If I Had Kids.....


Recommended Posts

http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-ch...0,7064053.story

 

If I had kids - I'd move to Oakland just so they could go to school here.

 

"Not many schools in California recruit teachers with language like this: "We are looking for hard working people who believe in free market capitalism. . . . Multicultural specialists, ultra liberal zealots and college-tainted oppression liberators need not apply."

 

And they produce the highest test scores in the state............

 

thanx, D

Most public schools these days allow students to get away with just about anything and a taecher cannot do much. I know I am one of them. Coming to class late, and truancy reign. What can we do but write a little detention which they do not serve. Administrators expect the teachers to solve all the problems and blame it on classroom management. You think our economy is bad now? How about the customer service attitude you get from any one under 25? Sorry Danny but you hit home on this one. The article is the real reason of our problems today. How many kids grow up with a father in the house. Not many. I've worked in public education for 21 years so I know what the problem really is. Thanks for attaching the article. :angry:

It is lack of parental units doing their duties....

That being said, it's more about having discipline and follow through support from administration,

with those, you can teach anyone, without, not so much...

Teacher expectation, and follow through, with clear consequences that's backed by admins ...

we need more of that,

I don't think it's teaching to the test or any special magic...

support in the trenches and covering sixes.... the rest is easy

My opinion is the parenting. When we were young if I got shit in school I'd get it worse once I got home. Nowadays parents won't raise there kids to show respect. We wouldnt of swore at any teacher not because of the teacher but because of what would happen when my folks found out. Teachers can only do so much. If they phone a parent at work to discuss their f@#$ed up kid the parent would flip for being disturbed by the teacher at work. My wife is a school social worker and you wouldnt believe the way parents come into schools screaming and swearing because little johnny got expelled for carrying a knife or threatining some other kids. If people would raise there kids to accept responsibility and show respect to others life would be so much better. ok I'm done . :1106:

Poor little Johnny etc. etc. Poor little baby etc. etc. Fuck it..... I used to walk to school in elementary. .. put on the mocassins and across the field I went for 3 miles ..in the winter . .with my brothers and sisters.

I once had a kid draw me a picture and ask "Are you my new daddy" -

 

While his mom was in the shower rinsing the man chowder of her back...

 

He actually showed great artistic ability -

 

Not quite on the same level as his pole spinning mom - But promise none the less.

 

Ah - To be 42 again...........

 

Thanx, D

You obviously haven't met my three children. They will show you respect. They have been raised properly by two parents, one of whom is a stay at home mother.

Fucked thing is, they feel strange compared to their friends. Not one of their friends in a multiple child home, have the same mother and father. His, hers, and theirs.

Our school system sucks here in Kali, for the most part, no two ways about it.

My second child graduates high school in two days. :D

We've been lucky out this way...again I think a lot has to do with the parents ('cept for mine), but when my oldest was in HS, actually from Grade School, his group of friends were never embarrassed to have mom or dad around and when they were dropped off at school or elsewhere it was always done with a kiss and a "I love you, I'll see you later." Guys and gals as well, they'd give each other shit if they didn't. Respect for mom and pop, and for those who didn't know pop, mom got it all... respect for all and they knew when they weren't, which was rarely....

 

 

Mikey now, well, we show him respect and he let's us know when we don't... :P wouldn't change it though... he graduates in 2 weeks...

Speaking of respect, one little thing that ticks me off is kids calling adults by their first names. Granted, a long time family friend may be an exception but I always insist my kids call their dance teachers, hockey coaches, scout leaders by Mr. or Mrs. so and so. To me calling an adult by their first name puts them on an even playing field. Which they are not.

 

Hard to be afraid of getting your ass whipped when your more of a "buddy/peer" than an adult with authority.

 

When I grew up you gave adults respect. I expect the same. Maybe I'm old fashioned but I'm willing to be wrong on this one.

Good on you Kim. :)

It takes parenting, that's for sure. But, we gotta have schools that are able to teach kids, not make them feel good about themselves. They will feel good about themselves when they start achieving things on their own. Our schools out here don't seem to get that concept. :angry:

When the kids in the neighborhood wanted to know my name, I told them it was Mr. Hamer. That's what they all call me (at least to my face!).

Your right, it let's them know that they are not my peers.
