Cursive will probably last as long as encyclopedias, libraries and Latin. The wheels turn taking usRead More toward the future. We turn with it or go out with encyclopedias.

The Common Core Standards will be a good thing. We have to have a basic floor of rigor to competeRead More with people who can afford a rigorous education. I am a former educator. The finest education was always at the forefront of our conversations at home and in our vacation and weekend time. I am 71 years old. Our society has changed since I was raised, but our schools have to provide what some home environments are not able due to both parents having to work, etc. We will not survive as a competitive county, state, and nation if we say no government interference & leave it up to the local household.

I do see both sides, but I've been saying for years that the public school system is in desperateRead More need of a curriculum upgrade. So far, everything I've seen with regard to common core has been a positive change.

My daughter doesn't have a face book or a cell phone and she is in 9th grade. Yet in school, inRead More class she endures bullies. The school is so under staffed they don't even see it or act on it to make it stop....very scarey

People really need to get a life. The uniforms are cute and as stated above they wear littleRead More spankies under them so it's not just their panties. It amazes me what people focus on.... How about we get back to promoting the activities that bring the students together and build excitement instead of putting a damper on them.

These are special occasion outfits not daily wear and should not be put into the same category.

Either the dresscode applies to all, or it should apply to none. These girls are not special.

Had the pleasure to meet Mr. Stevenson at a recent community event. He is doing great things for theRead More community!

Well this is just great. But I guess we should continue school cuts until children just go to aRead More building that used to be a school and get two meals a day with babysitters (administrators) rather than teachers. It scares me that we aren't throwing everything we have at schools to try to improve their funding, and the way that children view learning. If society as a whole put a higher priority on education then so would the kids going through it. High School diplomas and GEDs should be mandatory as well as this point.

This rough economy makes people do things they wouldn't normally do it doesn't necessarily meanRead More they're criminals good luck Ms Slone
LRB May 22, 2013 at 06:31 pm
The economy doesn't make people behave any certain way. People either have honesty and ethics orRead More they don't. The economy doesn't create thieves, people behave as a result of their personal response to the temptation, in this case the 'cash'. Sorry Rj, the 'rough economy' is an excuse to justify a poor decision... a thief IS a criminal...

We have plenty of strip clubs in Pasco County. That my friend would have been more respectable.
