My niece's attitude is, "The teacher just wants us to finish our homework. She doesn't care if it's right or wrong."

Sickens me and makes me sad and disgusted!
Unacceptable.

That attitude makes education a moot point, and is the perfect argument for home or private schooling.

When I saw two words misspelled on one of my great niece's science projects, I asked her mom why she didn't correct them and she didn't seem concerned about it. That pissed me off, too!

I was helping her for a while, but, she wasn't into it for long.

In addition to my complaints, and I've talked with the principal a couple of times, the children have to look up the words themselves for definitions now. The teacher used to give them to the children to copy and the children had to write sentences.

My niece wanted to learn it because her teacher writes homework assignments in cursive. I found her some stencils.
A signature isnt really cursive. My signature is just the first letter of my name with some squigglys after it

Furthermore, if you actually do write out your name in cursive as a signature, you are an easy target for identity theft. Squiggly signatures are the hardest to copy.

Young was already under review for unrelated performance issues.
someone let a custodian fuck up a sign on purpose at an entrance hardly used by staff, take a pic, share it on FB and make sure a Paterson Board of Education member see it appear on his FB and news media pick it up and then it's more easy to demote a principal after unrelated performance issues allegations.

Re: Principal Reassigned After School Sign is Misspelled

U.S public systems are no different than what they were 50 years ago. What changed was integration, cultural unbalances, and sub culture influences.

Lets face it, in today's society, it isn't "cool" to be smart. Most of the horrid examples of learning in America are ones that are in densely populated urban areas.

A kid in these areas that displays an interest in learning, becomes a target to bullying. Go to any rural school system, they have high grad turn outs. But in more recent years, with social media influences, even they are suffering the stigma.

I'm sure many old farts left on these forums can attest to the ways things were, when being smart got you more popularity points.

Half these kids don't wear a shirt and tie to parties either. God knows what they look like in church on Sunday morning.

This process is what motivates what I mentioned in my previous post on this thread. We do what is "cool". Those who avoid it are too often ignored. They may form clans of the "odd ones out" but nevertheless in the grand scheme of things they're outcasts who choose to do something better are forgotten as a whole leaving very few "geniuses" who go against the grain of normal development, behind.
