It is their job to get an education......if you dont get what youre studying then go to the library, go to an uncle an aunt a friend a teacher or someone who can help and FRIGGIN EMPOWER YOURSELF!
    This is a hot button issue, everything I know is because I pushed myself hard thru it all and I no one else......I did it.
    Im an electrician, Im a lineman, Im almost a blackbelt in my training because I push hard 5 days a week. Im a top employee at work because I go faster and harder than the others around me.
    So dont give me the crap that it is everyones job because its not.........its yours and yours alone........get an education and be responsible for yourself!

    Edit* and dont give me the location bs either, you can read a dang book under a tree!
    so in short you believe its a parenting issue??

    If I only had the time and energy to invest in one or the other, which I think is the case with most people, I would use my time and energy to invest in my child. Maybe that's selfish, or maybe I owe it to my child. So I'm not going to bother to try and change the public school system, but rather use whatever time I have to inculcate good habits into my child.

    So, last Summer I was in the D.C. area visiting my son and I happened to mention the awesome display of 'Old Glory' and details that they'd added at the Smithsonian National History Museum. The child had just finished 8th grade and had no idea what I was talking about. Had to take him to the museum and teach him myself.

    Thus, I'm with Berd.

    In hindsight, I think everyone’s opinion on what ought to be done about the educational system in the United States is absolutely correct and simply a fragment of a complex issue. The key word is “education”. There are many moving parts that have to work in synergy for the system to work. Parental responsibility and accountability, a supportive community, adequate funding on the basis that all school districts are equal, are just some of the areas that would enhance our educational system.

    Exactly my point.......teach them young and they will make better choices.

    the level of education, however is Solely Dependant on the school system, meaning, aside from putting a kid into a private school, there really isnt a choice in the level of education given as whole to the kids.

    yes we can encourage our kids to push the limit, but when that limit is so low on the limbo pole well...

    yes.. However to put EVERY child in the same go out a just do it category is impossible, there has to be starting point, motivation, to do so. Crappy teachers , combined with unconcerned parents , is Not the best start

    Plastic surgery.... a boob is a boob. Saline, silicone, or home grown fat. I'm sure if I was breast feeding it would make a difference to me, but I do not like milk. If it makes you feel better about you, then you should do it. If you are doing it to please someone else, you need a shrink not a plastic surgeon.

    rule of thumb: if it doesn't occur in nature, it's probably not attractive.

    that's true of plastic surgery as well as make up. I most cases less is more.
