  3. Junk like this prevails while the more real and serious problems get worse.

    This study points out the divergences but finds no solutions as all prior predisposed racial theories failed the measuring test.
    Schools are all equally well equipped so there is no disparity in the amount of money being spent.
    Black students having black teachers actually did worse on the scores while the opposite had always been presumed to be a factor.
    They are only left to one limp hypothesis.
     
  4. She disputed the characterization that it was a “requirement” for kindergarteners to learn the song, saying all students were given permission slips for their parents to sign before they were allowed to take part.

    “As a parent, you would have the right to say I don’t want my child participating in this,” Durham said.


    She said she didn’t know whether the permission slips detailed what the activity would involve, and said she hadn’t heard whether any parents disagreed with the song. Of the school’s 194 kindergarteners, only 25 will be participating in the program — a number Durham said is typical for an evening school activity, and not necessarily reflective of parents’ feelings on the subject matter.

  5. Really ! Really?....are you really trying to find some fragile excuse to justify this....really?
     
  6. When I was in elementary school we sang this song every time a guest came to our school:

    Thank you very much
    Thank you very much
    That's the nicest thing that anyone's ever done for us
    You rate the best by far
    At Yeager you're a star
    We feel just like a brand new day's begun for us
    And if we had confetti we would throw it
    Or shake your hand and smile so you would know
    We'd like for you to stay with us and never, ever go
    Thank you very, very, very much!



    It really wasn't the nicest thing that anyone had ever done for us, and we didn't really want them to stay with us and never, ever go. It was just a song.
     
  7. And you offer that as some kind of relevance???
    Good God you folks have absolutely lost your marbles.

  8. The only things about that that could be even possibly taken as controversial is Who's going to answer our every call.
     
  9. Did you pay royalties to the songwriters from Scrooge???
     
  10. So are y'all offended by elementary school songs about past presidents or just the one currently in office?
     
  11. I don't know how this comment will play with the educators on the board, but frankly a majority of mandatory schooling is indoctrination. Not much that you are taught that isn't taken on some amount of faith based on the authority of your teacher. It's a Grand Old Flag is every bit as doctrinaire as this Obama song. People get offended when the indoctrinated lesson doesn't jive with the parents' ideology ...

    Which is why the whole "teach the controversy" movement is such a farce ...
     
  12. The blinding madness prevails.......

    BTW
    here is the rest of the chant.

    [font="Arial][size="4"]Famous Author, Dreams of my Father
    He's our man, Yes we can!
    Every Call, Basketball
    Outside the box. Chicago White Sox
    Resident President[/size][/font]

    [font="Arial][size="4"]Who wants to go to college at Yale?
    Malia & Sasha will go to college at Yale
    Who'll make sure they won't fail?
    Barack & Michelle know they won't fail[/size][/font]

    [font="Arial][size="4"]They won't fail, they're going to Yale
    Famous Author, Dream of my Father
    He's our man, Yes we can!
    Every Call, Basketball
    Outside the box, Chicago White Sox
    Resident, President[/size][/font]

    ==================

    A promise to get them into a ivy league college, invoking their names as a promissory chant that they "won't fail" ??????
    and even using their election campaign slogan.

    Nothing unusual here. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Just the blind useful idiots protecting their messiah at any personal cost to their personal integrity.
    (already long gone on this board anyway)
     
  13. You didn't answer the question...
     

  14. No...just presenting the facts. Something you seem to be allergic to. It was not required, and judging by the numbers not too many are signing on.
     
  15. They may have written an ode to Obama, but at least they didn't write ...




    A cathode!!!

    ROCK ME!!!
     

  16. that's because he's not Catholic......
     
  17. Hey, the White Sox just signed Fukudome...
     

  18. great....now we're signing Cub rejects......
     
  19. Could be worse...at least your not the Cubs...
