Because we need more state control of local schools?

This is ridiculous. Go to bed earlier. 6:30 a.m. is not the middle of the night. Get up. Teens willRead More just stay up later - they'll sleep past noon if given a chance.

Parents need to step up and regulate bed time. Most kids stay up way too late, are playing videoRead More games, using social media, tablets, smart phones, etc. This all makes it harder for the child to fall asleep at a decent time to get the a good amount of sleep. Kids would stay up all night if given the chance. Then they get up and have a sluggish start to their day. Doctor, I get your point, but it all begins at home and the parents need to be there to parent. Its not the school's fault.

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!

I couldn't help but to do some comparison between Stevenson and DHS as a resident in Deerfield,Read More since district has put up the news on the website. Operational spending per student is $16,839 in Stevenson and $20,821 in DHS. STEM ranking, #37 for Stevenson and #145 for DHS. I have been very disappointed in science teaching in DHS. Now I believe that there is some truth in the rankings.

Am I hearing NCLB? Regional culture is completely discounted. As a teacher of Social Studies, I amRead More appalled at the dismissal of SS in the Common Core Standards. Cause and effect are forgotten. We will be entering the age of vanilla education. It's very sad.
Tom Sanders November 11, 2013 at 01:34 pm
Common Core seems to be molding us "Stepford Students" -- thinking skills and creativityRead More seem to lose and the standard answers are accepted. -- it seems children are taught for a test and not for learning. The arts, Social Studies, creative writing and other education opportunities are the last to be addressed -- as administrations change in Washington, will the Common Core change based on the bias of the adminstration? We may have children who look smart, but what kind of citizens will they be -- not very well rounded in my book. Plus it seems we are teaching to the tests that score Common Core, what if you are not a good test taker? Teacher's jobs are on the line as well as our nation's future of artistic and well rounded citizens. in my opinion.

Being hurt is something you can't stop from happening, but being miserable is always your choice.Read More All schools are likely to have some problem with bullying at one time or another. It is important that your child’s school takes steps to reduce and prevent bullying. Parents and families have an important part to play in helping schools deal with bullying. Parents can protect and support their children through such a difficult situation by recognizing the signs of bullying. As a way of helping everyone especially the parents, who find it quite hard to manage time, I found this great service which featured a safety app which gets me connected to a Safety Network or escalate my call to the nearest 911 when needed, it has other cool features that are helpful for your kids with just a press of a Panic Button.
