Is the "Southern Poverty" Law Center an unbiased expert on the subject? Just asking. ItRead More seem they are the go-too liberal think tank on an "right wing extremist" group. I wonder if they keep a dossier on Al Sharpton's group or the New Black Panther Party?

Sunny do you have any scientific information whatsoever to back up your asinine comment?

Politics aside, something is screwy with this methodology. Churchill and Clarksburg don't even rankRead More despite numbers above most of the list some of which are laughably worse by comparison yet still received national rankings… Somehow I don't see a rush on folks moving from Potomac for what US News is naming as better schools down county. Unless I'm missing some byzantine aspect of the algorithm, by the list's own numbers those two schools should rank on the first page and I'd guess it's full of similar omissions and errors in areas I'm less familiar with…

Roger, if funding was an issue then the DC schools, Chicago Schools, and Detroit schools which haveRead More a higher per pupil funding then any of the schools listed on this report would be numbers one, two, and three.

I don't disagree with you that we're becoming less and less a free country but it's wrong to blameRead More democrats alone. It wasn't dems alone that passed the patriot act. It hasn't been dems alone that have been re-uping it since it was passed the first time. On how bad Hillary will be as a president. Every president is bad in some ways. Reagan raised taxes more than a dozen times. Bush took us to war on two fronts with no way to pay for it. Clinton signed DOMA and DADT. Obama gave away the farm in order to get the Affordable Care Act passed. Papa Bush said that atheists shouldn't be considered Americans. Sure Hillary will be a bad president in some ways.... they are all bad in some way. I can tell you this much though, any president is going to be a worse president when the publicly stated goal of the opposition is to obstruct that president at any and all opportunities. The dems did it to Bush. The republican'ts are doing it to Obama. It's like Palestine and Israel, they'll fight to the death out of spite and habit, neither one of them knowing which one threw the first punch and not caring because winning is the only goal. What America needs are citizens that go into government for the good of the country instead of the good of their party.

Oh, one last point on your last post B. Dub. "Hillary presidency combined with a DemocraticRead More Congress." Ain't gonna happen. Republicant's have gerrymandered the states to absolute death. They have the House for the foreseeable future and they have a good chance at getting the Senate. I can't guarantee you who's going to win in 2016 but I can very well guarantee you that no one party will take executive and legislative branches, both.

with caller ID they should be able to point to the caller. Sorry but an out of state telephoneRead More number should be a tip off.
Eddie April 24, 2014 at 08:52 am
The caller used Skype, via the Internet, and will probably never be found if he took certainRead More precautions unless he's running his mouth about this prank.

@ eddie, I wouldn't mention any specific phone-calling service in case any other arseholes areRead More looking for tips. But for better or worse, those calls are traceable. They have "add-ons" that can fool your friends, but certainly not the NSA. BTW, that phone service was bought by Microsoft a couple of years ago- so much for any illusion of confidentiality. By using it, you "opt in" to give up your privacy, just like with G-mail. Using a computer to make a prank call is a dumb move in itself. Any computer transmits a wealth of information. Non-smart phones are a lot less traceable than anything else. Have you ever seen how many items advertisers and other web sites use to uniquely identify your computer? They can't tell your name but track your unique computer. It's called "computer fingerprinting." As soon as you give your name at a web site they track, they've got you. Check this site sometime to see how unique your computer is-- https://panopticlick.eff.org/ .... I suspect that nobody's putting much effort into tracing this call, because in the big scheme of things, they've got more serious things to deal with. (Unfortunately, unlike our local PDs.) Shame this idiot got so much publicity from his crime. I think the glorifying news "perp walk" should be stopped in virtually all cases.

I am a whole hearted support of the United States Supreme Court and my 1st amendment right to sayRead More what I said because I support Cheif Justice Robert, But he and his group is dangerouslly Silly. Inner City Education where the teachers promoted a theory if I get one child to college after 13 years I have done my job the educational system in this country was built to make you a servent not a thinker. In a class of 30 that teacher and teachers focus on just one. I believe if he/she focus on 29 being able to read and write do math, understood science, then she did her job and still had work to do one was left behind. But let thanks President Reagan for giving us the Preppy look.

THE TRUTH SHOULD BE FLAG AS inappropriate
Everyday Mathematics is just one of the programs that makes a heck of a lot of $ off of the millions of textbooks sold to schools that teach to the 'Core.' The Common Core isn't just restricting for teachers & students, it's lining people's pockets.

Gary's post is full of falsehoods.
CowDung April 24, 2014 at 12:22 pm
"Agreements or addenda" are not part of the Common Core. Again, if states are doing theirRead More own thing by adding stuff or agreeing to do something different, it isn't Common Core.
Millsey April 24, 2014 at 02:46 pm
If it's on the internet it must be true? A small group of parents make up some "facts" andRead More post it on random news sites. So it must be true? I'm in favor of trusting the actual sources of the program over a blog that someone created because they are afraid of their kids getting a better education.
