It is time we demand more from the parents of these disruptive students. Some of these children are being given less provisions then we give our dogs, and cats. Then we wonder why the students are not prepared to learn.

Teachers don't get paid jack.
Students are only interested in gettin high or getting laid.
Violence has become more commonplace than hugging.
All television is formed around more sick ideas to entice the youth of America.

I was raised with shows that had good guys and bad guys. We had movies like Superman,Rocky etc. Movies that made you want to root for the good guys.

The children today are watching movies like Jackass and the hangover where partying and doing as much damage to ones self is glorified.

We have done this to ourselves America by not being proper parents. We let our children watch this crap and don't say anything when the censorship of tv is changed so much that they can show naked ass and say bitch and asshole and anything else they want. We need to stand up and fight.

Only in Aryanzona and Mississippi - the two states with the highest dropout rates.

One could convincingly argue these two states have the most ignorant and stupid citizens.

<quoted text>Everything you say is in direct conflict with federal government policy to spend maximum funds to raise performance of the slow learners and deny extra educational efforts to the middle and advanced students so they don't get further ahead of the slow learners. Federal money and federal policy advantages minorities and minorities only.
Throughout our educational system more money and energy is spent upon the slower students. This is very true.

That is because the Professional Politicians tell parents every child should or must have a college education. This is not just a Democratic policy or a Republican policy since both parties are equally guilty on this one.

By privatizing our educational system we open the education of our children to the competitive nature of the Free Enterprise system. The winners will be our citizens and our children while the only loosers will be teachers who are incapable of teaching.

You stupid, ignorant, inbred teabagging goobers have been eating Perry's chit for so long, you can't tell reality from fact. Here are FACTS....

AUSTIN, Texas Some in Texas had talked tough about solving the state's budget problem by austerity alone, but lawmakers finally faced a hard fact: Texas is in serious financial trouble.

The severity of the state's $27 billion budget crisis was evident in the furrowed brows, sad eyes and pained expressions of legislators. They fidgeted in their seats as hundreds of teachers, parents and disabled people explained in testimony in recent weeks how proposed budget cuts would ruin their lives.

Legislatures elsewhere are facing budget problems, but most are blending cuts with asset sales, increased fees and tax modifications to soften the impact. Texas prides itself on lean government so Republicans here promised to solve the crisis here by budget cuts alone.

Then rhetoric hit reality this week. The result was the latest and most vivid example of a state taking steps it had fiercely resisted.

The Republican committee chairman's southern accent turned plaintive as he urged legislators who had campaigned on preserving the state's $9.2 billion Rainy Day Fund to now break that promise to ease the budget pressure.

So, WTF are you taking over?????

SECEDE !!!!!!!!!! Do the nation a favor !!!!!!

Soon, real soon, craphead. We making the cuts necessary, and Perry is not going to panic as the spend tax liberals want. The rainy day fund won't be touched. Watch and learn as the best system in the country works, beavis. New Jersey is following suit, Wisconsin, Ohio and others are taking Perry's lead. That's who we'er taking over. Better get to like it dufus. No more tax dollars for the left.!!!

Texas is going DOWN in welfare recipients and kookoofornia is going UP, dumbass. And so is Maryland by percentage way ahead of Texas.

We on the other hand, have created half the jobs in the US in the last 12 years thanks th Bush and Perry.
