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!

This is absolutely ridiculous we need people in there who want to educate not dream up crap likeRead More this.

I would hope you are kidding. but if you are not this is a safety issue as temps could break moreRead More records at over 100 degrees. what if a fire breaks out in other locations and you have to evacuate? you would have parents trying to get their kids and then the roads would be blocked even worse. schools in show country get days off why not for weather?

No not kidding it's been burning here every summer for 1000s of years. they didn't close for weatherRead More they closed specifically for fire danger! how many schools are in danger of a brush fire?? It gets over 100 here quite often! it is really a desert here deal with it.

You won't see it called Agenda 21. It won't come with flashing lights announcing that it's part ofRead More a global standardization program to inventory, monitor, and control every aspect of your life. Example?Common Core is the 'new' inventory and control system adopted by nearly every state in the US to fully implement Skinnerian training. This system creates people who will go along to get along, who will be 'good obedient citizens'. RESIST. TELL YOUR SCHOOL BOARD THAT YOU WANT OUT OF COMMON CORE. This is a top down federal/global system for pseudo-education and is a tremendous threat to our independence as individuals and as a nation.

Yes,How will they ever have a unique signature all their own?Everyone going to print and identify byRead More stick letters.?How will they be able to read old love letters their grandparents wrote 100 years ago or the census when researching their ancestry?I think the signature like the Declaration of Independence is YOURS and your alone.I am amazed how we just delete things from life and don't think down the road.Really is it that hard to tech this?

Schools systems are being standardized through Common Core, Mastery Learning, Outcome BasedRead More Education, Direct Instruction--many names for the same thing: Skinnerian (B.F. Skinner) International Curriculum. See Charlotte Iserbyt's book 'Back to Basics Reform Or...Skinnerian International Curriculum. Education is the basis for every change we've seen in our culture and government. Without indoctrination and destruction of the ability to think independently this plan could not succeed.

Common Core is not a creature of the Federal government so that argument is moot. It was created byRead More a confederation of state leaders. Interestingly, the fact that people believe the common core is a federal program actually prooves the necessity of the program.

Personally, I wouldnt have sued but if the family wound up in a financially dire situation as aRead More result of medical costs, I could understand going for those to have them covered. I doubt this was any kind of "get rich quick" scheme mainly because as the article said,the award only covered medical and legal costs. The family can't even touch the 9k in the account, only the son can when he turns 18 (and lets be honest, college tution will devour that in the first semester). Think before you judge people.
Brian Hanifin November 2, 2013 at 11:09 am
You say it is a money grab, but these types of settlements go into an account that only the childRead More can access when they turn 18 the parents gain nothing from this. I agree it sounds ridiculous because the injury occurred during a school game. But consider this: would you feel differently about the kids broken leg if an improperly secured appliance fell on him at an appliance store? The first patch article suggested he could never fully recover from his injury which could affect his future ability to earn money. It is very easy to pass quick judgement and say nah, I wouldn't sue. Until you are in the position to have to make that decision you can't know how you would handle it.

This child currently plays every sport there is including football. He is in High school now

Good job on saving so much money. Now you can pay half the injury money to the ambulance-chasingRead More parents of the kid who couldn't handle a game of red rover.

This game was played during P.E. No more baseball, football, kickball. Running can only be doneRead More after the track is inspected for potholes and all sticks and rocks have been removed by a certified track inspector. Furthermore all children will be wrapped in bubble wrap before being allowed to stand around at recess.
Kim Joralemon November 1, 2013 at 08:48 am
7th grade is too old to play that game. its meant for elementary age anyway.
Kim Joralemon November 1, 2013 at 08:49 am
Oh and its law suits that cause schools to discontinue sports anyway.
