|I wonder if the two Neil Armstrong teachers that were busy yapping during most of Mr. Daggett's presentation learned anything. I know the other people sitting close by were having a hard time hearing the speaker because of their rudeness. Were these teachers paid to attend this seminar and be a disruption?|

|It's was kind of funny reading this. The NEA teachers are who they are. The acceptance of the GEC system as a complete failure is noting new. Rat, the teachers laughing and not paying attention are the very reasons there was a need to have this. NEA teachers are a self anointed arrogant elitist ruling group that are solely responsible for the failure of what once was tried as a form of educating a nations child. This isn't an opinion because the numbers are there to prove it. Yes, they will blame everyone and anything else but themselves as you will surly get to experience in their response to this post but they are the only ones who will defend the GEC system that's failed us at the same time the third world country's make fun of us.|
A typical NEA teacher will blame first their past students they molded for being bad parents. Hummm didn't they teach them life science ? morals, social skills, home-ec, NO, Instead of those important things they were suppose to be teaching they taught them ( at a young age ) they had a legal right to an abortion ( children are worthless) and that sex with student was expected, pleasurable and natural regardless of the gender they had it with and how to masturbate at 11. That's just a few things parents were train, yes folks their parents, remember they were past students. Then when they got a little older and became parents those same NEA teachers expected them to be able to be great moral leaders of their children, at least the ones they didn't abort, and send good children back to their class rooms with great moral character that will love their teachers and feel the need to learn the CRAP their parents were taught. Right ?............RIGHT ?
This isn't rocket science folks but it is institutionalized child abuse. Plain and simple.
It's not teachers, even though you have read some of the comments from our local GEC NEA'ers on this forum, It's not about school buildings and it most definitely isn't about technology of the 21st century that the administrator here are grasping at straws over. IT'S ABOUT CHILDREN AND CHILDREN ONLY. It's about learning not teaching. They are two completely different things that are complete opposites of one another.
All the focus of education is placed on the teachers who want the backs patted and their wallets padded along with the BILLION dollars of fancy shrines to their administrations legacies called school buildings. And because it's operated buy politicians who can only throw money at them , we are only left with embarrassing numbers and results of what you got .... or what your children didn't get.
So, here we are, NEA school administrations grasping at straws talking about the "21st century gadgets" ( sounds cool doesn't it ?) to sleepy NEA'ers who blame their students, both present and past, for their failures in educating.
Don't be mesmerized by fancy words that are designed to be taken as futuristic cures surely not easily understood by mere 20th century people that will accept them as an answer to a mostly misunderstood problem.
It won't be til the focus changes from "NEA teacher" to "CHILDREN'S LEARNING" will education start. It won't be til the focus changes from "government run Billion dollar shrines" to "CHILDREN'S LEARNING" will education start. It won't be til the focus changes from failure sustainer's called "21st century" technologies to "CHILDREN'S LEARNING" will education start. It won't be til we accept the fact, it's not about " TEACHING CHILDREN" but it's about "CHILDREN'S LEARNING" does discussions on education even matter.
Nothing will improve until government run schools are turned over to non-NEA union " Private run Charter Schools " that will have as a required coarse on "Ways to Homeschool your Child " will education begin and the moral fabric of a nation begins to mend.
I'm convinced that if a town like Mooresville Indiana had a school board that would turn their existing system over to a private run education company ( charter school)compensated on performance, it would become a model for all this nations school districts. Talk about a shrine to an administration. I'd personally would pay for the bronze plaque with those school board members names on it. They will be in the history books as the ones who save education in America.

|I am convinced that both of you are complete idiots who literally have wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy too much time on your dirty hands.|
You're not Christians and you're not good people.
You're old, hateful, selfish know-it-alls who know nothing who literally have NO clout, no conscience and no shut off switch.
You spout off about EVERYTHING on here and are a perpetual broken record.
And last, Liberty ALL THE PROBLEMS IN MORGAN COUNTY ARE BEING RUN BY REPUBLICANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
GOD BLESS YOU.
***P.S. Dear Mooresville:
Please turn your system (that recently had 90% garduation rate and 80+% passing rate on ISTEP) over to a private run system like the Harlem Center, featured in the film "Waiting for Superman" - the center's CEO, Mr. Canada, makes $400,000 and they spend $35,000 per child. They also ONLY take kids who they deem worthy and they except NO special ed or "problem" children.
After you realize that the rest of the Mooresvill kids cannot enter this "private academy" (and the taxpayers figure out how cheap it was to pay a public school employee and you get the same or worse results) you can drop your kids off at Liberty's so he can homeschool them in hatespeech.

I don't know why you just posted your hateful name calling attack on me. I guess something in my post must have stuck a cord with you and told you to be a mean person to somebody. I don't need an apology and I hold no blame against you because I know you struggle with some of these things and I know what anger and hatred can do in a persons life.
I do thing you should apologize to Ratcatcher who is a very nice person that doesn't deserve being publicly berated for just sharing what was seen at a public meeting by public on the clock employees.
Everybody has their own outlook on different matters. If you don't agree with someone on any given issue offer up you own opinion for consideration. If you have some data or linked reference that helps bring credibility to it , then all the better. But just calling names means capitulation on a matter has overcome you and calling someone a name is required to sooth your pain. I understand how that can happen and I just want you to know I still think we could be friends.
You should still apologize to Ratcatcher though.

I'm just curious why you would agree with Reality's idea to turn Mooresville over to a system like the Harlem Center. Talk about bad corrupt racial politics. It doesn't make sense to me. Shouldn't we want better for the children of Mooresville ?
Just looking for your insight ?

Reality was using sarcasm to counter your opinion/position on public education with factual number. Neither he or myself want those things for our children in a literal sense. At least that is the way I understood it! Reality please feel free to correct me if I am wrong.

|An indictement of Charter schools, equating them all to the Harlem Center is akin to an indictment of all public schools for whatever you know about a few of them.|

|Nobody - decent point but facts are facts. The most recent numbers on the nation's charter schools (around 5,000 of them) is that most do not do better than traditional public schools. In fact, only 17% of the nation's charter schools outperformed public schools. In contrast, Mooresville schools and Martinsville schools, all schools that take EVERYONE, recently improved in graduation rates in high schools and improved VERY WELL in 3rd grade ITSEP scores (with Martinsville schools at 81% passing in BOTH reading and math) - considering the community of Martinsville has a above 50% free and reduced lunch and above average poverty, coupled with the fact that only about 40% of the kids go to 4 year college, I would say that's pretty damn good. If you look at the clientale, these schools are outperforming many schools - and, both communities participate in weekday relgious education - they also promote abstinence only health courses, etc, etc, So, to paint a picture of awful, failing schools is pure propaganda and flatout lying.|
By the way, these figures are staight from the DOE of Indiana - unfortunately, the current governor and the school's thug-in-cheif Tony Bennett must not be able to read the data. Because, according to them, the sky is falling (or failing).
P.S. Nobody - this was no indictment, this was a point taken from the film. This is not reality that schools will spend $35,000 per kid. And by the way, it's a TRUE privately run school - corporations pay the bill and his salary not tax dollars.
Indiana legislators are planning on spending Hoosier tax dollars on PRIVATE schools - which is borderline unconstitutional!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and flat out swindling.
I have no problem with Charter Schools - build 1,000 of them - just don't pull money away from public schools. Figure out a way to fund them and hold them to the SAME standards as public schools.

|Now as far as the NEA propaganda about charter schools there is one main thing that they try to deceive people with in their quest for money and that's the data they use to judge Charter school performance is actually data on GEC developed children. It's ridiculous and a total lie to blame the new owner of your car for the damages you caused to it before you sold it to them. That's the only numbers out their. The honest and wise understand this and ignores those liars who try to fool the public into their web of union political deceit.|
The fact of the matter is the only way to develop a fair evaluation is to start only with first year students and ad the next higher grade as each year progresses to the next. Protecting them from any NEA teachers damaging influence. Any other attempted use of comparison is nothing but nonsense and the intelligent knows and deals with it as such.
The public may not know this but just about every day or two someone in this county is being removed from the GEC system to either be home-schooled or put in a private school. I thank the public comments from some of are GEC NEA teachers on here for gives them the urgency and determination to yank them from their class rooms. So I guess I should thank the NEA'ers when the expose their hearts on here. It's been great for the cause. I mean that , sincerely. If you don't believe me you can call home and ask my wife.
