The next thing we will be told is that RCSD needs more money because the kids are the problem and the teachers need another raise. What they really need is to get rid of the union and the teachers that don't care because of tenure.How much more B/S can they throw out there to cover up the fact that the RCSD just isn't doing it's job??

I do think you are being to hard on the teachers,union and RCSD.

Until the parents care and most dont how can a teacher teach.
Half the kids dont show up 30-40 percent of the time holding other kids back.(parents fault)

Schools should be separated into 3 or 4 groups and kids placed by their achievement.

Don't let underachieving kids hold back the achievers.

How many city kids in the third grade are performing at the kindergarten level?
A Lot and it all starts at home.

Yeah Pigpen, leave the city schools alone, no one wants to help those drop outs or criminals pass any classes. Filthy wants the status quo, which is to produce uneducated, welfare rats and gang bangers..........WOW, filthy your idea stinks

You had the stats wrong. On avg, ALL the primates miss school 30-40% of the time, not half the little apes.

If the kids dont go to school the parents dont get a check.Then attendance would improve.
