    However, in any given school district the tax payers usually pay the same tax rate and should (but not always) get the same quality of education. (In California, this gets more complicated because the property tax rate is not equal for all due to prop. 13, which favors those who have lived in the same house for a long time with a lower tax rate.)


    *or even better, funding per pupil should be higher for schools with children with backgrounds that make education more challenging; such as children in impoverished areas, high crime areas, many students who don't speak English at home, nomadic families (like farm workers) etc.
    Since Proposition 13 passed some 35 or so years ago, schools have been funded by the State of California. Take out federal "special programs" money, and they are being funded more or less equally, yet the outcomes are not the same. The bottom line is that children of poverty are much more difficult to teach than are middle class children. Add to that the schools in poorer neighborhoods tend to get the less experienced teachers as most of them (except for a few true heroes who are dedicated to teaching inner city kids) put in for transfers to suburban schools as soon as they get a little seniority.

    Just the "Christ" part. That the Jesus man existed is probably not in dispute.

    Re: Woman fired for having sex

    After some times has gone by my only remaining thoughts are:

    If you don't want to be judged for it then don't let it be a part of any CLAUSE IN YOUR STUPID EMPLOYMENT OR EDUCATION CONTRACT.

    You can't sign off on that contractual **** and then when you're busted go 'oh wait - but it's wrong to judge me...' By signing the contract you're saying "it's ok to judge me"

    I think this is what's called a no-brainer. . . doesn't matter what's right or wrong - if you agree to it contractually then you're stuck with it. If you don't agree to it contractually then don't SIGN the contract.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Because she signed a contract. She is the one who agreed to uphold a certain standard of conduct, and she is the one who broke it. She effed up, not the employer.

    She didn't HAVE to work there, ya know. No one does. If you don't like the contract, don't sign it.

    That's the thing though, whether you agree with it or not, we do have laws that prevent an employer from writing contracts that discriminate for a lot of reasons. I could possibly get on board with the 100% right to contract, but as of now that doesn't exist. Instead we have discrimination laws that are applied unevenly. Just to name a few of the things that can't legally be discriminated against: (according to the EEOC)

    - religion
    - race
    - gender
    - age
    - sexual orientation
    - disability
    - genetic disease
    - pregnancy
    - childbirth

    Whether we should allow such things to be discriminated against or not doesn't matter for this particular conversation. As of now these things ARE protected under discrimination laws. Seeing as how that's true, why should private, natural, sexual activity not be covered? If she made up a religion saying she had to have pre-marital sex, why would that suddenly make it a protected act? So why do we allow religions to get away with anything, but not natural human behavior that is the sole reason why we exist in the first place?

    Have you emailed your member of congress? I'd get on to it right away, not a moment to loose. Personally, I'm rather appalled you would discriminate against unnatural sex acts though.

    So why do we allow religions to get away with anything, but not natural human behavior that is the sole reason why we exist in the first place?
    Have you ever considered writings a high school biology textbook? You are of course totally right: we are only here because our ancestors were promiscuous. They had children all over the place and this is why we're here. Some nasty fascists might point out that we're also here because our ancestors brought up those children in relatively stable and coherent families, but don't listen to such nonsense: promiscuity is a civil and natural right, amend the constitution now!

    Amend the constitution? Do you seriously think race, religion, sexual orientation, or gender are protected by the constitution in the work place?

    Discrimination laws have nothing to do with the constitution. All I'm concerned about is as long we do have discrimination laws, why do people who believe in a magical sky man get special privileges, while others who have intercourse in the privacy of their own homes have no such priviliges? People need to just start making up bull**** religions in order to have their basic human actions covered.

    I'm in total agreement. Promiscuity, and protection from its consequences, is a civil, human, natural, and galactic right! We are only here because our ancestors were smart enough not to be fooled by fascists into giving up on free love or being tied down to actually look after their children in a stable family after they were born.

    The freedom from consequences is the most important of all freedoms!
