    I just wanted to take time out to brag on my state.;

    Recently, the legislature and Piyush successfully prevented repeal of a law that gives Louisiana school students a leg up on the world. This law allows teachers in schools to decide to teach the more moden theory of Intelligent Design in class instead of the outdated and unholy theory of evolution. Louisiana senators reject repeal of Science Education Act | NOLA.com So HA HA HA! You're kids will all continue to live in ignorance, while ours are getting the most advanced science available! YES!:clap2:

    Good for you! I heard something else related to Katrina and Louisiana schools the other day. It seems that the Teachers Union is losing its power to keep poor performing, tenured "teachers" from being fired...and when they have to cut down on the staff of teachers, it's NOT first in..last out anymore. Teachers are being kept on the basis of their own performance.

    I haven't found a link to what the radio program presented, but I would be proud of Louisiana for doing this too. More states need to tell the Teachers Unions and the NEA to kiss ass!

    Power? What power? The Teachers Union has no power in Louisiana! That's hilarious. My Aunt is a retired teacher and a liberal, and the teacher's union has so little power in this state that she never even bothered to join.
    LOL! No, they're being kept based on how good the parents of their students are. You teach in a bad neighborhood with shitty parents -you get a pay cut- you teach in a good neighborhood with great parents- you get a raise! That's clearly the solution.
    Yes - the teachers are the ENEMY! Fuck them, they HATE our kids! This is clearly the reason Jindal didn't consult a single teacher in writing his new bill, what do they know about teaching?

    Tell you what - we should fire them all and hire a bunch of righties like yourself to take their place! I'm sure you'd love to go teach in a New Orleans inner city school and you'd have all the kids understanding integral calculus in less than month, that should be easy, right?

    I detect that you have been misinformed...either that or you're just too liberal to save.

    ID is a ruse to get around Edwards v. Aguillard.

    Creationsim is not science it's mythology.

    They passed a school choice bill. Parents can now use vouchers to get kids out of failing schools. It's also more difficult for teachers to retain their tenured status.

    That's the one. I can imagine why the liberals and the old, inadequate teachers are pissed. Thanks. Maybe other states will follow suite and our education system will be improved.

    What does Katrina have to do with this? Just like to make fun of people's misery? Does it make you feel better about your own?
