Common Core, What Is It Good For?

Commented May 1, 2012 at 02:19:51 in Education

“The common core is an initiative aimed to changed the way of teaching. I believe that implementing the common core on mass scale what result in a dummer society with lower educational standards. Challenging students is a better way to teach then handing diploma's to students on a silver platter, which is what the common core is proposing. If everyone has an easily earned diploma rather then a hard earned diploma nobody will want to hire them. This can easily effect the economy.”

Pineapple That Ate Global History

Commented May 1, 2012 at 01:56:01 in Education

“I am disappointed mostly because firstly, there is no strong reason to not have the subject global history taught in school. Further more, having a good knowledge of our past and current events makes us well rounded as individuals and has a society. For example, How would anyone who is ignorant of this history of segregation and slavery in the United States be able to explain or understand EQUAL OPPORTUNITY and why it is mandated and some organizations? It is unfair that some people, in their own intrest, believe that global history is not important, and the majority of people in future generations may have to pay the consequences.”

Home of the Irish Immigrant Girls in Lower Manhattan

Commented Mar 8, 2012 at 00:05:33 in New York

“It's amazing how the Irish women are slowly making a home in America. Its a great idea to give them a safe place to reside in. It will lessen their difficulties that they would have face if they were to begin a new life in a new place. The young Irish immigrants are fortunate to be welcomed in such a warm way into America.”

Race, Arrest and Incarceration in New York City

Commented Jan 23, 2012 at 22:31:02 in New York

“The main target of the NYC cops are minorities because it is instilled in their heads that all minorities are the culprits when in reality the culprit is the person who committed the crime. It's wrong for them to do this because they are not going by what the law says. They cannot just go up to anyone on the street whom they "think" is a criminal. Until there is proof, no one can be labeled as a criminal.”
Obama's Educational Report Card Grade Is F

Obama's Educational Report Card Grade Is F

Commented Jan 23, 2012 at 22:27:24 in Education

“At the beginning of his presidency,Obama advertised himself really well which makes him a great marketer rather than a leader. He reached his goal to be the president with the help of our votes but in return didn't do anything to improve the education system.”

What's Good for Mayor Bloomberg's Kids Is Good Enough for Ours

Commented Jan 23, 2012 at 22:23:57 in New York

“Bloomberg is a wise man but still selfish. Its not fair to public schools because we don't really have many of the opportunities that students from private institutions have. Bloomberg's kids goes to the higher end schools and are achieving things that we can only dream of which is not fair to us who actually would want to utilize those opportunities. If he makes class sizes bigger and fires many of our excelling teachers, it will totally demolish the academic environment. We need smaller teacher-student ratios in order to help students learn more effectively and efficiently. His plans are only going to decrease the amount of knowledge students gain.”

"You Don't Own Frederick Douglass"

Commented Jan 23, 2012 at 22:08:29 in New York

“Alan singer is a very wise man. He again leaves people speechless with his articles. One thing that caught my eyes in this article was when he said , "Be suspicious when White men tell the story about how they made the world better for Black people." I honestly think African and american choose their own path in life and settled down on their own and fought for their rights. Some white men changed some routines but cause of the black men a lot of things changed in history.”

Wall Street Was a Slave Market Before It Was a Financial Center

Commented Jan 23, 2012 at 21:58:59 in New York

“Wall Street didn't really change as much because it still maintains the lowest standards of demeanor and humanity as always. I'm also shocked that Wall street was built by African Americans and people are in total disgust when they see Blacks around that area. Its like they acknowledged a big impact in wall street and still their treated differently and that's very WRONG.”

Sixties Redux at Occupy Wall Street

Commented Oct 18, 2011 at 23:15:20 in New York

“"We are 99 percent!" That's the first thing I saw when I went to walls street and when me and my friend joined the marched with the crowds I felt like I was doing the accurate and there must be a change after all the things people has been doing on wall street. I also so tents and a variety of people who joined this protest and even the people who works in wall street came to Zuccotti Park to become a part of this group. The experience was phenomenal, like no other experience it was astonishing to watch these people stand up for our rights. Just because of this protest on Wall Street it's becoming international the government should be in charge of whats right and whats wrong and hopefully they make the accurate decision.”

New York State Blocks "Victory" Charter on Long Island

Commented Oct 5, 2011 at 22:15:54 in New York

“What Victory Education Partners is doing is wrong. The company is selling their image with an exaggerated icon, taking advantage of poor people and making the education system inefficient. However, “doing something wrong” is not a valid reason to legally shut down the company. We cannot just tell the company what they’re doing is unethical and shut them down, because the actions of the company are actually legal. Other companies, such as Forever 21, GAP, and H&M do unethical things as well, like manufacture products in foreign countries for cheap labor costs. This is wrong because their making profit by taking advantage of poor people. Even though these companies have unethical practices, we don’t try to shut them down. We leave the choice of doing business with these companies to customers. Similarly, there’s no need to close the Victory Education Partners Company down because we can use alternate methods to keep the company dormant. One method is to require the company to show all prospective customers their performance reports for all of their existing and preexisting schools. Another method is to require government approval on each Victory Education Partners project. These plans would initially decrease the business of Victory Education Partners, and give other better, cleaner companies the opportunity to create good schools for the youth. Ultimately, children attending charter schools will have better education and better opportunities.”

American Mengele

Commented Sep 19, 2011 at 20:04:28 in World

“I disagree with whatever Mengele did because it was unethical. Cutler should have never let the Guatemalan researchers perform harmful experiments because it affected so many people. The U.S government should be more careful of who they hire. I don't think U.S pharmaceutical companies should be allowed to experiment on foreign lands because that gives them opportunities to take advantage of poor foreign citizens.”

You Are Not Getting A Teaching Job Through The New York Times

Commented Sep 19, 2011 at 18:14:43 in Education

“I think the situation is unfair because they want students to get home schooling on their computers where they can learn but they're never told that there's a chance they might not get a job after they finish home schooling. It's sad because even though they want o follow their dreams, they end up with nothing.”
