Greetings,

  I encourage children and teens to carry "flood  books" at all times. These are books to have in hand for whenever there is a "flood", or a time when there's nothing to do but wait. Times when "flood books" come in handy include: waiting at a doctor's office, waiting for a friend, waiting for a bus, and riding in the car. Now I can add waiting at the barber shop.

Opportunities for children. Giving opportunity by removing a crime wave from existance. Within the crime wave is illegal signals, Illegal frequencies, Illegal telepathy, illegal brain chips, Illegal nano technology, Illegal assailants and more. It is all illegal and against humanity. NOW remove it all from all time, placement , and energy, Thats an ORDER!

Yes, they don't know what questions to ask. The don't know anything about
follow up or follow through. They follow, blindly. They go along with
what everyone else says, and take no for an answer instead of finding out
why the answer is no.

It makes me angry. 2k is taken out in my property taxes to "educate" my
kids. They graduate HS with honors in criminal law, civil rights
violations and a rap sheet detailing every referral to the
principals/wardens office they've had since the day they hit kindergarten.
Of course they are graduating not knowing reading or math. They are too
busy, with their parents, defending themselves in the juvenile and adult
justice court systems and for stuff that teachers/parole officers,
principals/wardens, and cops, sheriffs/cops, sheriffs, deem criminal per
their opinion instead of what is written in the law books.

When schools are way too busy running jails, they produce burdens to
society.

Back to my $2,000 x 30+yrs : This money is wasted and as long as I own
property, even if I don't have children of my own in school, 100's of
thousands are spent supporting non academic endeavors. The state is
stealing my money and using it to send our own children straight to prison.

When my kid steps in college, I must shell out another $20k just to get
them up to speed and another $30k just to get a BBA. They won't get a job
that's worth a hill of beans to cover all that school debt 'cause their
rent too dang high.

School should become this device that I'm typing my uttermost complaints.
The education system and DOE are crocks of dung. They fail....EVERYONE!!!!.

Hi everyone, I really enjoyed the presentation. I also liked the tiered approach that was talked about with PBIS, RJ and then the bigger vision of trauma-informed care and practices.

I have a question: do you know where we can access the root-cause analysis that was mentioned? I tried to find it and I was unsuccessful. I would appreciate any help with this.

Thank you, Adriana

College students who don't graduate are 3x more likely to default on their student loans. College costs and debts are only part of the problem.

Yes. Let's remember to thank a teacher. There are many, many who do their best work, have their hearts in the right place, and get decent results.
