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.
Dr. Leonard Sax, a family physician and psychologist, writes about the hard-wired differences between boys and girls, and about the refusal of educators to take them into account. From an interview with Dr. Sax:
Boys today are increasingly alienated from school. Recent investigations have shown a dramatic drop over the past twenty years in boys' academic performance in American schools. According to the United States Department of Education, the average eleventh-grade American boy now writes at the same level as the average eighth-grade girl. Similar gender gaps have been documented in the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada. And the percentage of boys going on to college, and graduating from college, is falling. The U.S. Department of Education now projects that in the year 2011, there will be 140 women graduating from college for every 100 men — very nearly a 60/40 female-to-male ratio.
The future may already have arrived. Several major U.S. colleges and universities, such as New York University and the University of North Carolina, already report that their student body is more than 60 percent female.
Ohh their taking it into account alright--don't you worry your purty little head about that. I think by now most of you are aware of the the fact that the ACLU/Georgia has been very active in getting "little projects" turned into big nationwide "requirements" in term so f social justice. Well here we are folks: public schools are be mandated to have seperate classrooms for boys/girls. Though that is being tried in one or two other states. The deep south is the first place that is doing it without community input.
Now, my intuition tells me that that is for a very good reason. They can guarantee that the much hated non-Jewish white man will be destroyed (left behind) very early in the game! He will be instructed differently, his classrooms will have to fight for every nickel, etc.etc.
I used to believe in seperate sex classrooms. Still do for private schools. However, DO NOT EVER TRUST THOSE WHO RUN YOUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS! They always have a "social issue" they are trying to resolve and the enemy is always the white male. These folks just can't seem to destroy their own gene pool fast enough!
