I feel sorry for the guy, but I don't see this going his way due to the water-related investment the city has put into it and the it's obligation to avoid what happened in the drought of 1988. I completely get the emotional attachment and wanting everything "back where it belongs" before …

So by Gerhard's logic, every mortage and rent that anybody pays in the world is now "outdated" b/c apparently the bank or landlord should just take it on the chin b/c the "promised" money agreed upon from the occupant can be foolishly spent instead of living up to their financial responsi…

That's a great question. The number of students is an important part of the state's categorical payments to schools. So despite the whisteblowing that SHOULD happen, districts plug their noses and look the other way b/c otherwise they're not getting paid for the students in their building…

Smartone, that was a long post, but right on the money. Education has an absolute CRISIS on it's hands b/c over time we have allowed failed teachers (administrators, college professors, research experts, presenters) who are flat-out wrong about educational philosophy to dictate how it sho…

Esther is right on the money on this and has solid points throughout. There used to be a core majority of kids who would get their work done with a smaller core who wouldn't do anything, an 80% : 20% ratio. With 1:1, it has become more like a 60:40 ratio. They spend more time finding musi…

I would give A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G to have the luxury to do what that guy just did. "These initiatives suck. I'm RETIRING!!!" Good for him. Education is running, not walking, away from fundamental common sense, and the powers that be have the most out-of-touch view of what it's supp…

Everybody who posted is right on target. I would also add that this sustained systemic assault on the fallacy of "white privilege" devalues education as the costs skyrocket and takes away from true CAREER READINESS that college should be intended to exist for. If we were all non-…

I really enjoyed the classes I took with Bob at Heartland back in the day. Very straightforward teacher and an all around good dude, both of which I can appreciate. I am so sorry to hear that you're in failing health, and I will be hoping for the best.

This is super easy to explain. We have eroded student accountability so badly in K-12 education that they have no respect for quality assignment completion, deadlines, and work ethic. After doing everything to help these kids who have no drive, we plug our nose, pass them on, tell them tha…

c100, It goes on to say you can be up to 65K by the end of your 2nd year. If you don't have a family & want to see the country, this would be a great job. Unfortunately it'd be very hard to have a spouse okay with that and you yourself willing to miss on anything and everything back ho…
