Back on topic: The success of any school has very little to do with poverty and minority students, and much to do with the relationship, positive or negative, the school has with the students, parents and community it serves. When the school environment is overall negative this is not a positive atmosphere conducive to learning. On the other hand when the school environment is a positive one, the children will learn. Not only will they learn, they will super succeed at learning.

Busing students to another school isn't going to help them learn any better. Especially so if the school environment is hostile towards them. Overtime, if the relationship between teacher, student and parent is a negative or hostile one, the learning process will begin to crumble too.

The only thing a successful school has that a failing school doesn't is that positive relationship between student, parents and teaching staff. That's because teachers who teach at those schools usually also live in the community as the students they teach. Their own children often attend the same school and are friends with the students they teach. A teacher isn't going to be quick to fail a student who lives right next door or is a friend of their own child. Nor are they likely to call police on that student when he or she cuts up and get into other kinds of mischief.

My name is Jason April. Not that it matters. Why don't you reveal your true self? I don't mean just by name either. I know you from your comments on other forums. I've never known you to have any real like or love for minorities, and especially not for African-American minority people and their children. In fact, I recall just the opposite on past occasions where you posted on other discussion forums.

Strnger. Some individuals posting here claiming to be so concerned about failing students are the same ones who once argued against them being bussed to those better schools. They lashed out, making derogatory and demeaning statements against theirs, their neighbors and friends children having to attend school alongside those inner city %$#@! They weren't shy with their derogatory use of words either. No one should be at all convinced these individuals suddenly grew compassionate for inner city children.

Just because someone has the title of teacher in front of their name doesn't make them qualified to be in charge of America's most vulnerable and impressionable.

To conservative: These type of intolerance and hypocrisy acts were the norm under Bush, they just weren't worthy of any local editorial page. That's a part of right wing sneaky and sly manipulation. Playing the innocent victim.

  1. Concerning torture, i.e., waterboarding; what about the 2,977 innocent people who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001? Whether we want to admit it or not, we are at war. There are groups in the world that are obsessed about slaughtering U.S. citizens. As a veteran, the first rule of war is "there aren't any rules."

We hate to remind you Mr. Sutton of Hiawassee Ga. But more than 95% of those tortured had no ties to terrorists or terrorism. That's not to say they didn't sign up to become a terrorist after being tortured.

One particularly sad case in many is that of Mr. El-Masri, a German national, who was kidnapped and spirited away to afghanistan for four years, where he was tortured. His is only one case in perhaps thousands.

In the short term, that may all sound good. But what will history, in the long term, say about it? Actually, most AA's I've spoken with are concerned that America's first AA president might be recorded in history as the assassinating president. That it makes a mockery of Dr. King's vision and platformm of non-violence. That at some point in time, this may come back to haunt AAs as a group. It's naive that past administrations likely knew all along where Bin Laden was, but refused to go after him. Ever wonder why? Maybe they didn't want that blood on their hands? For whatever reason. Remember, after all the hoopla about going after Bin Laden, Bush Jr. said Bin Laden was not a priority?

Why such paranoia Mr. Brown? My parents always said paranoia is the birth child of guilt. What if someone wanted to alert you that you're roof was on fire, but hesitated because you now have reputation for being the neighborhood crazy man that takes pics of anyone who knocks your door?

Why are Americans so paradnoid? What horrors have you gone out into the world and committed that would warant such intense paranoia?

It's obvious E. LEE GERALDSON has been drinking far too much right wing juts kool-aide. What in the world is he rambling about? Are the eight years of Bush et company destruction of America just suddenly to disappear and be forgotten because right wingers now have a scapegoat in the White "P"'s House?

They'd have to darn near empty both the sheriff and chattanooga police departments, then start over from scratch. You're not going to get rid of something that's become ingrained in the profession without tearing up the entire foundation and starting over from scratch. Some of the ones going after Hammonds have committed much worse. They're not going after Hammonds for what he did to help a friend. They're going after him for more personal vendetta reasons.

Andrew Lohr said:__"Speaker Gingrich found deficits and (sort of) balanced the budget; Speaker Gingrich presided over an economy that created jobs"

Not According to the Center For American Progress, Andy. excerpt: " There are, indeed, two main heroes in the story of the remarkable budget surplus of 1998, but neither of them are Newt Gingrich or his Republican Congress. It turns out that their contribution to deficit reduction did more harm than good. No, the true heroes of deficit reduction were, first, President Clinton, whose 1993 budget—passed without a single Republican vote—raised taxes on the wealthy and dramatically altered the nation’s fiscal path, and second, a steadily improving economy. Those two factors, and particularly the interaction between them, account for virtually the entire fiscal improvement. Contrary to the Gingrich assertion, legislation passed by the Republican-led Congress of 1995 through 1997 combined to actually worsen the fiscal situation—albeit slightly.
