Re: New oleander/schools


Sorry - showing my age there. Tells you how often I do fast food.
Dumbing down is right and it's TOTALLY wrong. We're shortchanging an
entire generation. This stuff makes me nuts. Bad soapbox for me to get
on. The Kemp ISD should consider itself very fortunate I have no kids in
school. Kaufman schools are no better. Bridgett can't get her 8 year old
daughter's teacher to answer phone calls or e-mails. She sends notes w/
her daughter to school - no response. Completely irresponsible. It took
around 400 years for Rome to fall from its pinnacle. Won't take us that
long at this rate.
