    Awfully decent of Burke to give the kid half credit. But I still think that the American education system is becoming more of a joke.

    Particularly by teaching religion in schools and banning science.

    Well done, Pastis. The kid used all of the words in his sentence. Euphemism-Spraying paint- Graffiti, Appliance/Authority- Jimmy was the tool used to rebel against society, decent- he justified hs answer as being passable,

    Wei Shen – The problem with Education is that public education is now required to teach to the lowest common denominator. Religious schools don’t have to abide by the public education rules. As a result, their students consistly score higher on college entrance exams. Science, too.

    The pain in sprain is mainly in the brain….Not true, but I’m proud of myself anyway…and of the dang ol’ country. We saw through the BS and did the right thing, instead of the right wing…Kudos…

    Actually, the private schools do better than the public schools. The public schools, you are not allowed to give F’s because that would emotionally scar the child. You cannot give A’s for the same reason. You cannot hold back a child no matter how stupid or lazy they are. You must teach political correctness and cultural acceptance. No real educating is allowed. Do not blame religion for the polical correctness and mandatory racism forced upon the children by liberals.

    Which is why the religious schools are now being considered racist and elitist by liberals.

    Have you read the textbooks lately?

    @zoidknight Half the things you’re complaining about are the result of No Child Left Behind, and the other half don’t exist. How is that the fault of liberals?

    Which schools do the liberals send their children to?

    “Well done, Pastis.”
    Pastis? You’re looking for Pearls Before Swine. You should’ve made a left turn at Albuquerque.

    I was lived in Bronx and I never talked like that. But then the educational system back then was better than it is now.

    Texan at Heart: No, private schools look better because they can kick out any kid who does not conform. Their product makes more money because they started out rich. And you are not the Texan of the Sam Houston, Sam Rayburn, Lyndon Johnson (all school teachers) mold.
    I voted Green; where there were no Greens running, Democratic; where neither, Republican. Ironically, the lone Rep was my opponent for State Board of Education in 2010. I filed against the leader of the flat-earth wing, but he was bumped off in the primary. The Democrats don’t care enough about education to run for the textbook-censors of the nation. I still disagree with him on several points, but an honorable Republican is better than an anarchist who wants to destroy public education entirely and go back to the Middle Ages where only the rich and the church were literate.
