    I always like to look on the optimistic side of life, but I am realistic enough to know that life is a complex matter.

    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.

    US has the largest population of dogs. Surprisingly, France is second.

    A looooong time back (and under my old user name, I think) I started a thread on that very subject.
    Can't help but always wonder how different it would, most likely, be if Walt woulda' lived another 20-30 years...

    Re: Thoughts of Randomness VI

    I was called into the Principal's office for calling the District. Well, just like I thought, she soo doesn't want me to call the District. Anyways, so now she's gonna take away the the extra words lists the teacher is giving because its not part of the District's policy, even though the teacher was following the District's policy and teaching it in an accumulative approach. My concern was the two years PRIOR and the fact that our FCAT test was now suddenly going to count spelling when we were told the past two years spelling wasn't taught. Apparently they misspoke and should've said we teach spelling differently now. Even so, thats great, but what's the harm in giving some extra words. So now the Principal is taking action and having what I thought was a better effort eliminated immediately. Looks like I didn't accomplish anything and actually went backwards.

    I mean really.

    I forgot to mention I utterly despise politicians and/or bureaucrats and their contrived way of trying to convince you the sky isn't blue its purple and purples is a better color.

    Re: Thoughts of Randomness VI

    Sorry been there. Organize your thoughts for a few days. Write a non emotional letter back to the principal outlining your concerns and the flip flopping of the curriculum and lack of consistency is not helping students mastering spelling and likely this approach will come to light in the overall test scores of the student body.

    Then carbon copy that letter to who ever you spoke to at district along with the District Superintendent or who ever the grand poobah is at district. Wait for reaction. If there isn't one or it us unsatisfactory send the letter onto the Board of Education, send it to all of them individually. You are always best to have a paper trail or they can take verbal liberties with recapping you.

    For me I became so frustrated I ran for school board cause I had had enough of stupid.

    And Hugo Chavez dead. Amen.

    Sometimes the bad die young. 58 and none too soon. I smile as I think of the red hot poker he should be receiving about now.

    That's what I've been doing a series of emails end of last week, then I contacted the District, and then I followed up our meeting today with an email asking the extra efforts teachers provide not be banned and then recommunicated my objections to the AP after school so they know I take exception to that.

    If they ban the teachers as a result of my email and I will know in the next two weeks, then I will forward my previous emails, in addition to writing a new one to the Grand Poobah, , as you suggested. In addition, I took my dad with me to the meeting today since his mom was tied up on a project, so their could be no misunderstanding.

    I would run for the school board but I would pull my hairs out because I hate politics.
