If black non-college goers who earned low-credentials were 20 percentage points less likely to be employed full-time at age 26 than similarly credentialed white non-college goers, does that mean we need to make sure all kids go to college? Does that mean we need to track kids from cradle to career to make for a better education?

Will choice in careers go away if we put ourselves into a situation where data is tracked and the government makes decisions to ensure that everyone has equal access to a good job?

According to Edifier: The gap is cut in half when both black and white non-college goers earned high-credentials. Similar results were found when looking at other indicators of having a career success such as if they had ever been unemployed or if their most current employer offered medical insurance.

I'm not against getting kids into college, but I'm against the belief that there needs to be public boarding schools to get rid of an achievement gap. I'm also against my child's cesarean birth following her to her first job as well.

We need to abolish the US department of education and let teachers teach again.

Let's let families decide what success means, and not big data.
Will your child's P-20 education file decide their future? How are these KGB-like files going to impact future freedoms and why we must question common core and the DOE.

Health care reform caused rural SCHOOLS to cut hours. Fewer people with paid health care and more people buying into national health care. #CEO wages in the Insurance sector skyrocket.

The Affordable Care Act has dramatically raised costs for public school districts and forced changes to insurance and services.

He is a libertarian in disguise. He is for freedom. He is for lower taxes. He is for a smaller federal government. #standwithrand

School time! I know many of us choose to wait to buy school clothes until the weather changes. This means a "nice" new outfit for the first day and another one for picture day... Well, sometimes you just need to stock up! When would that be? When your favorite brands go on sale.

Don't simplify the bill of rights and expect freedom. After the 8/6/15 GOP debate, we, as American parents have a new responsibility. Teach freedom.

I am comparing this to the other options. The fact is the school teachers care and administration is responsive. There are issues with communication coming at the last minute but that is a bit of the norm. The school teaches. The kids learn. They have extra activities that are part of the school day.

Good ambience and a great selection of food. We ordered chicken once and it was undercooked. Other than that all food has been excellent. However one cannot dismiss undercooked poultry. All food is tasty though!

Not religious they claim but the man won't "train" you unless you agree to a puja to his gurus, etc. I'd call thus false advertising.

This place doesn't even carry coffee - how can that be considering the name? To make matters worse they never will give you their Forty-Niner. This last time will be my last time there. I wrote about it as an open letter to cafe coffee day - it is sad to see how they bait and switch.

Great service. Clean. Coffee drinks are great and have a great selection of baked goods as well as their crepes, pizza, fries and more. Their home-made bread is great for take home. They have hand sanitizer ready for your use. The only thing that would make it better would be free wi-fi
