    They are really showing those Blue States how it's done!
    35th out of 50 in participation. It still doesn't mean much, except that they don't take the damn test.

    You know dam well no father in the home results in many of the social ills affecting everything from "Smarter to a fifth grader" to teen pregnancies and certainly education. Including knowing the father of our nation.

    I need no straw man, you haven't even reached straw status, both you and I know I'm right.
    After reading through your debate with Ego, I must say...I see the words you're typing, but all I can read is "BAAAWWWW! MY DADDY NEVER HUGGED ME!"

    This real folks, and no one seems to mind....

    The majority of Americans are against health care reform you say?

    The majority of Americans don't know who George Washington is either...

    I got a kick out of this anectode regarding the students in one of the most conservative states in America as well:

    "About 92 percent of the people who take the citizenship test pass on their first try, according to immigration service data. However, Oklahoma students did not fare as well. Only about 3 percent of the students surveyed would have passed the citizenship test."

    11 percent also thought the two major political parties in the US were Communists and Republicans. Source: Here
    Not surprised at all. That is leftist edjucasion for ya. Thems unions teechers are doin the best werk foer are youngins.

    Immigrants are 4 times more likely to become millionaires.
    They haven't been brainwashed to look to the government... Mommy Dearest for "help", low cost loans, handouts left and right.

    My brother yanked his kid out of the state system. He is one of the lucky ones.

    True. Except for the fact that the entire "study" appears to have been completely and utterly inaccurate.

    But other than that, your point's spot-on.

    Wow. 14 of the 17 worst states (the bottom third) for ACT score are red and the top 17 states (the top third) are ALL blue. I knew there was a gap in the quality of education between democrat and republican states, but had no idea it was that stark...

    All the content concerning my father aside, you're not going to take issue with this...you know I'm right.
    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.
