@kaitee if you take early release that counts as your seventh period so you are still in threeRead More classes a day so six classes. If you take late start that counts as your first period of the day but you still have the next two periods and seventh period so still six classes. Do not tell me my argument is flawed when your math is completely incorrect

Congratulations Brandon Ross!! Right, wrong, or otherwise you are at least trying. Rather than sitRead More and complain you are trying to implement a change, you are starting the process. It may end up going no where, but nothing ventured is nothing gained. I applaud your efforts and hope the best for you.

What is important to celebrate is that each of us is freedom to follow their own spiritual beliefsRead More without impediment. I believe that there are grains of truth in every established religion and much wisdom to be gained in studying all of them. What we need is less talk about religion and more living the ideals that are embodied in all of them.

"What we need is less talk about religion and more living the ideals that are embodied in allRead More of them." Atheists are smaller in proportion than christians are in prison. In a 2013 report released by the US Federal Bureau of Prisons, 0.07 percent atheists, 28.7 percent identify as Protestant and 24 percent Catholic. Atheists are more generous too. Atheists are driven by emotions, such as compassion, as opposed to religious people, who may be more influenced by “doctrine, a communal identity, or reputational concerns. Finally, A new review of 63 scientific studies stretching back over decades has concluded that religious people are less intelligent than non-believers. A piece of University of Rochester analysis, led by Professor Miron Zuckerman, found “a reliable negative relation between intelligence and religiosity” in 53 out of 63 studies.

@ Max comment: you see being gay as a "problem." This is YOUR problem. My son being gayRead More is as awesome as my other sons being straight. The problem is not gay people, it is the ignorance of those who do not understand it and thus demonize it in their own hearts. This mentality is quickly going the route of interracial marriage. Because, you know, "Christians" fought against that as well because, well you know, the Bible tells us so.
ChristieD April 22, 2014 at 10:24 pm
@ John Webb: do you really truly embrace ALL that the Bible says? There are lots of things in theRead More bible that were seen as immoral in Biblical times that are not an issue today (eating bacon, playing football - aka touching the skin of a pig, wearing polyester, etc.). There are also things in the Bible that were seen as moral in Biblical times that are considered immoral today (including slavery, stoning people, polygamy, incest, misogyny, etc.) So, which parts exactly are those that are acceptable for us to ignore while pulling out those that fit your own personal biases? Because we could go on a Bible quoting frenzy here on this blog which would be quite pointless. The issue here is that this preacher picks and chooses which issues are "special" to him and preaches against them while ignoring other issues (Jesus never said anything about gay marriage but plenty about divorce). God doesn't have an issue with gay people; heck, he created them! And I am so glad he did!

The layout of the grammer school makes a difference in what the child is exposed to and learns.Read More That sounds inconceivable but whan they made the decision to put the children is separate bungalows with just one teacher all day it meant that they would not be exposed to specialist teachers such as literature, art, and music appreciation until they get to Jr. High School. I grew up during the great depression. Most assuredly there was no excess money for education, yet we had a gym teacher, we received instructions in drawing and painting, and we listened to classical records in our one day a week music class - because we walked to the specialist teachers classroom. Getting instruction in the humanities costs no more than sitting all day with the same teacher. It is the number of classroom hours spent per week that counts. The Superintendant does not have to hire more teachers, he hires specialists who excite and stimulate the kids in the subject that they themselves love so much. When the child gets a singlr teacheer who teaches math, English, history, etc. that teacher is bound to not be too good at some of the myriad subjects. If we could expose kids tothe very best at the hight of the depression we can do better by them than to have them sit on their behinds all day with someone who is a master of some and a bore at all.

Over all the teachers are very much respected." ________________________________________________________ I think that the current tenure system is an insult to great teachers. The first special education classroom that I witnessed for my daughters did little more than babysit them. We were told that they were doing all they could for them and that they were meeting all of the goals of their IEP. Their next teacher was still taking classes towards her masters degree and was excited to try new things. My daughters made amazing progress. ____________________________________________________ When the LAUSD was forced to lay off teachers, do you want to guess which one lost her Special Education assignment? Instead she was assigned to a kindergarten classroom. What a waste of a special talent!
