    Re: Chicago Public Schools' cappuccino bill: $67,000

    You know, I dream of opening a private school, and I have some fairly big ambitions for that school-- big dreams that would require one hell of a budget for equipment, materials, and personnel. Computers, sports equipment, fitness training equipment, high quality nutritious foods, laboratory equipment...

    ... and I'm still not sure I would ever need cappucino machines badly enough to spend $67,000 on them.

    You think that's bad? My wife is one of 'em!

    I grew up on the North Side, but always loved the Sox, so I'm used to it by now.

    I grew up on E. 92nd place. I know, it was rough. My best friend in 3rd grade got shot for not joining a gang by (low and behold) another kid. My parents moved to Park Forest after that. So I got lucky.

    So being the South sider I am, it was the Sox and of course the Bears. Never liked Hockey though so the Hawks got dissed by me.

    Full service K-12 with students grouped by skill proficiency instead of age or grade. Curriculum would be the classic liberal education with an expanded physical education program and more upper level classes.

    Think I'll start a thread about it over in Education.

    Didn't O pick his education guru from Chicago's public school system?

    It's no wonder that today's kids are bouncing off the walls.

    As a recent product of America's public school systems I am ashamed that you guys have not gotten used to this. I mean, honestly, I come from one of the best school districts in North Carolina and our school district is still run by those same people who use words such as "utilize" when "use" would suffice; they think it makes them sound smarter, but all it does is draw attention to their enlarged noses pointing sky-high.
    Our current public school systems needs to be re-vamped. Jesus Christ, middle-School was the biggest waste of three years imaginable... and to think our public school systems spend all these years, and still all creativity is hammered out of students.
