Yes...school-girl uniforms are awesome

Officer...these cuffs seem a bit tight.


Seriously, I will probably ruffle some feathers with this statement, but it's mainly the teacher's union (NEA) fault that schools are such a mess. A good friend of mine, who lives in Tennessee, told me that the teachers in Tennessee have dropped out of the NEA and formed their own union.
He said that the NEA's lobby in Washington spends all of its resources lobbying for things completely unrelated to education.
The only kids that I encountered at college that were less equipped than me were the kids who went to the rural, Christian "academies" that sprung up after desegregation. Most of those private schools were not accredited, therefore their first year was spent in remedial classes.
