This reminds me of something funny my kids did many years ago the first time they used spell checker.

They were around 4th and 5th grade and their spelling was horrible. There were words that were so far off spell checker didn't have any suggestions for correction. Ben stepped in as a creative problem solver to help his sister out. Any word that they couldn't find in the dictionary just got added. Problem solved... it was in the dictionary so it wasn't wrong any more. :rolleyes: :D

She spent the next 10 minutes listening to my going off on her. Then we got home and mom heard the story and spent another 20 minutes in discussion. Think she got the point. It helps that a good friend of hers family is going through a real tough patch right now. Tomorrow all this could poof, disappear. But I rant too much, LOL

For reference, I vote for the person not the party, but in EXTENSIVE discussions with a friend on education it appears someone has had a NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND platform that has went no where for 8 years now. Didn't think Hillary or liberals was driving this Major platform for Bush for the past two elections.

However, these guys have it together, started in Chicago.
http://www.providencecristorey.org/

I'm Catholic and generally do not support Catholic schools, but this program is great, goes into really bad neighborhoods and turns out quality kids.

Charter schools and other private schools have underperformed in every metric I have seen. I can share if you like, but they are not doing well. The charter schools in Indy/Carmel are not schools I would want my kids in. Plus the Catholic schools here screen and pick the top students so they should have a scoring advantage.

PS: I'm a strong public school supporter, if you want to go to private school, great, but everyone needs a quality education, it is what differentiates us from low labor rate nations. We need everyone to have a Masters degree now or else they will not make it in today's society....

I dont know the cause of the current dilemma, but there is one indeed. Our math and science foundations have been traded for something. I am not sure what we gained in the trade. We most certainly did not gain an understanding of absolute right, wrong, and truth. I fully agree that we must continue to drive our public education system toward excellence. My boys are in public school, and there is absolutely no substitute for parental involvement.

I've many contacts in the public school system. It's ashame what they do with the money they're handed, but at least here in Texas, we cannot blame it all on the feds. We've woven all these weird standards and testing webs which have increased beuracracy and not increased educated kids.

If we're going to trash the system, I want to add that over the past 20years, hands on skills have dropped from the curriculum here. Wonder why nothing is manufactured in the US anymore? Our schools seem to be telling all our kids that they need to be writers, professionals, computer techs, but NOT builders, skilled laborers etc.
An old teacher friend once told me " some of them are just going to change your oil" while I thought it was funny as hell, his point was that we don't need to tell EVERY kid that he will be a lawyer or a network engineer....

Blame no child left behind if you want, but it's more than that. No child left behind is nothing more than a federal bandaid to the problem, I think. Federal programs do not work.

So to sum up, the world needs oil changers, too, Danny! - Judge Schmails, III

I always saw "NCLB" as the federal version of what was implemented in Texas all those years ago. My wife taught for a while before going to law school. She found it frustrating that (1) they were told to "teach the test" and (2) the kids had no interest in writing anything (just wanted the multiple guess). Long story short, one of her students asked her to prom, she declined and, ultimately, went to law school.

No, we don't need more lawyers.

In my opinion, the root of the cause is a lack of school funding and THE PARENTS. My girlfriend is a first grade teacher at an elementary school in an upscale neighborhood in Orange County. Here, school funding is a direct derivative of property values/taxes, hence the wealthier areas have more funding. Even in an area with a median home price of $800,000, my girlfriend is allotted $125 for her classroom for the year. Last year, her first year of teaching, she spent over $1,500 of her own money, buying supplies for her classroom. If parents would send their kids to school with pencils & pens... maybe a marker or two, it would really benifit the system and help the already underpaid teacher out. Which leads me to my next point... the parents.

Many student's parents do not put ANY effort into the schooling of their children. They believe that they send them off to school, the kids learn at school and when they come home from school, that the educating STOPS. Last June, I helped her do some grading around report card time. I was a amazed to see how much better kids did on tests and STANDARDIZED tests when there parents did the simple task of correcting their child's homework on a nightly basis. You could actually see on kids math homework, where the parents had sat down with the kids, erased wrong answers and corrected them. The kids whom parents did this for them would outperform the kids whom parents did not by an amazing amount!

In my opinion, too much emphasis is put on the government to provide schooling... they just need to provide the funding and facilities. More emphasis needs to be put on making kids a priority and reinforcing what the kid has learned that day in school, that night at home.

Not in Texas they spread it all around and bring the whole system down! They spend 7,000 a year here on students, With a monopoly on students that sounds like plenty of cash. 1/4 million for the football coach cuts into the teachers salaries though.

She has never been allowed to speak that way. Up until this incident, it's always been a minor incident, which was immediately dealt with.

Reaming her rear for an hour is totally inaffective. She tunes me out, blah blah blah, after about ten minutes. She gives mom about 15 minutes. I've learned to recognize the symptoms and deal with that too. The oldest is a parenting challenge...

Few years ago, I graded a math teachers grading and sent it back to him. I wanted to see why or how the oldest managed 58%. Teacher had several grading errors, didn't make much of a difference in the final grade, but he actually started giving her additional assistance recognizing that we were concerned parents.

I think some problems kids have with spelling and reading come from strange trendy things schools try. When my kids were learning to read and spell they were taught with the "whole language" approach which included inventive spelling. I would have to say it was a failure. Both of my kids have terrible spelling even now at college age.

If there's one thing my wife has taught me, consistency and firmness. There's a reason she has the reputation of being the B!tch in our small town. Doesn't put up with crap from anybody.


How did the whole commission crap end up or don't I dare to ask?

I think some problems kids have with spelling and reading come from strange trendy things schools try. When my kids were learning to read and spell they were taught with the "whole language" approach which included inventive spelling. I would have to say it was a failure. Both of my kids have terrible spelling even now at college age.

Ya see, that's just wrong right there. "inventive spelling" ???? There was "New Math" when I was in school...that was a hoot. It lasted about a year before they pulled it. Oh, and my co-workers kids go to a school where they don't give bad grades...***???? So, what....NOBODY fails math???? EVERYBODY graduates???? Even if they can't read/write????????? :rant:

And here's what's happening to schools in my town, which I thought were pretty good...

She drives very well. We have not ventured into the slalom course yet, but free skiing has been great. I taught her "straight lines and quick turns." Her family has an '06 Super Air N***que, so she has been well taught... she even knew how to use Perfect Pass without me teaching her!

She has officially resigned, I'll have more to offer in a week or two. She filed a formal complaint against one of the other council members, under the direct advice and supervision of the city attorney. Council as a group decided to not take any action, and in her resignation said her integrity would not be compromised by a council that fails to follow either their own policies and/or laws. There was a very specific reason why the formal complaint was made, and why it was done under the close supervision of the attorney.
