We have to make people aware that our State is run by public employee Unions and we need court casesRead More like today which ruled that the California Teacher Tenure rules are unconstitutional so that we can change laws and vote people out of office who do not represent the interests of the public who pay the taxes.

Something that is interesting to note is that high school grads are going to four year universitiesRead More and studying subject that isn't marketable. While on the other hand you have people getting vocational training at vocational schools that essentially guarantees them a job out of school that will make them 'x' amount of money. So it isn't that college degrees are worthless, some are. It is also said that sometimes trade school is the right choice!

I think the job of monitoring belongs to the parents. By definition, there is NO privacy withRead More social media. Anyone who thinks there is, or that free speech means saying anything without consequences in an absolute idiot. Should schools monitor? No, I don't believe that is where we expect our tax dollars to be spent, especially when the educational system is tanking so badly, and when the monies can be used better elsewhere, as in salary raises for our teachers. Should a student be called on the carpet by the school for somethings online? Only if it pertains to the school or the employees or other students therein. Things like the lollipops described above are issues for the parents to deal with, not the schools. If schools are monitoring and find this, they might alert the parents, but they should stay out of it. Right and wrong is not something the gov't (in the guise of schools here) should be enforcing, it is the parents job based upon their religious beliefs in accordance with the laws. Parents may complain that they have too much to do and not enough time to monitor their kids. To those parents I say that if you either made the choice, or were irresponsible enough to have kids, you chose to do this so suck it up. Those unwilling to take care of kids as they should, should refrain from having them or be sterilized, it's that simple. As with the kids and social media, people need to realize that there is a consequence to having kids. And while it may take a village to raise a child, ultimately it is the job of the parents.

Lawsuits?!? That's ridiculous! The whole idea was that the quality of education would not beRead More severely impacted for those already attending. By adding more students with the same amount of teachers, of course the quality would dilute somewhat, but not severely. A line has to be drawn where the impact would be severe. Not only for the students, but for the load on the teachers. The morons that believe otherwise are just as bad as the idiot management in corporate America that just keep cutting staff and overloading the remaining staff with work. Remember, salaried employees are not slave labor, you are getting 40 hours of work per week by agreeing to be providing 40 hours of pay. That's all salaried means. Otherwise it's hourly and neither the worker nor the employer are guaranteed either will be available to work when needed. Morons.
