Jack is Back!

First and pissed since once again my post on last thread is the last one.

Jack is Back!

Reposting:

For some reason, I guess on an intellectual, intelligence gathering, observing, calculating plane, I found this analysis very interesting. I had to read it twice to really get to its conclusions as spot on.

100% Matriculation, 100% College acceptance.

Which Charter School can show that?

henry

JiB, compare to Milwaukee Public Schools...Charters are way better. Sadly, Gov Evers is owned by the teachers unions (as he was his many terms as state superintendent of schools).

Remember schools are there to keep the teachers voting prog, plus any brainwashing those imbeciles can perform. Educating children is way down the list.

clarice

The Wa Po ran an article this week showing that certain ethnicities were being given HS diplomas in the very high income Montgomery Country school system even though they were not attending classes. (Think of that. It most cost taxpayers a minimum $12 K per year per student and they are handing out diplomas to kids who are not attending, probably the very kids who ost need to attend.)

In DC there are a lot of complaint by the administration that charter schools are drawing away as many as 50% of the publicly financed students from public schools , increasing costs because there's also demands to keep non performing schools operating.

Sorry--I'm quite tired today.

increasing costs because there's also demands to keep non performing schools operating.

I thought part of the point of charter schools was to be able to shutter the failing public (non-charter) schools.

Narciso79

The problem is the state tests are garbage as to establishing what students should know, so is the curriculum but that's another story.

henry

Jimmyk, in Milwaukee the School District wont shut “neighborhood schools” down, or sell / lease close school buildings to charters. More open schools means more admins & teachers (ie more union dues). Cost effective education is never in the program.

Narciso79

That's outrageous clarice but yet not surprising.

MissMarple2

Jack,

Thanks for posting that article. I agree, and will add a couple of other things I know:

1. That show The Apprentice was watched by a bazillion people over the 13 years it ran, and everyone felt like they KNEW him.

2. Trump attended Marble Collegiate Church in Manhattan, Presbyterian and NORMAN VINCENT PEALE'S CHURCH!!

having been to a rally here, I will tell you that there are indeed all types of people, who will wait in line for hours and sit patiently, once in, and are wildly excited to see him. And they talk to you about how glad they are to have someone who LISTENS to them, and understands.

I don't think anyone can beat him unless there is massive fraud.

It is so bloody hot here today I can't believe it. I was just out transplanting some plants (3 more to go) and that really was a mistake. My guess is it's 148 degrees.

Exactly, Henry.
And yes, Narciso, a lot of the classroom stuff is a waste of time if you're smart (and your parents have taught you a lot). OTOH these kids--probably are not in that category and are just being passed thru so no one can make a (fake) claim of discrimination,

Narciso79

I would have said add me to the indictment:

I've been in the belly (more like the esoohagus) they are not learning basic things year to year, but to automatically pass them is more of the travesty

MissMarple2

Melinda,

Thanks for that Atkisson article.

I knew the thing was bogus from the start. Trump is 2 years older than I am, and he grew up during the Cold War, just like me. I have an innate distrust of Russians stemming from my fears of them in my youth, and I imagine he carries some of those same feelings. Especially so, since Putin is ex-KGB.

In addition, Trump doesn't like anybody being in his business, particularly someone like Vladimir Putin.

The whole story was concocted by Hillary and Obama because that is JUST the sort of thing they would do, commie-lovers as they are.

So the wire may have been true as far as ot went but it's really the question of the curriculum not the test itself

The original vision for charters was hatched by systems theorist, Bela Banathy, in the early 70s as a means to transform education away from an academic focus. I have all the documents and people are surprised, if they actually read the charter, that they eesentially create a vision that aligns with what I laid out as Transformational outcomes based education in my book.

It can be better than a regular public school, but they have a surprising vision of what constitutes student achievement.

On famous brushes, I sat next to the then head of apple on a flight to west coast and learned stories about other well-known tech heads in the mid 90s.

Plus I was in SF for an arbitration that left me no time to go home for weekend so son and hubby came to visit me. Had a room at the mandarin oriental (now the Loew's) looking out over the bay bridge and julia child was staying there as well. She saw my 4 year old son's curls and started running her hands through his hair with that high pitched voice crooning "what a cute little boy."

Had barry goldwater sit behind me in first class when I was coming back from a meeting in dc and the flight continued on from arizona from dc. He either drank too much in the crown room or had the beginnings of dementia.

Jack is Back!

Clarice,

How many of those Montgomery kids got accepted to Ivy's under the new "adversity" rules?

rse

I have a law school friend who went to a summer tennis camp and learned that the boy she only knew as john was jfk jr only while watching him address the envelope of a letter he was posting to mrs onassis on scorpio.

She clearly went to tonier camps as a child.

Captain Hate

OTOH these kids--probably are not in that category and are just being passed thru so no one can make a (fake) claim of discrimination,

Like Stedman's disparate impact suits? Way to look out for "your people", chinless imbecile.

Narciso79

Oh the clueless da in central Florida, one standard deviation above aoc will not seek reelection

Captain Hate

Famous brushes, kind of: Dr Ruth was holding court at the same gate I was at in Philthadelphia's airport for a connecting flight. She seemed like a very happy person.

Tom R

Clemens was pulled for a pinch hitter having thrown 139 pitches. He had had no hits in 3 earlier plate appearances

So? Back in the 80s limiting pitch counts wasn't as big a deal as it is now. If you are 6 outs away from winning the World Series that you haven't won since 1918 and your Cy Young winning ace has a 3-2 lead and he tells you he is good to go and wants to stay in you let him stay in. Schiraldi was warm in the pen ready to go if Clemens got in trouble in the 8th. Either Clemens lied or McNamara lied and based on past behavior I will go with Clemens. He took himself out of the game at crunch time.

Tom R

Sounds like Steele is scared of the truth coming out.

HOF AtC

I am fat as hell and that bikini pic is not empowering or the like. Rather the opposite.

I mean, hey, if she is confident going out in public like that, okay, fine. But I'm not going to celebrate it.

The only "fat acceptance" I want is to not be insulted to my face about being fat. That's it. Don't be a dick to me about it. That's just manners.

I've said it before, I'm fat and I have none of the health issues that we're told are inevitable from being fat and you know what that means? NOT A DAMN THING. Nothing. It doesn't mean medical science is lying to us and diets are slavery or whatever. It means that, right now at least, I'm dodging the bullets. Doesn't mean the bullets aren't there.

Grrrrrrrrr. Why do people have to pretend like everything must be celebrated?

Being fat is unhealthy. It's not good. No, I don't believe in being shamed, but I sure as hell do not want to be celebrated either.

Except for The Rack but that's different. That has an existence of its own.

In short, bite me in the non happy fun way, Gillette.

Virpi Mikkonen, 37, cookbook author and plant-based food blogger at Vanelja, recently announced her decision to eat meat and other animal products again.
The Finnish entrepreneur said her decade of following a mostly vegan diet led to health concerns like a rash, period loss, and early menopause.
After quitting veganism, she says, "I feel energetic, motivated. I’m sleeping better, the hot flushes, and aching in my body have stopped."

I swear to God I am going to run for mayor of Indy, just so somebody will pay attention to the damn chuckholes in our streets!

Seriously, we have terrible chuckholes and not just in this neighborhood; they are everywhere, and some are HUGE. Do I ever see anyone repairing them? Nope.

That's why a guy was walking around the Speedway on Sunday with a sign that asked people to sign a petition to fix them.

All Hogsett does is run around the city getting his picture taken in black churches.

Somebody in one of those churches should ask him about the number of murders and the increase in gang violence. And chuckholes.

Narciso, does your dashboard look like this?

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=5JyZWpknIeM

If so, you will notice how easily the knobs come off.

The guy in the video is fixing the "mode" cable. Notice how the knob doesn't turn fully in either direction and springs back? If your "temp" cable malfunctioned it would be similar in action.

Relative to the ambient temperature is it a little warmer or is it actually hot, when the temp knob is in the coldest selection?

Chuckholes throw hubcaps a bit further, and a bit more accurately, than potholes.

fdcol63 🇺🇸,

HAHAHA! An astute cartoon. However, at least I'm not gloomy!

Threadkiller

Narciso, I have to run. I think we are having trouble communicating because of the specifics I am used to. When you say "air conditioning" i assume you are referring to the cool setting on the temp knob, but I can't be sure.

Here is what I am used to, the MODE knob is where we talk about specifically MAX AC, AC, VENT, HEAT, DEFROST

The TEMP knob is where we talk specifically about WARM and COLD.

When you say "air conditioning" my mind points me to the MODE knob.

Does this make sense?

clarice was apologizing for typos and nowadays she's a semi-pro writer.
You know who else has buckets of typos? Don Surber!

He's quick to acknowledge and thank anyone who brings a substantive error to his attention. But he resolutely ignores typos. It gives insight into being a pro in the business. He just dashes off his posts. He cares about the theme. He cares about crafting a memorable phrase. But common typos bring him no worry, no shame whatsoever.

Threadkiller

I should say that my mind points me to the MODE knob but I want to assume you are talking about the TEMP knob.

Tom R

From the American Greatness article:

His decades-long crime spree that crossed state and international boundaries should not have gone unnoticed by federal law enforcement officials. Comey’s FBI should have been alerted that something was up even before girls started coming forward, given that there was already an internal investigation by Michigan State in 2014 into accusations of assault, or when Nassar suddenly retired as the team doctor in September 2015 as more allegations began to surface.

Don't the sexual abuse crimes Nassar committed fall under the jurisdiction of the state they were committed in? Seems to me law enforcement authorities in Michigan should be the ones who should primarily be getting the blame here.
