    Sorry, I'm not taking the bait... You and Redress need to come up with a better strategy to change the topic of discussion, because this one has definitely lost it's effectiveness.

    LOL

    So you bring up a change in the discussion and then duck out when you get called on to back up your [baseless] diversion?

    But you have to realize results don't matter to Obamabots as perception is reality in their world thus this loser continues for four more years destroying the U.S. economy by growing the nanny state

    P.S. You mentioned HISD but did you notice outside the core the little piss ant ISDs? Stafford ISD for example, to the SW by Sugarland.

    EDIT: Getting teachers to work out in Podunk is more expensive than you think. Podunk social life, and often employment opportunity for spouses, tends to be considered substandard.
    Dwight, you're in H-town ?

    Giggity....

    I can't imagine ANYONE in their right mind wanting to send their kids to HISD.....that is unless you want your child to graduate as a FULL FLEDGED moron.

    The "piss ant " ISD's like Friendswood, Katy and a score of higher performing HISD's are actually known for turning out kids who are.......LITERATE.

    WHAT!?!?!

    Is this a ****ing episode of the twilight zone.

    My brain is collapsing in on itself.

    You said the numbers were massaged.

    I said show me proof and I'M CHANGING THE SUBJECT?

    Is it clear to you now why we all know you to be one of the most dishonest posters in this sites history?

    I live to the north up here in the sticks (but not in The Woodlands), no where near HISD really.

    As for piss ant, we were talking size. Stafford ISD is positively tiny. Most people in the city couldn’t tell you where it was. They have a single school for each age group.

    Yes, you are correct....in my best Ed McMahon voice...

    They actually are known for it and also known for being "promoted down" too. That's when they're so ineffective, so incompetent that their superiors promote them to get them the hell away from everybody. Happens allot in City Govt.

    We had a Mayor that used to be the police Chief that could barely string two sentences together. Mayor Harold Brown. The guy was a full on moron and he excelled in local politics.

    Oh ok. Well the smaller School District's seem to fair better academically. HISD was out of control when my Lib parents tried to put in in FLEMMING JR HIGH....Ghetto prison for black kids and unfortunate white kids...

    I showed up for two weeks, convinced them that their little "social experiment" wasn't going to fly and wen't back to private school to continue with my real education in accelerated and gifted courses. 7 th grade in Flemming is about a 3rd grade level. Their accelerated course was 4 rth grade at best.

    HISD is too big and has become unmanageable. Enrolling a kid there is akin to child abuse.

    My understanding is that there are magnet school system but it has become something of a dumping ground and it may indeed be too big to function properly.

    Which of course really screams out for serious reform but the problems also run deeper into the herding that has happened over generations.

    Could have been worse, your parents could have moved a little north and sent you to Adeline ISD. It is on the bubble for dissolution last I heard.

    P.S. A friend of mine works on the east side of town but he is in an ISD charter school (not sure it is HISD, though) which makes it a bit like a magnet school. The benefit for him is that the kids/parents are generally pretty motivated towards school, even if they have whatever learning difficulties, so is somewhat insulated from that. I actually know socially a number of teachers in the various ISDs, it just worked out that way.
