We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Go to your childrens or grandchildren's schools and count the classrooms then count the teachers on staff. I did it and my child's middle school had 12 classroms and 18 teachers. That means during any period of class 1/3rd the teachers aren't working. Not only that but each class had one or two teachers aides. Does anyone remember when a teacher was able to teach the entire class without needing a "aide"?
