    A good rant is emotionally healthy. It prevents a blow up of some variety. Crying is also good, but I can't do that as easily.

    True, wall to wall Whitney, the Powell boys and politics. Elections should be 3-4 months prior ONLY. IMO.

    I wish I was asleep and they were up making breakfast. Light brekkie this AM though, cause hubby owes me lunch or supper at the restaurant of my choice. His plan for Valens and doing all of his checkbooks in 2.5 days.

    Napping is a great use of time on a Sunday afternoon, especially when it is this cold.

    Re: The RT Thread Part V

    DD has a book report due on 28 Feb. Our afternoon will be spent doing that, with me cleaning house. I didn't do it yesterday cause I took her shopping. We bought a cute dress, but this years dresses are so short, that she will have to wear leggings or get a coordinating skirt. The sales lady at the high end store said, "oh, it's perfect" all I could think was DO NOT bend. Yep, leggings.

    Got a free stuffed toy at Aeropostale, only bought a couple of shirts, but still got the free reward.

    Claire's is the worst for me, I really do not need to look at every pair of earrings, every necklace, every 80's style accessory, etc. But she spent an hour in there and bought-one pair of earrings. Oy,

    I do love the new JCP, the bags were $25.00 and so cute, but I didn't buy one-forgot after all those hours in there.

    But Bath and Body has a lovely Coconut scented line right now. OH YES>

    Exactly. The University failed the students. If the prerequisite courses are failing to bring the students to the level needed to enter your course that is not the students fault it is the Universities. Now why the University continues to allow it is another issue. Many want the 4 year degree to take 5 years, it is a WinWin financially for the University.

    This unfortunate trend isn't just at my university. In general 40 percent of freshmen do not have the reading and writing skills to handle college level material. And that is around the country- not just mine. One reason you are seeing more statements for college and career readiness standards for high schools. Unfortunately, around here, high school teachers don't think beyond the state test which doesn't prepare students for college. Add the fact that students have changed- they expect A's for being there, expect their parents to come to their rescue, aren't held accountable for their own learning- and you have big problem.
    I agree some are below. Ours is at 89%. Once again, a pattern. Not the students it is the educational system. There is a reason why the US is 39th worldwide. Little kids and college students can't change the system nor should they be expected to.


    Things have improved a lot at our university in the past six years. We dont have the reputation you state in your post. The students who do poorly can't get into our program. There are just several classes we call "weed out" courses. However, the one the adjunct is teaching is suppose to weed them out. It didn't. I will have two students who will be counseled out of the major by the end of the semester. (State requires a certain GPA- got to have it).
    All schools have weed out courses. But if you look at your post and posts of the last several years most are below expectation levels. As you graded all the papers they didn't get any better. For that many students to fall on their face they'd have to weed out the vast majority. Education boggles my brain, there is a reason why the United States has fallen so far behind so many developed countries. I understand tenure, I also think by what you describe above, there are too many that should not be allowed to teach. How do you get they get to keep their job when the reading level is so horrific.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    I would LOVE a chance to prove that theory or disprove it.
