We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

Lol. Yeah I noticed that since you posted it.
I agree with your thought on tenure and old teachers that don't give a rat's ass about their job but those education numbers are skewed by how expensive colleges and universities have become. It's just insane to me that people like my fiancé, who put herself through school, is now making less than $40,000 a year, while she has $60,000 in school loans. It's issues like this, that I have with our education system.
Go Blue & Gig Em'!
I was just reffering to k-12 since that is mostly what we hear about when it comes to education spending and what most of our education tax dollars go toward. My numbers only included k-12 as well.
Higher education is a different animal. The quality is fine it's the price that's the problem. The price is largely because universities are extremely top heavy, and spend millions on frills to attract new students only to charge the ridiculous tuition to pay for the crap they built to attract them. It's also true government money has been diverted from universities, but by and large universities themselves are the ones who make tuition cost so much. And again the quality is fine.
Some people have jobs and can't be surfing the internet all day long.
I cant even believe I am about to say this, but, gulp..... Mr. Woodson.... I agree with you on this.
I dream of a day when chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned.
Like the rich care about the middle class.
From 1917 to 1981, the bottom 90% of wage earners in this country (blue) captured 69% of the total wage growth. The richest 10%, meanwhile, got 31% of the wage gains.
Between 1981 and 2008, however, things changed. The richest 10% grabbed 96% of the income gains in those years, leaving only 4% for the bottom 90%.
This country just isn't America anymore.
Obamas fix is to keep rising gas prices and raise MPG standards for cars by 2020. That sounds like a good leveling plan until you realize all the research and development the car companies have to do to acheive that goal outprices the majority of americans can afford. It is so stupid.
Schools need help, but the people in the districts are culpable. The housing market is culpable. Cheap housing occurs in areas that are less then desirable. That draws folks that aren't likely to stick. You can't help the schools until you make the cities and burbs safe. You can't make those things safe w/o enough officers. You can't pay officers with tax money that you arent' collecting from impoverished arenas. It is really that simple.
Yeah and don't let the left believe that the majority of clintons success was based upon the internet boom. The guy was obviously a genius and is the most respected adulterer in the known world...
