I bet it's the states fault for the low scores. They shouldn't have to take it if they don't know the material anyway.

Stupid schools helps create stupid kids.

Idiot parents are also to blame.

Don't forget the bureaucracy that the department of education has on the creative teachers that want to teach.
The structure of school funding that keeps school administrators from throwing out disruptive students because they don't wanna loose funding.
And the teachers unions who keep us from firing lousy teachers and promoting the good ones.

How much education does it take for a functionally illiterate, RCSD grad to print his name on a Democrat Party enrollment form?

State Tests have been around before Cuomo took office. It's been a procedure done since the cold war at least. And there's republicans that make silly decisions too that Weiner guy pretty sure he's in the GOP.

Great post!

And a great example of education in our country prior to the marxist|liberal infestation of our educational system.

I spend a lot of time searching for info on the internet and occasionally I stumble over letters written home by Civil War Infantrymen (canon fodder). Without exception the letters were written in a neat cursive style and not a misspelled word could be found. Proper grammar is a mystery to me so I can't comment on grammar in those letters.

Fast forward to the 21st century: The marxists|liberals infesting our educational system are pushing to do away with Cursive Writing skills. Many school districts no longer teach it and many others are moving in that direction.

The reason usually given is Cursive Writing skills are no longer necessary in our modern world, much like math skills in a world of pocket calculators. The truth is the coddled, entitlement-minded little darlings just can't grasp it, so let's lower the bar to something they can grasp, like block printing.

In my time, printing was taught in 1st grade, so that should give you some idea of where standards will bottom out, once our educational system reaches 3rd world status.

Why does every single thread turn into liberal this, liberal that? It's ridiculous. Both parties have slews of low information voters - voting for Obama because he's black, uninformed southerners voting Republican because pa told them so and they'll get a switch taken to him if they don't.

You're right. There are two extremes: the city school districts that are in a downward spiral, and some suburban districts where administration bows to the uppity parents because their kid gets too much homework.
There are plenty of districts that aren't out of control, but those two issues are a huge problem.

"uninformed southerners voting Republican because pa told them so" is a new one on me. I suspect you made it up as you went along.

I did know Clinton and Obama are Dems too. They both served as presidents after a Bush was in office.

My question is, why is a Dem running against a Dem?(Weiner vs. Spitzer)

Weiner and Spitzer are not running against each other. Weiner is running for Mayor of New York City and Spitzer is running for New York City Comptroller.

Are you aware the earth is really flat?

That's right.

The pics you see from assorted satellites and the Space Station have been photoshopped. When the poop hits the prop on this one, a lot of heads are going to roll at NASA.

Well that's smart of Spitzer to run for Comptroller now instead of mayor. I thought he was still running for that since that's what was on TV. guess they had wrong info or were outdated. And the earth is round. Not flat.

I honestly think Das Right Chillen is wrong about the earth. However I did read that Spitzer was running for comptroller now so that part is definately true.

Having travelled here from Cybertron(a short layover on Mars) I can personally attest that the Earth is neither flat nor circle. It is more specifically an oblate spheroid, due to the rotation the middle bulges and the top and bottom flatten.
I believe kids in the city schools would do better on the tests if they studied instead of practicing the "dances" that look like violent rape. Just sayin.

And, no, I'm not lying to you now.
