Tell me, how much money do you make off welfare each month. I know you have never worked, all you do is lay on your back and then a kid pops out. You cost the taxpayers of NM a ton of money. We pay your hospital bills, feed you and your brood, and then you demand for us to pay to educate you. Move to California, there are all kinds of mexicans there to impregnate you.
Obviously you do not know me. I never worked huh? LOL, that is funny since I started working at age 14. No one pays for my education but me. Your comments are just too ignorant. All I can do is laugh at you.

<quoted text> Most of the kids that come from a broken home are loners, won't talk much and have very low self esteem, they are also the ones who are regularly late for practice and their parent is the last one to pick them up after practice. They do not listen to instructions and have very little motivation.
Is THAT all you are going from? And THESE type of kids NEVER have BOTH parents in the home? I am a single parent and my kids are NOT like that. lol. And when my kids went to practice they were NEVER late, I NEVER left them there alone, NEVER was the last one to pick them up, they listened, are very motivated, and have good GPA's. And are NOT loners. You have A LOT to learn. Try getting an education and learning about psychology, blended family homes, and less attitude. The way you are, I can bet your kids dislike a lot about you and so does your wife.

The last team I coached,we had 17 kids,13 kids were from broken homes,THAT IS A PROBLEM. It is not fair to the kids for parents to do that,and we wonder why our children act out and are failing school. It's like I stated earlier,it is the parents who are to blame,but you and most of these other posters would rather blame it on the school, you are too stupid to realize the REAL PROBLEM.All I am saying is,IT STARTS AT HOME. As for my family,we are fine,my kids hate me so much that they choose to hang out here ,with their friends 24-7,we are a very close and strong family,and we discuss EVERYTHING,we hide nothing from each-other. I would hate to see your family get togethers,it must be like a circus. Nelson must be proud. You have no idea what I have study, I don't have to try and prove my self worth to anyone,unlike some people on here.And I surely don't have to justify my family life ,or the fact that I have been happily married to THE SAME PERSON ,for over 23 yrs.

Haha your funny! Puts up a good front?? Please! She is genuine thru and thru. Fighting for more play time?? I'm sorry but my tax dollars shouldn't go so your kid can have more play time at school! They are there to learn and I'm sorry but not all decisions are made by the principal, she has a superintendent and several other bosses she answers to that ultimately make those kind of decisions. If you have a problem with her go to the school board, but I'm sure you will find that she has over whelming support from the community and her staff!
superintendent did not even know she did it, and yes kids need time to play and cool their jets, they work very hard over there and are very busy, but they also need to have breaks. The elementary kids had more breaks then ECEC that year and she did the changes without anyone knowing. It was when Williams was still here. And yes we did talk about it. She was not happy at all that I had proof in hand that kids need to have breaks at that age. My tax dollars pay for schooling as well and trust me, I am not wanting my tax dollars to go to schools that can't even rate a C on the scale. Did you look at the percentage rates? Come on any school should be able to at least get a C! I tell my kids they need to do the best that they can and they get on the honor roll each semester, we should expect our schools to do the best that they can as well. A track record will prove what I am talking about. The scores at ECEC keep going down each year. Misty needs to reconsider what she is doing over there or move out of the way and allow someone to come in and do what is needed for our kids.

I have NO IDEA what the hell you are talking about with me blaming other kids late to practice on the schools. I was NOT ever referring to practice of any sort. Actually, my dad IS proud of his grandkids and me. I do NOT give a damn who you have been married to, as it still DOES NOT mean a thing. That is funny that you do NOT know me, yet bring my dads name into this, but you are too chickenshyt to state yours. That is ok though because your momma raised you to be a wuss. I truly doubt your kids and their friends hang out with you 24/7...you must lie to your self a lot. I NEVER said it didnt start at home with the kids. I already stated that it started at home and parents need to get involved with their kids. That is sad that 13/17 kids are from broken homes, but you go off of parents being late to their practice as being from a broken home and have no other data to go off of.

I forgot to write that my kids are not failing in school. I am not proving my self to you or anyone else. You think you are just above and beyond everyone else just like your daughter that got suspended for having piercings at school and didnt think she should be because she got good grades. Wow, you discuss everything>>>must be pretty sick to discuss your sex life with your kids. Shouldnt your sex life NOT be their business? Perhaps your kids still sleep in the same bed as you and your wife as well. I hope you dont have sex in front of them as well and teach them that too! I am thinking your family is a little, or a whole lot off with you putting everything in upper case letters.

YOU are the one who wrote that you and your family do not keep anything from each other, that you talk about EVERYTHING, and your kids hang out with you 24/7. I'm not sick, you are the one who tries to make yourself better than what you are. You bring up my kids and try to get others to think I have 4 diff fathers of my 4 kids and I eat gov. Cheese. What, you can't handle your own bs games? You were the 1 who wrote that your child got suspended for wearing piercings to school and didn't think she should have received suspension because of her grades. And you wrote about her missing school and kept up good grades. If you can't handle having smack talked back to you, then don't talk smack because I can play your little "I'm better than all" game and beat you at it. Maybe you should watch what you write and consider your real meaning when you do write. Just becaue people don't do all what you say, or live like you think that isn't breaking the law doesn't mean all are wrong. I think people know what a family is and what it consists of. As for me, I will say this I pay for my education, not you. I have made mistakes and just because I'm not with my kids father doesn't mean I should have stayed to be abused as I didn't enter it in an abusive state. My kids are loved, pass school, are smart, are into sports, aren't from a broken home, are very well taken care of, has a mother that has worked all of her life, has an education, teaches them to not put up with bs assholes like you and always take up for their selves with either bullies, and or what they believe in as long as it is morally right! It is people like u who are men that I am glad I don't have u as a husband because like I wrote before, being married doesn't mean all is peaches N cream, all smells like roses, and walks on gold with every step, but can be hell, which I don't doubt is what your family is like. And you can talk smack about me being a single parent, I don't care for I am mentally and physically more stronger than what your lame, and sorry pos ass will ever be!

So I take it your the person that had the article put in the paper couple years back? Looks like she had the school system behind her on it. It's sad you have nothing Better to do with your life but worry about things like this. If your so passionate about the schools run for a seat on the school board, but doubt you would, you seem to like to do things from behind a key board.

Nope, it was not me. However I learned of her stunts through the article in the paper, and then asked our child's teacher if it was true or not. When confirmed true I did go to Misty and Williams about it. And guess what, I would go to her again about her choices, just look where they have lead her now, a D. I believe in doing things in person not just on the keyboard, but if no one is going to stand up for the kids then it is a sad day in Carlsbad. Our kids need an education, one that is well rounded, we need our kids to be able to love school and want to be there. just going to school k-12 is not good enough any longer, you really need a good college degree to go places and if our kids are sick of school and don't enjoy to learn then they will never want to go to college. Our kids need the support of their parents, community, and schools. Someone needs to want what is best for them.

We are blessed to have Mr. White as our children's principal now and guess what! You can talk to him and he listens. He will tell you his reasons for a decision and explain it and if you don't like it you are able to talk to him about why you don't like his choice and he will actually hear you and consider it! He may not sway from his decision but at least he listens. Now he is one that actually thinks about the kids in his school and really works hard to make decisions that will help the kids. I may not agree with him on all things at Sunset but at least he is willing to listen and actually takes the time to listen! He is a good asset to Carlsbad.

Thank you, I am not a bad person, MLE1 just brings out the worst in me for some reason.haha. I am not implying that all singe parent homes are broken just that most are. My main complaint is that most people don't think about all of the issues before having children. I also know from my coaching that there are a few,(very few) single mothers ,or fathers,that are able to handle the task of filling the void when a dead beat parent walks out, so congrats to you.

The grading system instituted by Secretary-Designate (she hasn't even been confirmed by the legislature) is a crock of crap. It is based on a bell curve. So even if all the schools scored 70 or above, someone is gonna get an F and someone is gonna get a D. There is no way to really win. And looking at standardized test scores is not an accurate way to see if teachers are teaching. It shows how well kids take a test that lasts 3 days. That is not to say there aren't bad teachers who shouldn't be anywhere near a classroom, but this system punishes those teachers who do their jobs and do them well.
