5:55, Your gossip is about like Randy's reporting. Neither of you will be at the board meeting yet reporting your opinion

No wonder these kids are lacking any real education. Well, vast majority are lacking, but the few that have intelligent parents are still seeing their children study and learn. 170 days where is the schedule of 180 days when we went to school and if you failed a class or grade you had to repeat it. Not only that the next time you failed you had to repeat it again and again. Now fail one year and they get passed through high school to graduation even though they cannot add, subtract, multiply, divide, write a coherent sentence or point out location of our own 50 states or territory's. Seems the teachers are also lacking what ours had back in 50-60's if they need all those personal development days. Glad I am old and learned from my parents to study and save for the future.
