    reality bites dude. we enable too many social pathologies because to many politicians need lots of dependents and helpless people to justify their power hungry policies.

    I can see that TurtleDude, but there are better ways of "rehabilitating" people then throwing them in prison. I mean 80% (Could be more, but I know it is high) return has to scream "We're not doing something right".
    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).

    yep many politicians get wealthy by sticking their greedy beaks into the trough that supplies the public tit. TO justify supplying the public tit, those greedy parasites need lots of people who "need" to suckle on the public tit and will vote for those who supply milk to that tit.

    LOL - "our dropout rate = people who won't work." Absolute, hunh? Drinking some Absolute false assumptions today are we all?

    How many times have we heard the woes of the unemployed college graduates?

    Right now with unemployment being so damn high even the well educated can't secure employment - and you're fussing over the dropout rate? If our education system was better than it is we wouldn't have very many dropouts to speak of because it would be designed to graduate students before they were technically considered *adults* and able to drop theirselves from the system.

    You're looking for flaws and issues - and you're looking in the wrong fishinghole.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    first thing we do wrong is let them drop out...

    If kids quit school, first thing we do is have the IRS disallow them as tax deductions...then kick them off the parents medical insurance.
    If nothing else, that will make the parents reconsider letting them drop out.

    I am not sure that schools should be set up to be surrogate families. I truly feel bad for kids you were born into a lousy environment. That said, life is not fair. Not everyone is average for any number of reasons.

    Absolutely right. Keep on the govt dole and you've got a voter for life. IMO is a govt form of slavery, just dressed up a tad.
