Yeah they are Rochester's future shooting and assault victims and suspects. If you put forth little effort to teach someone then you will get very little achieved. Sad but true.

who cares.... if they raise school hours more kids will drop people have to get up early just to go to school....i hate how people that live in rochester live in a neighborhood like greece or henrietta or victor all of those are rochester their just a certain part of the city and they think their their own city but when the state gives rochester money then they want to be a part of rochester.... every place in monroe county is rochester doesnt matter if its labeled hamlin greece pittsford..... the only one that is rochester and not in monroe county is victor ......until you get called a city by the state and your seen on the state map then you are in rochester ny when you look on the state map you see rochester not pittsford, not greece!!!!!

Instead of running your fat black racist mouth why don't you post some facts like the ratio of black to white teachers in the RCSD? Or are you saying that the black teachers don't care and hate the students along with the white teachers because they also aren't getting the job done? You have to be one of the biggest idiots on Topix the way you spew you racist rants and never have anything to back them up,oh so typicl of people like you.I know,it is always "whitey's" fault,never anyone else,troll. P.S.,lose the cap lock it just makes you look like a bigger fool as if that could ever happen.

I do know that in suburban schools they have more programs like Drivers ed. Edison Tech is the only city school I know that had that. There are also more laptops in suburbans schools, and I don't even know if that's in the city's budget.

That's because the thugs in City schools would either pawn or exchange the laptops for drugs.

And there you have it folks, the big cop out. Way to go big mouth, typical of you and your racist friends, just point the finger and blame someone else.

Oh big idiot, didn't you go to city schools, remember you have multiple masters degrees and your own company, so I guess whitey didn't fail you after all.......lmao.

like we believe that you have those degrees any ways.

There is enough blame to go around...
Federal control of the local school curriculum,
Unions that prevent administrators from firing bad teachers,
Administrators who will not get rid of a disruptive students because they don't wanna lose state or federal funding,
Parents that aren't around because they have to work two jobs to live up to the lifestyle they see on TV,
Peer pressure from lazy students who berate the ones that study.

I wonder how the homeschooler's graduation rate is?

You made some excellent points!!! It's a cycle from various area's. If you want something different you gotta do something different. It's insanity. Expecting different results with the same behaviors.

Just like the gun violence. As long as those in power and young ignorant knuckleheads continue to allow illegal guns to be freely exchanged in many inner city neighborhoods, your gonna have innocent victims and intended targets. THEY know what they're doing.

Nothing new here...don't know why people act surprised!!!

How did we know you we going to blame the people with "power" as you call it. Reality check for you, the powers to be don't allow it nor do they condone it. Unlike the knuckleheads, the powers to be have to follow strict laws in order to get at those guns, but you would be the first to complain if the police actually did something about it because then you would call it harassment. Make up your mind will ya.
