    The leading cause of kids nodding off in school is lack of a decent breakfast. Research has shown that breakfast is 2nd only to mother’s educational level as a predictor of school success.

    Though surfing the net, MyFace & twittering probably didn’t happen so much when the studies were conducted.

    I don’t know about Social Studies, but you just earned yourself an A+ in Creative Fiction Writing.

    You mean it has nothing to do with the monotone voice, the politically correct lessons, or being required to chant along in a monotone voice the lessons.

    Sorry but he is right.

    Great parody, @Nabuquduriuzhur. I’ll bet some folks thought you really were parroting absurd right-wing talking points, instead of deliberately making them look ridiculous.

    If missing breakfast is the leading cause of kids nodding off in class, then the second cause is not enough sleep. Parents don’t put their kids to bed early enough.

    Yes…kids probably don’t get put to bed early enough. It is SO hard for parents to do that. I blame the electric light bulb. Without it, BOTH parents and kids would get to bed earlier and late shifts for the working parents would not exist. Trying to take advantage of that thought, my practice for getting my kids to bed has been to turn out the lights in the house, except for their bedroom light. Like little moths they are attracted there. And then, with gentle but determined discipline, that light goes off at a pre-determined time and all other illumination is appropriately dimmed as well (shades and curtains drawn, no other illuminated devices allowed, for example) and sleep will ensue. Not that it has to be cave blackness, but dark enough for sleeping. And as much quiet as can be brought to bear, that helps as well.

    The system has a glitch, sometimes random postings are removed for no reason. Or Nabuquduriuzhur did it himself.

    The PC is used by right wingers it means that they weren’t given the chance to be racist and sexist as they use to be with approval. Now disapproval.

    Of course, I’m not a kid, but quiet doesn’t work well for me because it is too easy to break. A mask of white noise I find much more conducive to sleep, particularly uninterrupted sleep. Darkness I do find essential.

    I should add that I don’t know whether the kids are learning the Tea Party dogma in class, from their parents, or from those long unsupervised hours in front of the TV set. But they’re learning it somewhere. And they are most certainly not learning any form of liberal or progressive (or, to translate to Faux Snooze Newspeak, “socialist”) version of history, government or economics.

    I’ve written some things that have not been well received here, and on rare occasions, they’ve been flagged for removal. I’ve noticed that it happens only when I’ve used irony, or made an analogy that was totally misunderstood. Recently, I pointed out that Coach Hacker is portrayed as a “fat, stupid failure”. I was trying to make the point that Mr. Mallett does not always treat his characters kindly. But I’d bet some real dough that the person who flagged it did so because he thought it mean and rude that I would describe the character like that. Here I was, saying that we should be nice, and my post was deleted because it looked “mean”. Go figure.

    The comments were better without the political crap.

    I’m guessing Mrs Olson was hoping he DID mean during Social Studies!

    49% of Millennials approve of socialism and 46% of capitalism, and you say they’re learning ‘Tea Party dogma’?
