So, the two teachers who are the most qualified to teacher honors English have their classed filled with eager under-achieveing students. The over-achieving honors students just ... lose?!

Your educational utopia doesn't really make any kind of sense in reality, It is impossible to work logistically.
Supply and demand always rules, if supply is short the price goes up until sufficiency is attained.

yes, that is definitely what any reader with good comprehension skills would surmise from my last two or three posts on this thread

:rolleyes:
Well if you think the inner city kids are getting the same quality of education as the "white" kids in the suburbs your daft. So do you just propose pumping more and more money into schools regardless of the result? Why not take that money and use it to allow school choice? What is wrong with a choice?

oh, don't be retarded.

the inner city schools do NOT receive the funding that wealthier suburban schools receive, and you KNOW IT.

and once again, if all the inner city school students choose wealthier suburban schools to attend, and are bused to the suburbs, WHERE IS THE MONEY COMING FROM to build all these new schools that will be necessary in those school districts???? Why not just put the money NOW into the inner city schools instead of having kids taking class in janitor closets and bathrooms???

You question where the money would come from but at the same time want more money for failed schools systems.

Beware of watermelons
you're spending the money - I want it spent equally
property taxes go to schools. people move to neighborhoods that have better schools and pay higher taxes for that service. if poor neighborhoods treat their public schools like they treat the rest of public property why should other neighborhoods chip in to fix their problem. people need to take the inactive to bette the things that they have not cry that things are unfair and they should be given new stuff. there is a suburb just outside of the minneapolis city limits that has one of if not the states best athletic programs. their football field would rival many small colleges. the property taxes there are insane but do you know what else they do? a shit ton of fund raising. that athletic club is funded by boosters, the parents, the community and alumni pay for it. why should that community be forced to fund another school?

they are known as the "cake eaters". they have been for decades and are referred to as such well into adulthood.
