Does NOT suprise me abit. The educators here are in denial. They will tell you they have the greatest this and that but this report tells you really where it is at. One of the reasons ALL the schools in Garden City are in need of major revamping from getting rid of the administrations to making kids responsible and parents responsible for their kids actions. The kids here know at a very young age that they do NOT need to do anything to be passed on here. That they can just "get by cuz welfare gonna take care of them in the end" becasue children listen to their parents conversation and learn and listen and learn and watch and learn and listen and watch and learn and now at a young age they know how it works in Garden City public schools.

What caring parent would put their child in a state-funded Pre-K program? Just another form of child abuse.

We have a state-funded pre-K here through the special ed co-op and a private preschool. Both are brim full of kids. I see possibilities for both. The private onee can do more extracurricular stuff, but the public one is there for those who can't afford the private one or if they need special help the private pre-K can't offer.

I wouldn't use Chanute as a model for anything. My son Darrel attended school in Chanute and it was the worst thing that ever happened to him. Six month in the 8th grade turned him into a complete homo. I can't stand to be around the little ass bandit, it makes me sick to hear his lisping and watch him as he swings his ass as he walks across the floor.
Chanute is not the school district I live in.

Don't be a dork. Homosexuality doesn't just happen because of a school. There's a predisposition to it in the genes that you gave him. That is if he's really gay. My guess is you couldn't find Chanute on a map as you've never set foot in the town. You're just another trouble making troll with no job and still lives in his Mom's basement at the age of 34.

I know this is off-topic, but you need to read this.

You couldn't get a job at McDonalds and become district manager after 143 days of experience.

You couldn't become chief of surgery after 143 days of experience of being a surgeon.

You couldn't get a job as a teacher and be the superintendent after 143 days of experience.

You couldn't join the military and become even a Seargent after a 143 days of experience.

You couldn't get a job as a reporter and become the nightly news anchor after 143 days of experience.

You couldn't work for a construction company as a laborer and become a journeyman in 143 days.

You can't even get a job with a sanitation company and become the truck driver in 143 days.


From the time Barack Obama was sworn in as a United State Senator, to the
time he announced he was forming a Presidential exploratory committee, he
logged 143 days of experience in the Senate. That's how many days the Senate
was actually in session and working.

After 143 days of work experience, Obama believed he was ready to be Commander In Chief, Leader of the Free World, and fill the shoes of George Washington, FDR, JFK and Ronald Reagan. 143 days.

AND, strangely, a large sector of the Stupid American public is okay with this and campaigning for him. We wouldn't accept this in our own line of work, yet some are okay with this for the President of the United States of America ?

Come on folks, we are not voting for the next American Idol !
