“WOW! You must be one of those teachers that believe chaos is a normal state for a classroom. Well my condolences to your children.”

Samantha Grey on Dec 6, 2013 at 18:47:18

“Children do not learn when they are not allowed to make mistakes, or when they are not allowed to talk. So yes, my classroom is always a bit chaotic. That's the most organic way of learning - it mirrors real life. I have been an award winning teacher for years and I have several degrees and research to back up what I'm saying. My students are respectful, organized, collaborative, and just plain awesome.

You certainly have a right to your opinion, but your opinion does not take into account the reality of the situation.”

“Not in an English speaking class, if it were a Spanish class that would make sense.”

Samantha Grey on Dec 5, 2013 at 16:22:57

“That makes no sense whatsoever. Keeping subjects isolated is so unrealistic - we don't encounter science, math, language arts, or music in isolated events in the real world. First of all, a post modern education should be interdisciplinary. So you are wrong on that count.

2nd of all, teachers meet kids where they are developmentally. We don't make the kids jump to where we want them to be and start there.”

“This is EXACTLY what happens with wealth redistribution. Is this the change you all voted for?”

srchr on Dec 4, 2013 at 16:11:25

“There is a problem with the income disparity in this country. It wasn't always this way. Let's see... What has changed over the past 30 years that could contribute tô this? Most of the money going to a very small group of people, at the expense of the middle and lower class. You don't have a problem with that?”

admrob on Dec 4, 2013 at 16:08:36

“There's been plenty of wealth distribution since the 1980s. Unfortunately it has all been from the bottom/middle to the top.”

“I'm sorry, I must have missed all the stories about the economy doing exactly the opposite before Obama was in office. Can you help me out with a link for when this was not the norm?”

“Where her uterus went? You're thinking about women who eat to obesity in pregnancy.”

Carroll Stclair on Dec 3, 2013 at 17:41:06

“No. Dearheart. The uterus expands during EVERY pregnancy up over the umbilicus (aka your bellybutton) no matter how much you eat or don't eat. In the average pregnancy the tip of the uterus, also called the Fundus is just under the breast bone (also known as your sternum) at 40 weeks. Do you know where the breast bone is? It's just to the right of your heart and right in between your, well, breasts.

This has nothing to do with what you eat or don't eat. The uterus is what the baby grows in. Women who overeat during pregnancy don't put on weight in their uterus, they will add extra fatty tissue everywhere around it.....midsection, face, arms, legs, etc. but not in the uterus itself.

This is pathophys 101. You must not have a medical background. Or even a layperson's understanding of what happens during pregnancy. Please try to do a little bit of research before you weigh in (pun intended).”

PCCNYC on Dec 3, 2013 at 17:04:23

“You obviously don't understand how pregnancy works. The uterus always has to shrink back to normal; it's got nothing to do with fat.”

“What I believe is this, if you want to change your life you must fight for it. As far as women's rights, they too must fight for their freedom. We are making the same mistakes as the English did, colonialism, they are hated world wide. No one human is less than another but to achieve more, more must be done by themselves. I believe what I am writing about is self determination. The cost of help from a benefactor, always exceeds the reward. IT IS THEIR COUNTRY, CULTURE!”

“My prayers for the kid and I believe that says it all. I coached sports for 8 years, watching young people striving for victory, learning how to accept defeat and championships with class. I also coached football for two years and I watched as these kids would face different teams, I noticed the size difference immediately, some of those were huge playing the opposing position of a kid who was half his size. I mentioned it to the other coaches and they said it would make them tough, WOW! After two seasons I told my Son that he was done with football, he asked "Why", I told him that I couldn't live with myself if something happened to you or one of the other boys. One last thing; how in the world are they letting that 400# kid play? The other kids are 1/3 his weight!”

“This has always been the weakness of the leftists, they are classless undisciplined children. The right are polar opposites, they are not able to lead because they do not have the leadership skills to understand the motivations of the left. What comes from all of this, a divided country. A divided country is a doomed country. Democracy is only successful when it's citizens are independent in their beliefs, not grouped into opposing parties. This Republic was created on those ideals.”

“In Germany at the age of 16 children are pushed to discover their future employment options. Instead of repetitive education, they try different employ, be it an law office or manufacturing, this way they don't t waste a college education and it's costs. Students actually know what will be needed in the economy of their future. Whereas in the US you are labeled a loser, even though they earn more as a plumber.”

“First of all catholics are not Christians, they like all other so-called Christian religious groups that have taken what Jesus wrote and created their own religion to strengthen their groups. In true Christianity all people are welcomed, no matter their religion, it was developed for inclusion not exclusion. I like it because it teaches forgiveness because I am perfectly imperfect.”

“Very few people alive today really understand what jesus is said to have talked about. He never preached about salvation happening after death.
