Meaning parents on the whole, in the private school system, take the education of the children more seriously than that of those in the public system. And I do know when parents care and get involved with the kids' education then the kids do better.

I base this on the fact that when talking to numerous parents about private school we had a number of them tell us that it isn't worth it because it really isn't all that different than a decent public school. Now we have good public schools in my area but the private schools still out-perform even those good schools in all the basic metrics.
I thought this was a relevant and interesting interview. A lot of parents simply don't know better and they need educating too. I believe 1/3 the battle of a child success is attributed to the parents, 1/3 to the child, and 1/3 to their environment (teachers, schools, etc).

Not sure why I said that because I think he is behind in the poles. I was thinking of another race.

Re: Super Happy Unfun Thread!

I was watching the liberal TV show MSNBC today and their guy who picked 49 of 50 states in the presidential race said the Dem's have a storm coming. When asked how bad of a storm he said you mean what category maybe 4 or 5 hurricane. Then they showed his chart and it did not look to good for the Dem's.

Any thread started by our pessimistic friend from Seattle is an "Unfun" thread.

The same. I have a bunch of liberal friends I just don't talk politics with them. I actually don't talk politics very often other then here. We will take jabs at each other now and then but thats about it.

I am glad you asked. He is a Karate expert and presumably a ninja, and as such he has to be ready for action at all times.
