    Some states require standardized testing for non-public education, but don’t allow them to take the same standardized testing that the public schools do. I suspect it’s because they don’t want the comparison.

    We partially homeschooled, partially private schooled, and partially public schooled (according to the needs of each of our kids). The homeschooling years were nice because we could take the kids overseas to be involved in our mission activities. They gained exposure to various cultures and languages and were still able to do the school work that matched the scope and sequence of material required and recommended by our state.

    We could use some hopeful fundraisers. Exactly 5 years after this strip was first printed, my mother would be fighting a losing battle with cancer.

    The boy who cried wolf learned that there’s a difference between legitimate alarm and fear mongering. It’s unwise to confuse one for the other.

    I’m hoping our local Chinese restaurant is able to open back up. It’s not a buffet, but it’s fresh-made fast – one of the best in town.

    I would probably have enjoyed sports more if someone would have bothered to teach me to play. You hear famous sports figures talk about these great coaches who were like fathers to them, but most of us don’t experience coaches like that. The only competition I ever got good at was in the Marines where you understood that verbal abuse was helping toughen you up to fight effectively when people are shooting at you. On top of that, I got schooled in using a wide range of weapons and target identification.

    Document management is a thing. Neither PHB nor Alice is doing it right. Yet Wally suffers.

    Winners can’t afford to be compassionate when the way you win is by defeating someone else.

    I’ve known bosses like this. He wants everyone to think he knows more than he does. He doesn’t want to let on that he doesn’t have a clue what’s going on, but he needs his thing fixed so he’s called in Dilbert to collaborate. So now that Dilly has given him a clue, he’s pretending that he knows how to fix it on his own. Dilbert’s ruse is only revealing the PHB’s ineptitude. Dilbert knows the PHB will be back for more punishment.

    Who knows? He’s probably just catching passers-by on the roof and selling them to passers-by on the street.
