WTH is going on @ FRA?

If only it could be done....I am not really negative, just a realist. The system here is pulled down from the top and bottom and those of us in the middle get squeezed  (Jun 28, 2012 | post #103)

It's awesome the way you read a short opinion that I gave, call me a schoolyard name and vomit out a statement that shows off mucho class envy. I'm far from rich, I just chose to pay for my kids education rather than let them get the substandard "free" education they offer in this parish. I know a lot of folks that rail against the private schools and having to pay tuition but will drop that 5G on a hunting lease, have a new truck every 2 years and head to Destin every year...with the state of the schools here, where are your priorities? I really really wish I could have used the public system...I pay the taxes and vote for whomever I think would do the best job but you will never, ever find me throwing my kids into any situation that the tide is against them. What this parish needs is a wholesale clean out of the board, the top admin staff and some good leaders in the system. What this system needs is parents who place a priority on their kids' education and not on the number of heads on the wall. We need parents who send their kids to school to learn, not to baby sit and who support the school and actually care. So, señor name-caller, you and your pals who think they can do all that go solve these issues and have a great system. Maybe my grand kids will benefit.  (Jun 24, 2012 | post #101)

I'm glad you and/or your husband know me...but my comment was not personal. If you are so worried about "my head being up my ass", then bring some wisdom to me to help pull it out. My mind is not closed, my eyes are quite open....and what I see is a school system run by politics instead of what is best for the kids and the community. The system is so devoted to the "fairness " doctrine that the kids that could really thrive with just a tweak of rules enforcement, can't. In other words, this system is so worried about being unfair to those who don't try and learn that they hold back the majority who could really, really get a good quality education. I see all the anecdotal evidence...the 2-3 kids per year that come out of the public system here as real performers and I applaud that. But the PC system has only that, anecdotal stories. What they do have a lot of, however, is the politicians pointing fingers and trumpeting how much better it'll be next time. If you want to put your kids into that mess, go ahead, use them to make things better. I'll take the safe way, work harder to pay and put my kids in a situation that, while far from perfect, gives them the opportunity to learn. We owe our kids a good education and sadly, the public schools here don't give them that.  (Jun 24, 2012 | post #100)
