This Country is going downhill fast! The main reason Lawyers and their frivolous lawsuits. EverybodyRead More sues for every little thing and everybody is so sensitive about every little thing. Thank the lawyers for all of this BS.

Even the DHHS, which started these programs, admits that they don't work. Yet political yahoosRead More continue to push them through. No wonder cities and states go bankrupt.

Chromebooks are a good option for 1:1 and other school computing initiatives, as they are easy toRead More manage and use. The fast boot-up time is especially important in a classroom environment, as students don't waste time waiting for their devices to finish starting up. But what about schools that use Windows applications? Or that access applications that require support for Java? This can be addressed with third-party solutions such as Ericom AccessNow, an HTML5 RDP solution that enables Chromebook users to connect to any RDP host, including Terminal Server and VDI virtual desktops, and run Windows applications or desktops in a browser tab. That means that you can open up an Internet Explorer session inside a Chrome browser tab, and then connect to the applications that require Java and run them on the Chromebook. It's also possible to run other Windows-based testing or educational applications. For more information about AccessNow for Chromebooks in Education, visit: http://www.ericom.com/Education-ChromebookRDPClient.asp?URL_ID=708 Please note that I work for Ericom

The real news is if she's going to prom and what her dress looks like...

MaverickMom: I'm not in favor of a politician designed educational system but I'm definitelyRead More terrified of every district making their own rules about what kids should learn. We need the smartest among us to come together and create a workable set of standards anf I have no problem with a national set of standards if they truly represent the diversity of the country. I don't want some backwards towns/states/regions rewriting their own history or adding in the Bible or leaving out evolution or teaching racism etc.

WMS826: The country is white-centric already. Teaching a course on African American culture andRead More history seeks to achieve balance, not tip the balance. Let go of your fear. This country is becoming more and more brown. Accept it.

I guess when you're liberal on one issue it's to be expected you would be liberal on all issues. IfRead More that's the case, don't try to pass yourself off as being impartial or omniscient. factchecker, give it a rest.

For a inch of snow on ground schools closed? I can see a delay opening, but after all the lostRead More school days so far they should of at least had a delay opening of a hour or so.
julie wilson March 17, 2014 at 04:19 pm
It started out as a delay, but then call it off. It wasn't that bad to call it off. Main roads wereRead More clear and side roads were not that bad. These kids will be making up some snow days.
Sharon H March 18, 2014 at 10:35 am
We are raising a nation of wimps. Maybe one or two of this winter's storms would qualify asRead More legitimate times to close schools. Otherwise, it was ridiculous. People in Canada must be laughing at us. At this rate, at the sign of a snowflake schools will be automatically closed.

Marie, why are you conditioned to think that someone that needs pay more taxes because they have aRead More larger house? Why do you think that is fair? Why do you think that if someone spends money keeping their house nice, they need to be penalized with higher taxes? Shouldn't someone should be allowed to keep their house nice? So according to you, it is fair if I buy a house and let the paint go and let the place degenerate and I can have my taxes lowered. you are brilliant.
John Santaella April 22, 2014 at 04:16 pm
I plead the 2nd tchk tchk it doesn't work that way. Ask your town assessor about that.
Marie Intili April 22, 2014 at 05:49 pm
I didnt say you have to pay more taxes if you have a bigger house! Or a nicer house...you areRead More taking my words out of context! A two family home that is zoned for two families should only have two families living in it! Not 10 families! Thats all I said...I said nothing about letting your paint go or getting penelized with a higher tax because of size.....only what its zoned for!

That is why most colleges award Merit Money based upon SAT scores.

If this is true my dog could probably be eligible if he went through the Brick school system.

Schools in general is nothing but fakes. Not even close to accurate. To many reasons to list. YouRead More have to many dishonest people involved in the outcome in changes that shouldn't be. Yes, schools play to make it look one way that is not even close to what it should be. They rig the outcome to make their school look good for certain students who they might have a connection with in some way. You can have students who rank higher in lower level classes that are not even close in comparison that has no business being 2 or 3 in a class.

Hey Joe-90% tax rate existed with a number of signifigant loopholes that resulted in a nominal taxRead More rate in the mid 40s for the highest earners...stop getting your talking points from MSNBC and think for yourself. and even if you took every dollar from the top 10% of earners in this nation, we would still have a deficit...spending is the issue, not revenue....do you get that fact or does your hatred for the wealthy cloud your ability to digest reality...
Joe R March 15, 2014 at 08:51 am
Hey SH, in the 1950s, the top marginal tax rate was 91% and the effective tax rate was about 51%Read More after the loopholes. Oh, so we don't have loopholes today??!? Ha, ha, ha. The current top marginal tax rate is 39.6% but that's before all the loopholes. The effective tax rate is even lower than 39.6%. JFK eliminated many of the loopholes and reduced the top marginal tax rate to 74%. That works for me.
SH Resident March 15, 2014 at 07:02 pm
Joe-I will agree to raise the marginal tax rate to 50%...what programs other than defense do youRead More propose to cut? Exactly none is probably your answer...cutting defense and raising taxes does not get us to a balanced budget...we need to cut spending...you socialists never seem to get that point...and moreover, how about EVERYONE has some skin in the game and has to pay some income tax.... you will never want to cut spending on social programs because then how will you bribe low information voters to win elections?

I completely misread Jen's post. So, for the record, I stand corrected and regret doing so.Read More Sheila, unfortunately, I don't have children, and am able to freely make vacation plans. As for our education system, I'm afraid it's appalling, but I pay my tax dollars in support, none the less.

Stop the constant testing! Let the teachers teach and maybe the kids will learn. Private school getsRead More it done in less time, get education back to what it was.
