Let's Go Back to Grouping Students by Ability

There are 6 comments on the www.theatlantic.com story from Mar 27, 2013, titled Let's Go Back to Grouping Students by Ability. In it, www.theatlantic.com reports that:

Since the late 1960s, well-meaning educators have shied away from placing kids in "faster" and "slower" classes.

Is it my imagination, or have you noticed that public high school courses that are now called "honors" are equivalent to the regular "college prep" curriculum of earlier eras? And have you also noticed that what is now called "college prep" is aimed largely at students who are deemed low achievers or of low cognitive ability?

If this happened, then 75% of the "slow group" would never get past the 5th grade like in the old days and they would end up getting jobs as moderators for TOPIX. Like Mr. Bill.

Billy, if your geometry skills are anywhere close to the grasp facts to square Øbama administration policy and progressive policy failures, they were about as good as:

You would have been riding the short bus and have to sit with the droolers in the back of the class if people were separated by intelligence!

I think the problem is with SPORTS USA did a mind manipulaiton on children ITS NOT JUST ALL PRO SPORTS no more, money is investied in junior and highschool. After $ years old if your kid is in gear the highschool owns him (As well the coaches daughter puppeteers nobody can have them unitl one ho has them all, then she will tell them who can have them or not.)

MEt one B at Tenney PArk ice skating in MAidson Wisc she wa sthe daughter of the Hockey coach at Lafollette Highschool in 1977 It was our coming out party to pick a mate or meet. I saw her standing in a coat with faux fur around collar and a muff in the middle of the pond, she snubbed my sister, and I was up for the fight, I unzipped my ugly balck sno-mobile suit and tied it aroudn the waste took off my sweater and put it on my head like a rich girl turban and walked on ice to challenge. The Hockey coach got pissed nobody can have these boys he OWNS them and he threw the puck in the hole in the ice and I had to blcok the boys like robots they went for it, and damn near went in I Had to trip the dive. The coach looked at their fathers that were awe struck and said SEE MY POWER ILL KILL them I own them thru 12th grade and if I make it to UW I own them then too.

As well School DIstrict PAId kids to drop out, people can graduate until 25 year of age, molesting and stalking children in the highschool locker rooms and raping minor kids the hole way to their SCHOLORSHIP no boy of 18 graduating got one, all the 25 year olds did LOOK AT FRANK REUTER IN SERVICE HIGH ANCHORAGE ALASKA he was one of them. Plus I was a Brian and Head injury and he pulled my head off the spine enirely, I am working with Upper Cervical center now tryign to get it back on, I only have 20% body functioning then a normal person.

Bad people all aroun dand it isnt USA check YOUR OWN countries air flgihts out to see who is checking out childrne and pimping them in sports and others. Take them down at the airports do a brain Imagery scan in airspce to search intent and arrest before they hit US territorial waters. DAMN terrorist killers no wonder we have war every 3 years.
