Complete nonsense. The ONLY way to teach writing is to HAVE students write essay answers, peer graded, re-written, then the TEACHER has to run through them and a final re-write by the student.

Does it take time? DUH!

Parents are the first line of teaching here, too.

We MUST SLASH the budget and our Marxist 'educators' must feel the tax payer WRATH! They don't know how to teach, destroy the true ed system we had decades ago, run around trying to get money to make the school climate WORSE, and all on the backs of tax payers.

Parents, trust me on this, ya don't want to trust the State to 'educate' your kids.

HOMESCHOOL is the ONLY OPTION.

And, Marxist school District, do NOT even try to sneak another property tax on us.

I'll be ready to fight next time.

I STILL can NOT believe my IDIOT neighbors voted this in.

They have no idea that anti-Christ Marxists teach their kids!
