As a product of home schooling, private, and public school systems, I have to say that home schooling was the most efficient use of time.  The private school had higher standards that the public system, but the public system had more options and resources. 

I was ahead in some subjects and slightly behind in one when I switched from home to private school.  I was ahead by over a year in a couple subjects when I switched from private to public.  The public school had more varied classes with a better potential to branch out in specific areas though.

No surprise the states that have the most Christians who practice homeschooling also have dire dropout rates.

As many know Bernie Sanders wants to pay $80 billion a year in order to fund free college education for all. I think this would be a god awful idea. I will spare you another rant about it.

How would everyone feel about an increase in the size of pell grants or a program to provide means tested full scholarships? I think this would be the best way to increase access. Reforms to how colleges spend their money will make sure tuition doesn't balloon from there on.

What do you think?

There's a new statute going into effect starting January 1, 2017 that ups the punishment when students get into a fight.

The change means that if your student is caught fighting once they return back to school, they will get jail time.

Right now, if a student gets into a fight and hurts another person, they're charged with a misdemeanor and then released to their parents.

However, with the new law going into effect on January 1, that student will now head to a juvenile detention center and be charged with a Class E felony.

That means they could spend up to four years in jail.


Sikeston DPS Sergeant Jon Broom said he hopes this new rule will make students think twice before getting into a fight.

“A felony down the road is something that will definitely hamper you down the road for sure," Broom said.

This crap has gotten way out of hand. Kids fight, it's human nature. Criminalizing it is abhorrent.

Pathway to frivolous arrests. School administration sucks at figuring out who started what. Punishment is doled out on hearsay and favoritism. Have fun getting a criminal record for being punched in the face, kids.

A Mont Belvieu-area high school student said he will not cut his hair after the school board passed an amendment to its dress code last month requiring boys to have short hair.

Barbers Hill High School senior DeAndre Arnold said the rule is sexist and a violation of his civil rights.
...
Arnold’s hair is not within the new guidelines and is not acceptable hair length for male students, according to the new guidelines.
...
His mother said he will have to cut his hair if he wants to go back to normal classes.

Wow this story makes me so upset. What makes him think he can have any kind of hair he wants? He should cut his hair. And not just because it is the school rules. But because that sort of hair style isn't good for him, a black man.

I went to a resort of Jamaica once. All of the resort staff had shaved heads. There were no Bob Marley's around.

And it was so fantastic and clean. Excellent service.

Wow, there you go again with that. Make sure you're all classy with a button-up shirt and a belt while trashily making out with the substitute teacher in the break room or whatever.

He has a point though, doesn't he? It is gender discrimination of a sort. Other students there support him in this. Perhaps the board should review some of the gender-based grooming standards still in place and axe or revise anything with that condition. It's not the 1950s anymore.

A country where you can earn maybe fifty bucks in a week in some of the more poverty-stricken areas. But at least they pleased Macbeth with their shaven heads.

So they changed the policy a month ago and now the kid has to fit in with the new policy or be excluded from classes?
Looks like someone has had fun on wikipedia.

i’ve never met someone who hates his own ethnicity/background as much as macbeth before. it’s probably even a contributor to his near-constant psychic disequilibrium.

i thought jay was the arriviste manqué but it turns out macbeth is the one who is really gunning for middle america. whether it’s a yacht club or a policeman’s ball, macbeth is just begging to submit to the mores (and dress codes) of the white man.

sad !

Dreadlocks aren't a part of my culture. And as I said before I have plenty of spite for white people too. I just don't express it here because it wouldn't go over well and you don't notice it when I do.

Would you guys be interested in some punching down on poor white people?

With all of the potential school closings, schools are now looking into online instruction more. The older teachers have a fear that everything is going to be moved onto to digital platforms in the future as well as having a general fear of technology. It will be interesting if this outbreak leads to online instruction becoming more popular.

I never liked online classes, personally. I need face to face interaction.

Live online can be decent, but archived requires a level of discipline that i lack.

I would love online classes since I hate leaving the house. If I could just be locked into my apartment and have a woman bring me supplies and have sex with me I would be very happy. I could do 10,000 years of that.

i have never taken an online class but i have a friend who does copywriting and UX design for them. very lucrative industry.

mostly seems to have taken off in the corporate training environment rather than as a replacement for full-time education.

My district is sending out emails telling us to not live stream lessons. I think they do not want self isolated teachers and students chatting online together all day. Considering the stories I have heard from my on district, that sounds smart.

Meanwhile a teacher I know in Staten Island says the city is requiring them to Livestream once a day.
