    J, if you believe both are required you argue for both. Has nothing to do with belief.




    J, you can't be serious or siginificant if you use terms like Marxist and communism. There is no way around that. It is unoriginal and silly to go down that old worn down path. Sorry.
    Says you....But then again who are you?

    Cuts have consequences.
    Sucks for the students and in turn, the future of the country. They should cut funding for testing instead, that would be more productive.

    no, quite the contrary

    in kaukuana, thanks to mature and sober planning, the kids in the classroom have remained untouched as the district's huge deficits turn instantly into surpluses

    teachers started kicking in to their health care and pensions, the district became freed up to look for better coverage, teachers teach 6 classes instead of 5, work an extra 2.5 hours per week...

    class size in kaukauna is going DOWN

    and as for the future of the country, these days it's bottom line

    plans, anyone?

    solutions?

    argumentation?

    Yep. I am at least one of the people talking to you. But, when you spew terms that don't aplly, like Marxist and communism, as nothing done meets the defintion of those terms, you cannot expect to be taken seriously. Sorry.

    Have you ever read the Communist Manefesto? Me thinks not, otherwise you'd never make these foolish statements.
