrs to teach any said subject. Now if he/she can't get the job done in 1,080 hrs, regardless of class size, then yes, they are a bad teacher!
Pro, don't forget that today's teachers are teaching from a preset curriculum.

Children today will be good fund raisers, test takers and participants in life. Few leaders are being

The only reason I oppose the voter ID bill is that it wastes money addressing a non problem. I think I must be qualified to do brain surgery. Since I don't need credentials, I will do your first surgery at a d10% discount.

Putting a focus on core curriculum is one of the few things republican Governor McCorey is doing that I agree with. The other brilliant thing he says he will do is to eliminate the senseless, useless and needless waste of time having students taking non diagnostic state tests .

Well, you have a point in that private schools can be used to temporarily insulate a child from corruptive influences found in the general population of public schools. Admittedly, that is no small factor because the more mature child has a better chance of avoiding the pitfalls of drugs, alcohol, crime and risky sexual behavior. But the key word is temporary. The greater republican efforts to destroy public schools will bear fruit in the future with more crime, more illegal drugs, more alcoholism and more risky sexual behavior. The reasons are that more than 60% of the parent population cannot afford private schools even with the state subsidy , the private schools are not presently even in existence in most rural areas, the present private school legislation is a prescription for abuse and fraud, the anti education fervor will discourage the location of job creating businesses and the public schools without adequate funding can easily become more violent and chaotic.

Yet you failed to mention all of the details. Typical Commucrat, change the parameters of your argument to best suit your needs!

In that case, your govt school failed to teach the husband the same lessons as the wife. If they'd learned anything in govt schools, they'd both had established careers before they started their family and after the husnand's passing, she would've had life insurance, accidental death insurance, etc... to take care of her and her child. But since the govt schools FAILED both of these citizens, what insurance she received, if any, was squandered away because your govt school also failed her in the lesson of self responsibility, obviously, which has led to her employment at Hardee's. Maybe her child will be lucky enough to receive one of those private school vouchers, Cramerton Christian is only $3K a year, she'll have $1,500 left over to play with.

This is where you've been drinking the Commucrats Kool-aid. Republicans are not out to destroy govt schools, they're only trying to improve them by getting rid of the corruption. For example, doing away with tenure now means you can rid the system of inadequate teachers and replace them with quality teachers, thus improving education for the children. I see these teachers bitching and moaning about this but school isn't about them, it's about the children! I do agree however that govt schools are top heavy, to many chiefs and not enough qualified Indians.
Again, more than 60% CAN afford private schools, their priorities just aren't in order...by their choice. Not everyone has to attend pricey private schools, there are cheaper private schools that offer similar results, that's just the one we chose.
Businesses welcome the private school students, I'm not quite sure where you get your info. Now with manufacturing jobs, yes, most private school students are over qualified, but that's why we have govt schools.:)
Govt schools are violent and chaotic due to the culture and environment that the students are brought up in, which is the same culture and environment that the govt schools teach. They're just products of your own system!
It's quite obvious that you've never inquired with any private school, if so, your children would be in one. The quality of education is night and day and I'm sure you, like any parent, wants what's best for their child. Unfortunately most parents in today's society, not you necessarily, put themselves before their children.

So you'd rather waste taxpayer's money on more frivolous things like making sure private school teachers are qualified to teach? Don't you think the private schools spend their own money to vet their teachers? Hell, their reputation as a school depends on it, they don't need the govt to run their schools, the govt can't run their own!
With the new Voter ID laws, we'll see in the next election results just how much fraud really exists!
