In-your-face stuff from an opinionated
rural north Idaho housewife.
Satan is at work, and doesn't even hide his agenda anymore. He has all the ignorant dupes he needs to forward his agenda.
B-I-N-G-O! Washington and its government schools are doing the work of Satan. Can you imagine more useful idiots than parents who literally serve their children on a platter as offerings to Satan?Dock Guy
You hit the nail on the head in the first paragraph. Back in the day schools were under "local control and responsive to the parents".Huggs..
I actually got to read 3/4 of your article this time. Usually I only get a few lines, after allowing WND to load for 5+ minutes. Then it freezes up and I have to start all over again. This time I only had to load it 5 times before the final freeze-up. Does anyone else have this problem? It only happens on the WND site. What I was able to read was totally accurate.A friend at church is an elementary teacher in the Los Angeles ghetto. She will not get a contract for next year because of declining enrollment. Parents are bailing away from sinking schools.
Susan, as I mentioned to another reader, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and explain your situation. You're not alone, and the lady who will answer your email is very helpful.- Patrice
Susan, I normally use Explorer for a browser. WND is the only site where pages will NOT load. Now I just switch to Microsoft Edge (just for Patrice's articles) and it works great.Dock Guy
And here I thought it just me and my way outdated laptop. I am sorry to say I don't even try, I come here for the comments and then figure out what the article coveredCarl in the UP
This really is a sad state of affairs here in MN when it comes to not only our schools but our government as well. Edina was historically an affluent Jewish community. Over the last 20 years or so it has slowly been transformed into an extension of Minneapolis - which it borders. As you see this urban sprawl start to happen, you see conservative people move farther out and you start to see neighborhoods decline. Minnesota may look like a blue state on an electoral map but if you look at voting by county, you see that the metro area liberalism suddenly gets to be the voice for a nearly entirely red state. It is sad and frustrating to see day in and day out this entire group of people who take no personal responsibility for their lives and politicians who think more government and more laws are what is best for everyone. Growing up and living in this beautiful state my entire life, it is hard to leave but there are many days we would love to pack up an move away to where there are more like minded people to us. But, until then we have people like you we can connect with over the internet :)
I was raised in Rochester, MN and I watched the last Presidential with great interest in Minnesota. The state voted for Trump with the exception of the Metropolitan MSP, Olmsted County (where I was raised) and possibly Duluth. (Don't remember but county breakdown was online). It is indeed a beautiful state but has been over run by the takers who now out vote the workers. I have not lived there for almost 35 years now, but still look now and then and am saddened by what I see. Unfortunately my current state is seeing the same type of creep.... the cities are a problem.
Interesting that I could access this link but not your most recent WND post. Def a WND issue. BUT I could not 'share' it from WND to FB. Things that make you go hmmm...Couldn't agree more, tho.
Late to the party again.It seems to me that, if we provide the children with a real, challenging education in math and science and literacy, teach them life skills (formerly known as wood shop, machine shop, and home ec-- and yes, supposed to be the province of their parents, but if they're going to be there 40 hours a week...), and give them the opportunity to move and interact and play (physical education and recess) while teaching them to simply live by the Golden Rule, we should have a well-educated citizenry, and "social justice" should take care of itself.Of course, that doesn't serve the ends of those who want to exploit an incompetent, lazy, in-fighting populace.
