We have to make people aware that our State is run by public employee Unions and we need court casesRead More like today which ruled that the California Teacher Tenure rules are unconstitutional so that we can change laws and vote people out of office who do not represent the interests of the public who pay the taxes.

Something that is interesting to note is that high school grads are going to four year universitiesRead More and studying subject that isn't marketable. While on the other hand you have people getting vocational training at vocational schools that essentially guarantees them a job out of school that will make them 'x' amount of money. So it isn't that college degrees are worthless, some are. It is also said that sometimes trade school is the right choice!

Standards eventually drive curriculum and Common Core actually lowers South Carolina's standards. IRead More don't care one bit how we rank internationally. Education should be a local and state issue without intrusion by the federal government. If educators really cared about proper education we would now see the streets filled with citizens who were protesting because they would have been taught the proper role of the federal government versus the state. Its really a simple document called the US Constitution that is the foundation of our republic.

The priority in SC is lower taxes. Obviously this is going to lower the cost of education byRead More streamlining the process. The textbooks probably have to be changed, but they are changed every few years anyway. Textbooks produced in greater volume will of course be cheaper. Any state that opts out will waste a lot of money by running their own show -- redundancy always ups costs. It is simple economics. We all want lower taxes, so get over it. SC can't afford a 'boutique' public school system. If you can't deal with it, use your tax savings on private schools. Don't force the rest of us to support a 'special status for SC.' At 48th in the US that curriculum isn't too successful anyway...certainly nothing worth paying extra $s for. And if you don't care about competing globally for jobs, you don't live in the real tough world the rest of us do.
Louis CK on 'Conan'

Love Louis C.K. and this interview. Regarding it though, I think that just like most everythingRead More else that communication and moderation is the key. And of course all kids are different. I don't particularly worry about my kids bullying or being bullied because I've talked to them about it. Both my kids (6 and 12) have access to the internet via phone/tablet/laptop, but I keep an eye on what they're doing and I ensure they also play outside/offline with friends in the neighborhood every day.

Good point! Then again, if MTP needs new schools then the TOMP should buy land and stop lettingRead More developers build on every square inch of town!
SharonNMPRes August 7, 2013 at 05:50 pm
TOMP doesn't need to buy the land. The district already owns the land in Carolina Park for theRead More school. All they need to do is put the school up!

This article states: "The lawsuit states that the town, the school system, the sheriff and ParkRead More West had known for some time about the problems at the intersection. Unlike other crossings, this intersection did not have a crossing guard or other signage at the time of Rogge's accident." If this statement is correct, why didn't the parent escort her daughter across the street instead of waiting at the opposite corner?

My thoughts exactly!!!
JoSCh June 5, 2013 at 08:49 pm
You're cherry picking this one statement and trying to imply that a kid getting hit in a crosswalkRead More after school where a car is already stopped and waiting for her is the parents fault. That's terrible. I hope this new breed of anti society extremist libertarians dies off quickly or moves away from or to the middle of the country.

Wow!

According to the link Wando is ranked 16th in the state. Interesting to note that Academic MagnetRead More had 7% economically disadvantaged students, where many of the other schools that I looked at on the list including Wando had at least double that.

Art is wonderful ! However, traditional overnight camps teach kids more than just hard skills theyRead More teach children how to get along with others, how to make decisions and build confidence in trying new things. A great place for this is Swift Nature Camp http://www.swiftnaturecamp.com
