    I was the victim of one of these new age schools. The administrators made it sound so good, but what it was was a bunch of hippy, PC crap in a pretty building. They eliminated the honors program, denegrated the GT program, pretended to do away with recess while actually just making it boring, split up the grades into "teams" that competed with each other in asinine ways, and refused to properly deal with people who didn't know English. There was a person in my ENGLISH class who was holding back the whole class because he didn't speak English and the teacher wasn't allowed to leave him in the dust and make him catch up. When my team won, I really didn't care that much. It was probably my most miserable year in all of public schooling. All this crap looks good on paper, but in reality, it's bad for the kids.

    Fuck choices for kids. Kids shouldn't be allowed a damn say in how they are educated or raised.

    (shrug).

    My kids will do what i say, when I tell them, or they will learn to cope with consequence. Easy as that. :)
