“Not necessarily. My 1st graders use that type of paper during their Daily 5 time if they make writing as a choice, they have writing notebooks. Also, her spelling would be acceptable for a 2nd grader. She has all her common words spelled correctly and the misspelled ones make phonetical sense. Get over yourself.”

“Well, isn't that peachy, that afraid of modern parents are you? Get isn't an common word? Get, pet, jet, met, vet, net

I suggest you get over it yourself face up to your parents and teach your students! Enabler....”

“Why do people always have to comment on looks... sheesh.”

Wilson Orshal on Jul 13, 2013 at 20:00:43

“Now that you mention it, I agree with you. In the back of my mind I was wondering the same question.
Unfortunately our society makes judgements on appearance. Ronald Reagan used to dye his hair because he did not want to appear old. McConnel is in his 70's and has no wrinkles. His face is puffy. Does he do botox?
Vanity in this society has run amuck thanks to things like reality tv.
It is a sad fact that many uninformed voters base their decision on the appearance of the candidate. Forget the character, personality or message of the person.”

CaWa on Jul 13, 2013 at 19:24:15

“Normally that would bother me too, but conservatives have proven they care more about looks when it comes to female candidates. That, sadly, might be what makes a few of them vote for her.”

“Most transgender people will say they knew from a very young age, and instead were pressured into identifying with the gender attached to their sex. It may seem young to most people, but it's not a phase or something that happens to a person, she was born knowing she was a girl, it's not her fault she got the wrong parts and she shouldn't be treated different or isolated because of it.”

“Actually, it is not an appropriate moniker at all. What would be appropriate, is addressing her by the gender she identifies with and who she feels she is. The school should be as interested in protecting this child, which would mean not isolated or setting the child up for bullying.”

bendygirl on Mar 9, 2013 at 12:02:55

“It was not intended to be nearly as offensive as it was taken - and certainly not nearly as offensive as the utter abuse I've received from other posters for saying what I said. I absolutely support her being whatever gender she feels she is - and it was never my intention to suggest otherwise; my participation the LGBT community where I live suggest to me that it's not an uncommon term (it is used by those around me). Of course I advocate every protection for this child, however, without the support of local school officials, I don't see how she could avoid being bullied - or worse, assaulted by older children in the toilets. I think until such time as this family has community support, and the school officials get some education around how to handle this better, that home schooling is the safer choice for her right now.”

“Why should parents have their children taken away? Is poor being a crime now? Because that is the #1 factor to low student achievement. So, are you suggesting that if parents are poor, that we should take children from their families? Children in bootcamps without loving families will somehow bridge the inequalities compared to children with loving families that have more money and more time with them? Makes a lot of sense. Not.”

“First of all that this program has only been in effect for a few years. I got out not too long after it started, and I will be graduating this fall. Most that started at the beginning will just now/soon graduating.

This entire "process" has been a nightmare. Constant months of delays, changing the program once vets are already in school, many vets were really hurt when they eliminated the "break pay" etc. However, the idea of cutting the program so fast calling it ineffective seems silly to me. Especially when they haven't seemed to make much of an effort to fix whats wrong with it... (I'm about to graduate, and the VA still can't pay my tuition in a timely manner).

There also needs to be more support for service members interested in going to college when exiting the military. When I left the Marines, we had a week of training on becoming civilians again. I sat through nearly 3 days straight of talk about how to go to job interviews, and build a resume, and had a half hour class on going to college. Many service members haven't been in school for years, especially when bouncing from deployment to deployment. Even those that do, it's a huge change going from taking 1-2 classes at night on base, or online, vs. going to school full time at a college, with other students years younger than you that still live with their parents and have curfews.”

“actually, many of the recipients of the post 9/11 paid into the original bill (MGIB-AD) and were converted to the post 9/11.

and actually the program had been in surplus prior to the post 9/11, because of everyone that had paid in and never used it.”
