That's one thing I love about raising my children in a small community. You don't have the "luxury" of wanting to segregate your children from others. My children have friends from all different socio-economic, religious backgrounds!
"Socioeconomically"! Yep, that says a lot right there!
she almost slipped up and said "racially" [what she was also thinking]
Trumpet Lessons...the poor little bastard.Now if it were Banjo that would be another thing.
My kids have to drive by three school from the neighboring district to get to their districts school. Socieconomic is a good excuse, but common sense needs to be used.
Maybe she should move her kids to private school. Better yet, pack up your shit and move to Highland Park! Oh wait, she may not be on the "top" of the socioeconomic ladder there! Biotch! Sad thing is, I bet her kids act just like her!
One word "Bussing". Been there done that. It wasn't fun either. That's one thing they left off of that 70's show.
I wonder if they get swine flu in Plano?
11:38, don't kid yourself. The same attitude exists in small town America.
I didn't hear that lady say what you translated her words to be.Mmmmmmm...looks like your doing the same thing to her as you accused someone else of doing to you. Does this ding-a-ling a bell for you?"Manshadow Waylett attacks me in a Letter To The Editor for something I never said nor implied last week. (I'm not sure why "value" is in quotes since it is not a word I used.)
What pray tell is a "Manshadow Waylett"?
Hope my kids don't drink from that "lower socio-economic" water fountain. You know the "Democrat fountain".
That lady must be related to "wordvyle" or "ms. crap" could even be DC's sister.
Now you know why Sandy is so important to us all.
I am not defending her in any way but to the extent that the "other" parents are not involved in their children's education and it diminishes my child's ability to be educated then I would have some similar concerns.
2:43 I understand your concerns, but.....With an involved parent like you, those students will have very little impact on the education of your children!My hope is that "those students" will, in spite of their raisin', overcome. They should have the same opportunity! What they choose to do with that opportunity is their choice.BTW, they probably won't be competing with my kids in the job market!
I've studied this issue long and hard and it seems that the only plus is - better soccer teams!
You know....so what?I moved from Dallas to McKinney because I didn't want my kids going to Dallas schools. Did that decision have anything to do with socioeconomics? Of course it did.This is just the way it is folks. In Decatur, all kids go to the same schools, but everyone just refers to those kids as "from across the tracks", or "the other side of town"...or whatever.Call it right or wrong, call me names, but it's been this way for a long time...probably always will be.
I love how she kind of whispered "socioeconomic".Hey lady, you know there's a camera on you? Whispering doesn't make you any less offensive.
That just plays right into your liberal little hippie hands, doesn't it. Oh well, having lived through the busing years, I can tell you that forcing kids to go to school away from their home districts is not the answer. The answer is to unload topheavy ISD administrative costs, dump the "political correctness", pay teachers a high enough salary to actually encourage competence, and improve all of the schools...or become President and put your kids in a high dollar private school. Strength comes from unity, not diversity. Just look at what the drive for more and more diversity has done to California: that place is almost belly up.And to reiterate: WTF is a "manshadow waylett"?
Where were the parents wearing purple t-shirts? My Other Brother Darryl
i am a poor kid and i want to hang with rich kids, so step down bit@#
That's not what she said. She said the boundaries should be drawn on the basis of "what makes sense" geographically and socioeconomically. How can anyone judge from the clip whether or not what makes sense to her is segregation or integration? She does not say one thing that actually indicates her view one way or the other. Instead, because she is white, we stereotyped her as thinking a certain way. If the clip would have shown a black or hispanic mom saying EXACTLY THE SAME THING, we would have assumed in the other direction, and most of the comments on here would be totally different.
Manshadow Waylett is a man: check out Barry's "The Spin"
If we told you who Manshadow really is, we'd have to extinguish you.
The truth of the matter is that the "poor" kids (the ones whose parents don't give a hoot about their involvement or education, not those without $$) are dragging down districts all over the country. Not their fault.The districts are forced by NCLB to tailor thier programs to focus on the weaker students and essentially ignoring the higher needs of the stronger students.Most, but not all, of the kids from "across the tracks" around here are only in school until they can legally drop out and go hang drywall with uncle julio anyway!Focusing all the districts efforts on them is a waste of time and MY valuable, hard-earned tax dollars!
to 10:01 pm:AmenThe poor kids are poor for a reason, and that is that their parents are generally unmotivated welfare cases or potheads. It's a cycle, and why should they drag down the kids from the families that give a damn?
Prolly don't want their kids going to school with D Crane's.
Family wealth does not determine how well a student does. Lots of stupid rich kids, lots of smart poor kids. Both wealth and student performance are a result of other more basic factors.
Come later this year, new lines will be drawn in Decatur because of next year's opening of the new elem. school. It will be interesting where those will be.
hey my mom smokes pot
