    No! Paying people a living wage and giving them pensions is socialism. Unless they’re in the top levels of corporations, in which case it’s their divine, God-given right and taking it away is socialism. It’s all socialism.

    Looks like a good organization.
    God knows those kids in the inner-city aren’t getting help from their parents.

    I can say I was fortunate enough to get A’s throughout high school, however I can say with certainty that my dad could not have taught me it.

    There is occasional negative talk of parents not helping kids. However if the parent themselves do not understand it (My father was dyslexic which impeded him, as well as slight learning disability).

    When we talk about inner cities, you talk about entrenched poverty, you can push somebody to be as helpful as they can, yet they can only pass on as much as they know

    The number one attribute of successful schools is the average family income of the students in the school. We have a poverty problem in this country and it is getting steadily worse. We need to fight the poverty and its effects. There are not simple solutions to this complex problem. We should look to Finland. They raised teacher pay, but are very selective about who is qualified to teach. And they repsect the teachers.

    And people wonder why I finally retired from a profession I love. It wasn’t age, I tell ya that. I just can’t seem to get along with School Administrators who sold their souls.

    Took you long enough to put in your ignorance, you must have gone to a late model American school.

    Good idea. Let’s start right now!

    The last thing a ‘free country’ needs is a propaganda machine.

    It is a good organization. It was founded by Bob Moses, who played a big role in the Mississippi movement back in the 1960s. He also has a graduate degree in math from Harvard. This is a great example of positive action to help solve a problem.

    I love the conservative complainers here— so bitter, so selfish, so nasty, and so wrong about everything.

    I see things haven’t changed much here.

    If you really want to improve education, do it like the Japanese do. Teaching is respected on the level with doctors and lawyers, and paid accordingly, so they get the best graduates coming out of college. Then, they don’t have them doing anything but actual teaching, no playground or lunch room duty. They are treated as professionals, so they don’t lose 1/3 of the new teachers in the first five years. We do, because there is always an easier, better paying job for a college graduate.However, you do need to remember that holding the factory responsible for the quality of the product isn’t valid unless there is some quality control in the raw materials.

    @D Lee

    Sounds good.
    I bet they also don’t have rules making it almost impossible to fire a bad teacher.
