    So....it's the government's job then to "teach" our kids discipline?

    The interesting thing is that cities with protection for gay workers have been proven to bring in new businesses and educated workers.



    Oh, and as long as that law is on the books in Tennessee, I'll drive hundreds of miles out of my way to avoid going through Tennessee and giving them a penny of my money.
    So much for small government

    On topic: Can someone explain what rights/privileges were taken away? Can they still negotiate pay and get protected from incompotent power driven pricpals who only care about "being king of the castle?"

The ones who are past caring, past fixing and won't stop disrupting other's ability to learn... permanent expulsion and that without delay.

    You can't teach without order, without the teacher being in control of the classroom.

    Once upon a time we had a reasonable degree of order in school. We can do it again. It doesn't take money, just a little hard-headed common sense.
    No.

    No one puts hand on the Mayor's kid if they want to keep it attached to their elbow.

    If there's a discipline issue, the Mayor gets a phone call, the Mayor deals with it. If that doesn't work, the student is expelled, and then the Mayor has to deal with that.

    If a parent won't discipline their child, then there's an issue for the proper authorities to get involved with. The school classroom is not the proper place. The other students should not be punished, by losing class time, because some parents will housebreak their puppies but not their children.

    The definition of reasonable wages and benefits is defined by the free market with free competition.

    Awesome! In 2001, Tennessee had one of the worst high school graduation rates in the country. They made changes and the graduation rate shot up to nearly 75%, which beats the national average.

    I'm glad to see that they are addressing the problem of improved graduation rates and seeking to sink to the bottom that they were scraping a bit over a decade ago.

    Let me guess... Republicans are in charge and they are trying to funnel more money into charter schools. C'mon, tell me I'm wrong.

One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
