    Isn't it funny Marvin that anyone who doesn't agree with you must be BENEATH you?

    Actually Marvin, I do know you. You see, I sit, I watch and I listen.

    You do not. You have this idea (and its made abundantly clear post after post after post) that anyone who does not agree with you must be stupid.

    Well unfortunately for you, that's not how the real world works.

    Being 70 years old just means you are older, not smarter, or wiser nor does it give you a higher IQ.

    I don't think I am incognito. I just know that you don't KNOW me. Yeah you know the name and you might even recognize the face. But you don't know what I know or who I know or what I have read.

    Open-minded people progress and grow through life and over time. Close-minded people just grow older through life and over time.

    Bob there are some on here that would have you believe your cryptic, but in my opinion much closer to the mark, opinions are just the product of a twisted radical right wing mind set. I do not happen to be one of those people. The educational system in this country has been the sole providence of the left wing for years. Get em young fill their head full of junk and create a reliable voting block down the road. In many cases the parents of these little zombies either don't know enough or care enough to understand just who is teaching what should be a generation full of potential. Unfortunately the best and brightest are not often found teaching in our public education system.

    Lee, you are beginning to sound like the person who was on my case a couple of years ago. Turns out this person is a serial EMBEZZLER, or is all the scuttle I hear not true. Anyway, whats your issue?

    I would say that if what I do is that entertaining to you, you truly need to get a life.

    You might first try learning a little about the dogs you breed before you peddle the pups.

    While there are people in this world who I would not want to think ill of me, you are not one of those. Read my byline, I do believe that also. So waste your posts elsewhere.

    I happen to believe I am well qualified to discuss the K-12 & beyond system of schools based on my life's experiences which did include serving on a school board & facing down a teacher's strike. I would note that I was elected twice by fairly substantial margins, so had I not been doing something right that wouldn't have happened. So again, your opinion would go with that 40% who chose not to vote for me.

    I spent several years as negotiations chair on this board, a position I was elected to by my fellow Board members, so I must have done something right. The teachers took that out on our boys, which would be typical. Many of them have an issue with the adult world & reality.

    As for what you do, I did notice the omission of the word "COMPREHEND", you might try a little of that before you get into a discussion with someone who's played the game.

    I have no idea what you are talking about. Can't tell you about what scuttle you might or might not have heard.

    As far as knowing about the dogs I breed, pretty sure I know quite a bit about them. However, it sounds like you are unhappy with your dog. If you are, well then I guess you can take it up with the person who gave it to you. Last time I asked your son how your dog was doing, he said you weren't talking to him.

    As far as worrying about whether you like me or not, gee I've never even given it a thought. Actually, I still haven't given it a thought.

    If enough people challenge you on your ideas, your attitude is "take your ball and go home".

    Here's a link to the SECOND TIME you "quit the board"......if I remember correctly the second time you "quit the board" it lasted a mere two days.....

    That is ridiculous. The inner city schools are the best funded in the country and have nothing to show for it. The issue is discipline. There is nothing a public school can do with people who's parents are socially dysfunctional.

    Public schools should be abolished. Education is way too important to be left up to the government.

    Who or what should it be left up to? I'm not arguing, but I'm all ears if anyone can come up with a better system, that will give ALL kids a chance to succeed and better themselves. I have NO DOUBT private schools can do a great job, but only for those who can afford them.

    Vouchers are an interesting idea, but will not cover the entire cost of private schools likely, and will segregate kids into those with the means to attend private school on vouchers, and those left to the even more highly underfunded public schools.

    While it certainly has its faults and inefficiencies, I would say the public school system has done a fairly decent job for us.

    I'm not sure where you are getting your information. Philadelphia schools receive one half the level of funding as schools in my area (Bucks County -- aka Big Bucks County) yet deal with students with many more problems. Abolish public schools and we will soon be able to compete with the worst of the Islamic fundamentalist countries in a rush back to the middle ages.

    Lots of smart people have attended public schools.

    Just like anything in life, you get out what you put in. Parents need to teach their children how to put in 110% at the important things in life that will make them successful. Not 30% at school and 100% chasing women or selling drugs...
