“Has anyone bothered to remember that West Virginia is, and has been since 1863, part of the North? It is, in fact, the ONLY state that exists because it LEFT the Confederacy (i.e. - The South).”

QuiGon on Mar 13, 2014 at 11:36:22

“To be fair, "south" nowadays means "Southern State", not necessarily "part of the Confederacy." More geographic than historic.”

“Oh, I'm a dyed-in-the-Blue-wool Democrat, but this is incorrect. Unless your state has a referendum/initiative/proposition system by which voters directly vote on laws, we're a Representative Democracy, whereby we elect chosen representatives to represent our interests on the state and Federal levels, and they craft laws.”

“Then, she wasn't "Transgendered" by birth; she was "intersexed."”

erickpk on Feb 5, 2014 at 21:02:04

“I have no idea what she was; I don't care. My point was only that since science is now challenging some basic assumptions about what is and what is not male, we can't continue to work off old information. It's complicated.

Something made her transgender. Science can't answer that question yet, but since it is an open question, then nobody can claim with certainty she was biologically this or that... we don't know yet.

Was she "male" according to her chromosomes? I'm not arguing she wasn't. I'm arguing she was "also".”

“Oh, look - you trotted out Cato. At least we know you get your information from an unreliable source.”

David Berk on Nov 18, 2013 at 21:25:55

“"Oh, look - you trotted out Cato. At least we know you get your information from an unreliable source."

I tend to shy away from ad hominem attacks like this one. I also try not to make assumptions or generalizations about people prior to asking questions first.

I like to read a variety of sources of information, including information from sources I generally disagree with. The Cato institute is one of those sources. It just so happened that in this case, I felt they were successful in proving Arne Duncan's claims of success while in charge of Chicago Public Schools false based upon what he seems to view as the primary measure of success - test scores.”

“I would love a set of Common Core Standards if, instead of simply moving people along when they can't absorb the material, they get held back until they do. Not everyone learns at the same pace, and if some kids move faster, let them move faster; if other kids move more slowly, let them move slowly. Regardless of the PACE at which they learn, the standards of what knowledge they should glean should never be lowered to teach to the lowest common denominator.”

“Nice in theory. Exactly how long do you intend to hold some people before finding an alternative. Will the young kids that are in class with very behind middle schoolers be safe? This is nearly impossible unless you are dealing with a population that has little intellectual diversity, which is rare.”

“"I would love a set of Common Core Standards if, instead of simply moving people along when they can't absorb the material, they get held back until they do."

The predominance the most recent peer reviewed research on retention doesn't seem to indicate that retention necessarily benefits students, particularly if students are retained for more than one school year.

Do you have additional research or evidence that supports the approach you are suggesting?”

“To have such a program means you are willing to tolerate a higher drop out rate and a higher rate of minorities being held back.”

“And that's landed us with a virtually worthless generation of entitled crybabies who believe if they just throw a tantrum and say they don't feel "valuable," they can get whatever they want. I'm sorry, but if you want to raise your child to believe that everyone is going to treat them with (pun intended) kid gloves, that's your choice; don't expect me to cut them any slack when they're incapable of behaving like an adult.”

Iridescent Leuko on Oct 20, 2013 at 21:49:23

“Actually, there is very little evidence to support your claims that acknowledging someone creates some sort of entitlement.  Spoiling someone, perhaps, but acknowledging.. no.  Actually, there is opposite proof that being harsh with children creates literal monsters who kill other people and rape other people, etc.  I think that there is middle ground.  I don't think that mocking someone in pain is fair middle ground.”
