Libs are to blame for the faultering education in the United States? I'm sorry-who came up with "No Child Left Behind"? Oh that's right, Dubya did, and then he underfunded it by 27 billion dollars.
youth of today are less intelligent than the baby boomer generation were/are. That is easy to prove with statistical comaprisons in education. Some kids today don't even know England is an island. & education has been controlled by Liberals for last 30 years. Who's to blame? libs obviously to a large extent.
Liberals are the only ones willing to put any money into buying new textbooks, adding technology into classrooms and increasing pay for teachers. 20 years ago Reagan tried to kill Head Start (a program to help kids who were high risk for academic problems) and he tried eliminate the ENTIRE Dept. of Education. It seems to me that Conservatives like you are trying to get rid of public education.
As a student entering the classrooms to be a teacher, your comments are unbelieveably offensive-to say that libs don't care education. None of my conservative counter-parts would dare entire the urban "focus" schools-because those kids are "bad". They could care less about kids who have to support a family at age 16, and they care less about kids who have no one to go home too. Maybe you should think about that. The problem with our education system is that everyone can point out what is wrong and how we're failing, but then no one wants to come in and help. No one wants to support the students.
And one more thing...if we're so far behind in math and science education, why do so many forigen students come here to study math and engineering? :???: Oh, that's right-because we're leading the engineering field.
This has nothing to do with fox-hunting. But I can't stand this stupidity that has gone on. Chromeboomerang, you should be ashamed. It is people like you who continue to breed hate towards people you don't agree with. In the United States we have freedom of speech and freedom of belief. The Democratic Party is the oldest party in the United States, and it isn't going anywhere. This country hasn't been hurt by liberals, and it hasn't been hurt by conservatives-it has been hurt by people who are scared to hear from the other side of the aisle.
