APNewsBreak: Nearly 1 in 4 fails military exam - Yahoo! News
Well, that's not good to say the least.
Thats just part of the problem, more than half the kids than come in there are also overweight and cannot pass the physical tests, thats why recruiters have started having recruits do PT NOW before they even go to basic, they weren't doing that when I joined 10 years ago.
hmmm i am sorry that was directed at you....i use the word ****** ....but not directed towards anyone person...
remember it does not matter what you are called...it matters what you answer to
i cannot fathom what is happening in our educational system .....its really sad..when you cant do ..simple math
And yet we are spending more than double (in constant $) per pupil on education than we did 40 years ago.
What's changed - more federalized control, union activism, and nanny statism.
What hasn't changed is the kids that do well have involved parents.
The reason I put that as my sig is because Muslims claim that Islam has no racism like in the West, but alot of Muslims do have low opinion of black people. People need to know the truth.
It's obvious on this MB, even on this page, that not only is our system of education broken, but the cultural norms and even basic courtesy has eroded to further divide our nation.
Our soldiers murder civilians, posters use racial ephitaphs, and simple solutions to complex problems are offered because the boediccas of the world can't fathom cause and effect.
"What hasn't changed is the kids that do well have involved parents"
Ahh now we find the root of the problem.
You can spend all the money you want on new schools and such but if the parents do not take part it is money down the drain.
Identifying a problem is a first step, fixing a problem takes a bit more effort. The root of the problem is not limited to single parenting, or absent parenting by will or need.
Suggesting any single cause for the effect limits critical thinking an problem solving.
No not the single cause, but if parents took an active interest in their childs education I think they would work to resolve the other causes.
I do view parents using schools as babysitters as the main/root cause.
