    This is part of the problem.

    This is due to a politically connected union which makes it impossible to weed out the bad teachers_

    There are good teachers but unfortunately when you mix dirty water with clean water you get dirty water_

    All Public Sector Unions should be outlawed and educators compensated by private sector standards_

    Merit based pay is not necessary because without a union, meritless teachers would no longer be tolerated_

    And all educators, whether they teach in The Hamptons or Harlem, should be held to the same standards_

    Of course without parental support there will always be those students who will continue to fail as always_

    Look everyone, I just solved the education problem in the United States, and it was easy__Common Sense_
    This would not be bad except for one problem... The tax base. Property taxes are where most public schools get funding. So if you teach in Harlem vs the Hampton's, your performance means little. This is also why poorer states are being hurt by "No child left behind."

    You solution sounds good on paper minus the "political correct nonsense," and in the end that's about all it would be worth without addressing that.

    No easy fix here.

    I'm not sure you read my post correctly Blacky__School funding and pay were not my primary issues_

    I said teachers should be held to the same standards regardless of whether they teach in The Hamptons or Harlem_

    So if you teach in Harlem vs the Hampton's, your performance means little.
    And I made allowances for this when I stated;
    "Of course without parental support there will always be those students who will continue to fail as always"_

    You solution sounds good on paper minus the "political correct nonsense," and in the end that's about all it would be worth without addressing that.
    And I never mentioned political correctness__I think maybe you mis-read "politically connected"_

    No easy fix here.
    Let me explain to you what really needs to be fixed Blacky_

    If I remember correctly, you have a habit of misinterpreting my posts but I realize it's not intentional_

    Regardless, having to re-explain these things to you is a bit frustrating so I do wish you would try harder_

    Have a nice day_

Any benefits to the individual graduate are cancelled out by his sacrifice and debt.

    #1 Don't ever call me Blacky ever again.
    #2 I know exactly what you said and you finished with...

    Look everyone, I just solved the education problem in the United States, and it was easy__Common Sense_ - Empirica

    So you did not solve anything for the reasons I explained.

    Now that we are clear God bless.

    It is quite common for me to simplify names, no disrespect intended_

    I suppose this is PC issue leftover from the days of white oppression_

    In the future I'll try to be more considerate of your racial sensitivities_

    I certainly wouldn't want to be in violation of any local Hate Crime rules_

    This won't be easy considering Political Correctness is totally alien to me_

    Has nothing to do with being sensitive. I don't call you "Empy" I call you "Empirica." "Blacky" is a damn dog's name, and you meant it as an insult, period. I am Blackdog, which is the English translation of a native American name given to me by my aunt.

    Huge difference between being "PC" and just being a socially inept ass.

    Now can we please move on.
