I wonder if they are going to ever do anything about the abusive amount of homework that teachers are (still!) loading up on kids.

I personally know at least 2 families who have seriously discussed moving out of town or going with home schooling.

We are sick of having 3 hour homework nights that destroy family harmony and leave kids so burned out they won't even consider college.

The ridiculous home work and the Saturday sessions for kids who have better things to do then home work are a total ruse. The union teachers just cram the home ork down are throats in order to find reasons to fail some kids why there own are treated with favoritism. All this would stop if it wasn't for the incompetant unions.

MERRYGOROUNDS FOREVER! VIVA!

Linda and Mary should redo their speech from last week's schoolboard meeting to let the city council know how concerned citizens should be about ptown schools and the Superintendant who is taking them over a cliff.......

It looks like AntiUnion is also AntiGrammar and AntiSpelling. Clearly, (s)he is AntiHomework. I wonder if (s)he is AntiDiploma and AntiIntellect as well. AntiCollege? AntiResponsibility? If AntiUnion is so AntiEducation, perhaps they should consider homeschooling. On second thought, I think the whole AntiSpelling and AntiGrammar matter may present itself as a problem.
