      I will click it soon. I understand the thread title is for triggering. Been here done that for years.........so no rush. Unless Rush is the one splaining what is wrong.

        :harvey2:...........you do realize that state govt. are mostly conservative. They dictate what teachers teach. They dictate what is on the ALL IMPORTANT tests.........teachers are teaching to the test. Your culture of blame is a good one though. Keeps the trumpers engaged and their chants of the moment loud. But maybe you mean all the liberal colleges where all those professors are trying to impart communism from their ivory towers to all our 18yr old vessels of emptiness. There was a conversation about how hard it is to get into UF now the other day. Apparently you have to be a very motivated genius to get into UF now. Im guessing those youngsters are pretty smart and not easily lead by those terrible PhDs with their socialists bent. Breath easier my friend.

          Socialism is very tempting because it promises fairness and something for nothing, every teenager's dream. Unfortunately, it leads to totalitarianism, war, and poverty.

          The real problem with education is government control. Sociopaths vie to control the government and that's who controls education.

          It is the parents' responsibility to provide food, clothing, and shelter. It is also the parents' responsibility to provide education. If we had a free market in education with no government support (aka coercion) there would be many affordable choices. In fact, there are many affordable choices for homeschooling now. People seem not to be aware that free compulsory government education was one of the planks of Marx's Communist Manifesto. Education is not a right, and like virtually everything else it is poorly supplied by government.

            I have a bridge that connects Brooklyn and Manhattan. Would you be interested in a purchase or lease?

            Your distrust of our hard working and motivated youth is not surprising. Throughout history the youth have been blessed with their elders wringing of hands and despair at the future in the hands of the new. So what is the going price today on that bridge. I have some retirement funds stashed away somewheres. My lawyer :law: has to look over the papers first. If they have been on the bottom of your birdcage recently let me know so I can warn him. He is hard core.

              I don't distrust children. But, even academically very advanced kids are generally politically and economically naiive. They are vulnerable the first time away from home, and are easily brain washed.

                  Those that can, teach those that cant teach, teach gym Woody Allen.
                  Now as a NY man of the Hebrew faith his reference to gym was in reference to what they call PE up there.
                  I never taught PE with a gym so I guess i was just coach. Mullens is called coach. I like that parallel better.

                    Name me a time when the previous generations did not disparage the youth of the country? It is a rite of passage to pump our chests and say that the younger generation has it easier, they are lazy, they do not know what we went through and take things for granted, etc. Lather, rinse, repeat.

                    And coach, thank you for being a teacher. It is not an easy job. I am 54, I got my Master's three years ago just so I can teach college hospitality. It is hard to find a full time gig since I do not have a PhD, but I want to mentor students and make a difference in their lives. Kudos to you.

                            It is also a failure of parents. Those that won't or can't properly raise them should not have them. Now many parents don't live in the real world, but in that fantasy alternative reality that progressives live in. They argue with others but when asked rational questions have no real answers.

                            Single payer health insurance is only one answer, climate change another. There are so many examples that we really need to move more responsibility and authority to the states so that those that want a fantasy reality and will pay for it can try to have it.

                                You speaking of the hard working youth that were so distraught after Hillary lost that Universities provided safe spaces and counseling? That youth? You know the one's that were raised on Participation Trophy's and no scoreboards?

                                  Bernie might be right when he says a college degree today is equivalent to a high school degree 50 or 60 years ago, but not in the sense he means it.

                                  What's wrong with working in a factory or on a farm?

                                    Dude:

                                    You keep pushing your fecal material.

                                    I live in a VERY RED state and the Public Schools, especially the school boards are Progressive and SUCK.

                                    Our worst Governor, a Progressive, was a former educator and she could not hit her ass with both hands. She had a TOTAL MELTDOWN during Katrina and tried to blame BUSH.

                                    My son, a member of a State Champ. ROTC unit, had a principal that would not let recruiters in the main campus in uniform.

                                    And we know who you vote for.

                                        Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
