    OK, a new rule. If 5 of your students wind up in prison you go join them in prison. You could spend your long sentence teaching them for when they get out. You could maybe begin by teaching them to say, please and thank you. You could do drills. Make it fun!
    Sorry to hear your educational experience was so terrible. Fortunately, yours is not the norm or anywhere's near close to it.

    At the same high school my daughter graduated with a 4.0 with specialties in Russian language and the advanced associate degree program, parents were complaining how their kids just couldnt get a decent education and thats why they were failing. Huh...go figure...that same school produced Sterling Scholars and some damn good nationally known petrochem scientists...and...me. I wasnt what you would call a stellar student in HS. OK...thats not fair...I did OK...when I went.

    And speaking of Sterling Scholars...

    The flip side to that is that I was asked to interview the Sterling Scholar candidates from a particularly small 1A school this last week. Oh...my...heck. Those kids are going to get killed in the state competition. If those are the best and brightest that school has to offer...well...at some point the responsibility DOES have to rest a little bit with the schools.

    I was fortunate to be educated in Boston, thru high school. I have great respect for those teachers. The public schools were just a lot better than the catholic schools and you had better opportunity to advance to an Ivy league college. The catholic schools had a soccer ball the public schools had a gym and a pool. But many many parents insisted on catholic education. Half my friends.

    So the possibility of having good schools here in New Orleans have been completely ignored, I'll use the race card. The kids, especially the boys are monsters who couldn't find a job if their drug addiction was dependent on it.

    This is one of my most important issues, the slow execution of our young males.

    Hurricane Katrina was a blessing in disguise. It caused a sort of "enough!" attitude of the citizens. They're actually building a new school a few blocks away. There is fighting about what kind of school it will be. The blacks want a KIPP school and the whites want some sort of charter school that has been successful. The whites are those who live in the neighborhood.

    The sound of children playing will be far enough away to be charming. Which makes all the city sounds I hear far away enough to just be charming - trains ships traffic. None a nuance.

    This was a sin and a crime- the neglect and abandonment of our young students. I actually think they should all be compensated in a massive lawsuit. And that includes all of them in prison.
