    Remember, if Jimmy Carter thinks it's a good idea, it probably isn't.

    Jesus Christ man!!

    What on Earth are you doing up at this hour? What am I doing up at this hour?

    I say we forget these English papers and hit the hay.

    But yea your right, if I were him and everyone was this pissed, I'd just go with the flow. Its not like letting another company have the contract is a bad thing.

    Slightly off topic. Boortz was just saying parents who send their children to government schools are child abusers. He'll probably have some angry parents call in now.

    So you now have read the complete agreement between DPW and the United States? Post it so we can all read it and see what the facts are.

    He was just saying the teachers union has ruined public schools. He was talking about the statistic that the people who become education majors are overwhelimingly from the lower ranks of their high school graduating class. He was also mentioning that the criteria for doing well in teacher training was philosophy and attitude. Not grades. He was reading from some education programs own literature about it. Let me see if I can find it.

    I couldn't find what he was citing. Another big point, though, was that you have to be an EDUCATION major to be be teacher, even if you have great command of a specific subject. THere was a caller who called in who was a math major and it was hard for her to get a job to teach math even though she was amazing at it, the jobs went to education majors. This keeps a lot of gifted people with deep knowledge out of the classroom and it's really a tragedy.

    Education majors teach only ps-9. In IL, it's pretty much subject majors 6-12, called a type 9 certification: 3 ed classes and 1 semester student teaching.
