I am responsible for my own children since I had them. So it is my responsibility as well to see them educated to my standard or expectations. That means paying their way and getting them to the school I choose to send them too. (NOT SOMEONE ELSES RESPONSIBILITY) or putting them at risk by bussing them across town everyday. "Children dont ask to be born" and if your income cant support a child, then dont have one and if you have more children than your anuual income can pay for then it should be a felony offense for stealing from others or from people who dont have or want children. HOWEVER, I am punished by having to pay for other children who came as a tax break or entitlment to some dumb$%% who wants to ride the system. Not to mention my child is paced in the classroom to the slowest learning curve. Now my child is being punished for other children with these dumb$$$ parents who dont assist their children at night with their studies. As for me home schooling, I still have to pay school taxes even when child dont goto a public school. Double Taxation at its best. SO Roland is dead on spot. Take care of your own so I can take better care and provide more opportunity for mine. If you cant afford your kids, maybe some Repubic or Libtard should help with getting these children adopted out to parents that will stand up and support them as they should be with a better chance at a better future.
As I stated before, spend the money on connecting schools with a computer because the staff and faculty are all connected. Shopping, union chit chat, self development personl gains
Many teachers get their education this way so why cant the children.
This is just my opinion.
I agree with amny things you have stated, BUT!!
328ebsite "If we can get some of our kids to school, like everyone else, and get those problems solved several hundred times a day, every day of the school year, for only a million dollars in annual transportation costs: that's a bargain."
This seems to be a settlement for cause and that is unacceptable by all means. I have small children in the school system here and refuse settlement of a process("a bargain"). These people were put into office to support our kids and create a enviroment for them to learn. What happens when a bus full of these kids has an really bad accident? Now whos the blame goto? there is no cost value for a lost child. All children are pricless. I pay enough taxes (along with everyone else) that these kids should have good education tools and learning enviroment next to their home without having to bus them all over town. Maybe there should be some pay cuts at the top,look at their homes and where their kids got to school (public vs private, pension plans etc. Im sure many would fix this issue for half the price just to get rid of the high salaried crooks and help the kids and the communities.
A new town would mean less money for chattanooga city = less money for littlefield = comparison between good mayor and bad mayor?
Just my opinion!! It would seem to me that with $830,000 X 2 or 3 years, the schools could buy enough computers (base models)for the students desk and install in the class rooms across the city and county with some decent school material and link the schools together. MANY TEACHERS GET THEIR DEGREES THIS WAY!!!!
Major colleges and universities are providing accredited degrees this way daily.
What cant be baught or forced is parents responsibility to step up and make their kids do homework at home and keep them off the streets. (white,black,green, yellow,rich or poor and race dont matter)It is not the teachers place to raise the children but to provide an opportunity at education in the classroom with the parents helping them at home as well. So my point here is no matter how you waste or spend money on these transfers, the kids are put at risk by all of the transporting back and forth and the parents are trying to find after school care for the odd schedules of the transporting(costly as well). This also invites segratgation and negative diversity in our community (sadley there is plenty who like the tension and make a living from it) They should find a new job or life. This is 2012. Time to move ahead!!!!! This would provide a level playing field for all students of all races,cultures and everything else in between.
Im sure the faculty is all linked together by computers using the same systems when they want to shop or play the market during school hours or work on collective bargaining with their unions or even politic for a higher position for their personal gains.
Did I mention the jobs this would create?install?maintain? Savings in school insurance? Risk to the kids on the transport buses?
This is just a thought.
All comments are welcome towards me. Converations builds foundations and new ideas whether we agree or not.
If you exchange the posters and editards of the paper with the players,Mosaic management and city government, in my mind everyone should have seen this coming (Mosaic Shutdown). Sad to see the TFP cave to indirect goverment(nanny)control. No matter how bad I may have been offened or pissed off at some comments posted, I respected the other person for their convictions or views. I guess now it will be the TFP way or the hwy. Its was fun while it lasted. I will find another paper to read. P.S I hate to think anyone would put strentgh and foundation in facebook stories.
Just a simple question comes to mind. What are they doing about the over crowded jails in the city and county jurisdictions? Will they be shutdown as well. I feel the pot is calling the kettle black here. I disagree with the violence and feel all should be punished for their crimes to the fullest extent. Just my thought and opinion.
Yes I agree with that, maybe someone would put in a riverwalk area between the marina and the camp ground and generate some much needed funds for that area. Many other cities in teneesee have this already and it brings tourism and money from the outside. Just a thought:)
I smell a progressive lib dem here, you know "wealth distribution and social entitlement waiting in line to get what you have worked for by the use of your smarts or hard physical work". I guess they are jockying for the next protected class of people.
The comptroller’s study found that average attendance figures — which play a key role in determining the level of state funding — are self-reported by schools, and that there is little the state can do to verify those numbers. There is no statewide standard for counting the average attendance and no penalties for inaccurate reporting, according to the report.
This must be why Bradely county votes against school vouchers for parents that want to send their kids to a private school. It also shows that the state cant manage itself, so why should the state try to manage a parent when choosing their childs source of education? The pot calling the kettle black?
"I know we need more money and we cannot afford to give anybody any of the money we receive," Weathers said. "How can we afford to give any of our money to any private school, no matter what the argument may be?"
Beside sounding like a true nannystate liberal, Not all children are compatible with a public school enviroment, why should those parents who choose private or alternative education be denied, punished or choice when trying to provide their child an education.
