    I'm very familiar with it. I'm a teacher. I've worked with the special little buggers and sat through plenty of IEP meetings. I'm not kidding when I say I love them; they have a special place in my heart. That doesn't change my mind, though.

    How come you didn't fix the problem? You made it worse. We have become almost toally kiss azz to the students and many of the parents with the taxpayer skewered more and more. Some of that federal trillion dollar deficit right there. then the state and local bondage the taxpayers pay for comes into play.

    I'm willing to believe that is part of it. To believe that is all of it, I would need to see some detailed comparisons.

    If that is all it is, the gap seems LESS than you would expect.

    My wife just had surgery, and for the last two weeks I have been doing everything.


    People that try to have a family, by themselves, set themselves and their children up for failure.

    We have school choice in California. It was great, as a parent, almost too many charter schools to choose from. After the hippy charter school experience my kid chose to attend the mainstream High School so she could do sports and band and be part of a large grade class, that was good too.

    To me, the only thing that the school authority figures should be responsible for is making sure that these problem children are not getting away with whatever it is that they are guilty of. If any kids cause big enough problems on the school properties, them kids should either be suspended or expelled or even arrested if their physical choice of action, should they be guilty of any, is violent or sexual enough. Of course right there is where it gets interesting because one person's level of severity is not going to mirror another person's level of severity.

    God bless you and every school worker always!!!
