I don't disagree with anything you said here aside from the vouchers. 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.
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.
No, vouchers fail once you introduce "special needs" kids into the mix. Special education is expensive, sometimes VERY expensive. Some private schools (VERY expensive ones) exist to teach small groups of specific segments of special needs kids, but most private schools can't or won't even try to deal with it.

Hard not to like Slick Willy, he sure has charisma and times were good when he was pres. but I don't know how much credit he should get for that, they were generally good all he had to do was not F*** it up.
He was impeached on Dec 19, 1998.
I might be a bit late with this...

Slick Willy did not actually lie when he said that he did not have sexual relations with that woman. He was playing with words, and using a specific meaning to imply a more general (mis)understanding. He was honest: he did not stick his penis into her vagina and that is exactly what he said. If people thought that he was saying that he never did anything sexual, well... that was their own ignorance.

Vouchers are a form of welfare for the rich, folks that already pay to have their kids in private school... get a voucher!

every person that has a kid in private school will be all for vouchers, instant free government money!

For some reason (smile) you are in a minority...
No question, their are opinion programs on Fox. They are labeled as such. But if you want fair and balanced news, there is no better source than Fox. Just a simple fact.
However, the best option is to listen to numerous source. They ALL have slants!
What you fail to address, and in fact affirm, is that you and the one I responded to simply engage in censorship.
Unwise and un-American.
Smile.
No I am an American, and I wonít watch Faux news because so many un-Americans are showcased there.

You canít fool me kiddo... I have seen the circus, they are easily the worst news program on TV closely followed by MSNBC as the second worst

Funny how this piece of WoRk managed to HIDE his arrest for so long?

The Orange County Register reported Thursday ( http://bit.ly/QeKMWt )

that a CHP report says Schroeder had slurred speech and failed a sobriety test after being stopped at 3:20 a.m. on November 01, 2012..

JUST GOES TO PROVE THAT GOP CANDIDATES ARE REAL DRUNKS.

The actual news, that gets instructions from headquarters on how much time to spend on one story or the next depending on what political implications each story will have.

Faux is by far the worst, their newscasters are political puppets, MSNBC is a close second.

In the evening it just gets worse.

For the information of all of my Homosexual friends, the lesbians, my fellow dog lovers, the resident Covina idiot, "and others", I have received no further updates on the condition of Svengoolie. Rich's family has requested we respect their privacy. This we will do.

The important historical documentary "The Ghost of Frankenstein" is scheduled to be aired this coming Saturday on the Svengoolie program. I hope all my "multiculturally diverse" friends will tune in.

In the meantime, I though you all might enjoy watching a skit preformed by Rich in his younger days. It is a spoof of The Andrews Sister's morale building wartime song "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy of Company C" entitled "The "Boogie-Woogie Bogeyman of Berwyn". Rich was accompanied on trumpet by the incomparable trumpeter Doug Scharf who plays Doug Graves on the show. My honey howls loudly every time I play this clip for him. Enjoy.

Don't get me started. I cringe when I see a real soldier saluting a non veteran or even worse, a draft dodging Commander in Chief.
