Shit or get off the pot...

So, I'm one of those that believes one can only complain about something for so long before either doing something about it, or just shut up about it. I'm trying to decide what to do about our educational program here in La La. I intend to do some research about what my (read Speedy's) tax dollars are going for in the area of education. Because, honestly, I must say it's not for the betterment of the MS educational system.

So far, in Kindergarten, my children have witnessed choking, spitting, throwing objects at others, and my favorite - mooning. Did I mention Kindergarten is the grade? And did I mention that we are supposedly in a good school district? Somehow, my feeble mind thought it would be different. That learning would actually occur within the educational system. That is, learning reading, writing & arithmetic - not horrendous behavior. I really did think that we would have a few more years before having to deal with that kind of thing. Apparently, I was WRONG. And I hate saying I'm wrong.

So, my newest goal is to research my Reps & Senators here in the Bible Belt & continually ask them for change. Because you know what - that whole "No Child Left Behind?" - it can kiss my ass. The kids that are getting left behind are the ones we will want running our country one day & if we leave them behind now, they will leave us all in the shit hole then.

Thanks Marcus for getting me to think on this.

If I had known that starting a blog would coax you into the same thing, I would have done it months ago!

The simplest solution to your education issues is to move here. God knows that the system is not perfect here by any stretch of the imagination, but it is a lot better than most places!
