    BTDT, thanks for saying what you think I think, but you don't have it right. So how about responding to what I say rather than the words you've put in my mouth. Here are some other facts to...

    I home schooled one of my children for 2 years. He is a bright guy with high functioning autism. Our local middle school had a number of issues and not much of a special ed program. I found...

    Do you see that optimizing working conditions for teachers and maximizing state funding are directly related? There are all kinds of euphemisms for this; fully funding education, keeping money in...

    Grading on a curve is entirely appropriate when;
    1) there is a random distribution of abilities among students
    and
    2) teachers are competent to actually teach and write a good test or confident...

    This is addressing the wrong topic in education. Percentages are arbitrary and don't really matter. For example, if you are teaching intermediate algebra but write an exam more appropriate to...

    That is a gross oversimplification of a lot of complex factors and completely disregards the fact that humans (some of them anyway) have the capacity for rational thought and behavior.

    I am not the one playing "what if" here. Another poster suggested that abortion prevents unwanted and "ruined" children from being brought into the world, which is kind of laughable when you think...

    Obama was born in 1961, his mother was a teenager. It is pretty safe to assume her pregnancy was, if not unwanted, unplanned. She didn't have the option of getting an abortion legally. The world...

    So what you are saying is arming the rebels was thought to be a bad idea at the time (and was probably against the law) and they did it anyway unofficially? That is supposed people think more highly...
