1. Requiring (!) Arabic classes of Mansfield TX students, since that is "the language of the future." STORY 2. Teachers from cash-strapped Chicago schools go to Vegas on the taxpayer's dime...and miss teacher-parent meetings for report cards to boot: MORE Wow...and we let morons like this "educate" our kids? So in Mansfield you have stunning ignorance...and in Chicago, you have thievery. Nice choice. My fellow believer Public School teachers, you have my prayers. Ya'll work in some tough joints. My fellow believer Public School Administrators, you have my prayers too--withstanding the temptation to beat the stupid out of folks would be too much for me.
