PS about large class sizes being a problem. When I went to college one Professor would lecture a class of some 300. And it never occurred to anyone to be of a distraction to the class!
So why does a teacher have to put up with it in grade school? Do some children in our educational system really amount to what might be termed retarded? It is not politically correct to say. But maybe the nature of being a retard comes from poor parenting. How do we teach people how to be good parents? I actually liked the idea of the bad kid being put in the school prison room. What mature and educate adult has patience to handle such a kid? It is ridiculous. And why should taxpayer money be wasted to fund their one on one education? You were told to sit still and shut up! If you can't do that why should we foot the more expensive bill to have you educated? You sit still and keep your mouth shut. Somehow I just knew that! I just had that level of respect for the adult teachers. So how do you educate someone that cannot meet that basic standard? They don't required the spoiled attention of special education. Face the reality you would not trust them to drill in your teeth as adults would you? You probably would trust them to put the oil plug back in your cars engine pan either as adults. They have limited potential because of poor parenting so why can't we just face that reality? Why do we have to provide hope for them to become, I don't know a political leader or corporate executive. That child's education should revert back to the responsibility of the parent that had them and the reality faced? Or do we allow them to dance all over the desks in class because George Bush thinks its the right thing to do? I don't get it!
PPS I bet there are some foreign countries that have higher test scores than we do in the United States that beat the Devil out of those bad kids! And maybe it does the bad kid good in life? Maybe not. Who knows. By a bad kid one who physically harms others, can't sit still and listen and becomes a distraction by talking or getting out of his seat, tries to sell yours drugs. Good three part definition there.
PPPS And what responsible and caring parent drinks Alcohol? There is not a one that does!
PPPPS And rather than addressing the issue as mental retardation we redefine mental retardation to be politically correct per George Bush era self serving heart felt Conservatives to be Attention Deficit Disorder? or Whatever they want to call them. Just not a retarded kid who is also mean to others. Nope we don't dare hint at your Conservative children being that! Nope we are going to apply the Marine Doctrine here as no child left behind. George why don't you try and teach a classroom full of them? As President you had the least patience for the most intelligent and insightful questions didn't you. I even remember you commenting that a certain reporter was a total asshole! Romney was about the same as you wasn't he? And most of Conservatives are either head in the sand after the event or insulting to ovoid thinking to provide an answer that has a valid solution. Anybody understand me?
PPPPPS Do you think that I am cold hearted with regard to responsibility for that retarded child reverting back to the parent. That is kind of implying a leave the old man on the ice policy and walk away isn't it? I can tell you without out a doubt that our health care system will negligently care for your elderly parent who worked all his life and he will die years sooner than he could because of people like that? So if we are leaving people out on the ice can't there be some logical discretion to it?
Here would be the theme of an interesting story for your drama Cable television network. "Please don't come for my retarded daughter even though she just physically killed someone." I dare you to tackle that one!
