I can see two sides, and I only passed on what I read about the common core,a bipartisan effort. Look it up yourself.....
When you call names in a discussion you have already lost the battle.

I think most teachers are lazy ( not all) and there for a paycheck. When my son was fourteen years old he sat down at the kitchen table and started crying and asked me if I would teach him how to write. We started out with the ABC's, Why hadn't he learned how to write when he had gone to school for at least eight years? Something went wrong somewhere and I believe it was the school system. I home schooled him after that and he graduated on time. My son's reading and comprehension level was better than average but I had to teach him how to write.
You didn't notice for fourteen years that your kid couldn't read and write? EPIC parenting, there.

I vote for whoever I think is best for the position, GOP or Dem.
Never a straight ticket.
It's literally impossible to have all good in the same party, good and bad in both.
In other words I research candidates before I cast my vote, in both parties.

<quoted text>Agree, yet disagree. I filled a script the other day, looking at it, MD chicken scratch and all, knew it was wrong. 10mg vs. 100mg, big difference. If you blindly trust the MD and RPh to ensure all is well...take a notepad and write down what you hear, if that's what you need to do to ensure your safety. I do acknowledge that I have a medical background so it may be a little "easier" for me to pounce (that word was for Catman and all other kitty lovers) on errors.
Challenge! Next time we see each other you need to sign your last name, see if it makes sense to me in your handwriting.
I guarantee it won't. My kids will give you thumbs up to that. I used to even type their school
excuse notes. Teachers understood they could not forge my sig.
