We all know that Hispanics teens mature quicker than Anglos
Just because hispanics start popping out one kid after another just as soon as they can breed... does not qualify as maturity! Sure glad the Anglos are here to pay for all of them though!
Speaking of education, why are the kids that (will) reside in the apartments across from the middle school (old high school) going to Carson Elementary? Somehow, that doesn't make sense. There are more students enrolled in Rann so I understand the idea that they would want to even out the numbers however, most districts redraw the lines. Students in those apartments will have to ride a bus when they could walk to Rann. This doesn't seem very efficient on the district's part. Of course, there are politics that I probably don't know about so who knows what lies behind the decision. It would seem that certain people are trying to keep certain segments of the population out of Rann Elementary. We all know what cheap three bedroom apartments bring. I would like to look into a crystal ball and ask if a 500k and up gated community went up across the street from Carson Elementary, would those kids go to Rann?
I have to post on the 8:20 post. This is what happens when high density housing (apartments) moves in: Even in the best of locations, after a brief occupation by young professionals, the rents fall and the lower income folks move in. You can pack a lot of school age children into a 100 unit apartment complex. Since the apartment complex is not now all that desirable and rents are down, the Appraisal District responds with values that won't provide enough tax revenue to contribute much to the expenses of educating the children who live there. A $20,000 per unit apartment complex just isn't going to pay much in property taxes. So if you are living in your 4,000 square foot McMansion, guess who is paying taxes to educate the children of the illegals who built your home. Lets take it another step. Apartment dwellers tend to contribute more to the crime rate than folks living in single family homes. Again, with a low tax base per dwelling unit for the high density housing, who pays for the added police. So, if the great leaders of Decatur continue to change zoning from single family to higher density types of zoning and issue building permits to build these human rabbit hutches, then they will screw up the town. The first sign will show up in lower average test scores in the schools, and higher crime rates, and lower property values across the board. Yep, keep building those apartment complexes. I don't know what this has to to with a turned on teacher taking liberties with a student.
8:20 and 11:16 You guys have way too much time on your hands.......We're talking about a teacher banging a kid.......
1:34,No, I have children (and while not equally important by a long shot, property value to consider). I know what it is like to grow up in a town that was so poorly zoned that it turned into a ghetto. Believe me, you DO NOT want "refugees" from the ghetto moving here. They already are here, really. They are angry kids whose parents don't give a rat's hiney about their kids because they are too busy partying or experiencing their second adolescence. So, the kids act out in their schools in front of MY children and take up valuable instructional time while the teacher has to continually discipline them. These kids aren't isolated incidents either. I'm not elitist, I'm realistic. I DO NOT want kids with behavior problems in the same class with my kids. And historically, kids from low socio-economic families usually come with baggage. Those apartments across from the middle school are cheap apartments at best. Just wait....you'll see.
A tip for 1:34 from 11:16: Go to the Texas Education Agency website and make use of the statistical data in their "Snapshot" that is available there. It gives information for each school district in Texas. In the "Snapshot" pay attention to: Test scores including SAT and ACT, teacher turn over rates, teacher to student ratios, percent of economically disavantaged students, etc. Look at these numbers for at least the past five years to see if there are any changes occuring in the district that might show the beginning of a downhill slide for the district. All this information and much more is available there for your analysis. Find a good school district and move. Children are all we have in this world to pass on.
11:07 that is where you are wrong my friend. I have herpes.
Did they finish those apartments? If not the city needs to seize them for dorms and convert the the old HS for Weatherford College classes. That's what they would do if I owned them anyway.
She looks retarded
