    It really matters not if you give free breakfast, lunch and dinners, charter schools, IPods, Tablets, tutors, free tranportation to and from school, premium teachers, etc…. the grades and the test scores won’t improve at all. They know why the California K-12 schools are failing and ranked so low nationally. But they practice political correctness and won’t tell you the reason. But I will….it all comes down to the culture and values of the families in which these kids are raised. They don’t value education. They don’t push their kids to learn. I’ve told you over and over again that the asians have a 40% enrollment at the UC system while they only account for about 12% of California’s population. Why? Their families value education. When is CWD going to do a video discussion on that??? hah. I won’t hold my breath. You folks are just as politically correct as the MSM, and you know it! 😀

    Are there bad teachers or bad students/parents?

      “Constipado may be on to something.”

      I’m always on to something. That’s the reason I gets lots of insults but very very little in the way of debate or counterarguments. They hate my opinions but they know I’m right on the money!!! HAH! 😀

    Governor Brown could fix all the problems with the Public School system in California overnight. Simply MANDATE that ALL Public Employees and Public Servants send their children to PUBLIC SCHOOLS or be immediately terminated and complete loss of all Benefits and Pensions. Hell just make it a Criminal Act to not support the Public School System if you are a Public Employee. I find it hard to believe the Demonrat Majority hasn’t done it yet in the name of FAIRNESS.

      That’s a good point. The public employees always rave about how fantastic all the government services are. Wonderful….then walk your talk. Use government services EXCLUSIVELY when given a choice! Maybe when little Johnny sits in a classroom full of illegal indigents whose parents couldn’t give a rip about the value of education the gov crowd would change it’s tune about the need for school vouchers, eh??? lol. I wonder what percent of the dem legislators in Sactown send their kids to public schools? lol. Wouldn’t that be an interesting factoid. Why isn’t THAT public information? No doubt it would be an eye opener. That’s why it’s all confidential information. To conceal the truth from ya!!! lol!!! 😀

    My son was a football player in high school. He took Algebra One four years in a row….each year a different teacher and name for the class. Went to the school for clarification. They told me he is a good boy, never any problems. That’s it. Thanks for stopping by Ulysses. We need more parents like you helping our youth.

    Gag!

    “He took Algebra One four years in a row….each year a different teacher and name for the class.”

    Was his learning disability inherited genetically ? HAH! 😀

    “They told me he is a good boy, never any problems.”

    I thought all the ‘good boys’ and ‘good girls’ were the sons and daughters who were churchgoers and on their way to college when suddenly by some freak of nature got involved in a gang drug deal gone bad and ended up dead? At least that’s what the newspapers generally report.

      I just wondered why your kid took 4 years of Algebra One in HS. Whether it was a teacher, a cultural or a genetic problem? Fair question. If he was on the f-ball team why didn’t the coach get him a waiver from math classes? The rest of us can learn through your experiences. Did he evolve to Algebra Two in community college? Did he repeat Algebra Two in his 2nd year in CC?

      yeah, Ahual, we’re the ones who are “sick”. Your posts indicate that you are a perfectly well-adjusted individual! 😀 I bet you’re the poster boy for the Mental Health Association of California (MHAC). Do you counsel trough-feeding pension pigs who suffer from guilt complexes??? HAH! 😀
