  • These people are all from population centers. We can’t just go and dispense justice wild west style. And that’s a real shame. So the next best thing is for grid down. Then the population centers would become very difficult to survive. We could be rid of a lot of the left that way. Let them destroy each other!

  • Differentiation in US public schools is very challenging because most classrooms only have 1 teacher with limited teacher aides, and up to 30 students in one classroom. We have so many demands it is extremely frustrating.

  • I pay for 3 month but the next day my son try to login it shows he’s not a member,I try to call there is no answer,they just Stoll my money
    It’s shame.
    Any way my son he’s smart, I just want him to try it,I try to help I don’t know how

  • Well based on numerous testing that we’ve done here in Silicon Valley that statement regarding everyone being equal is manifestly untrue.

  • It all boils down to culture. Many minorities raise their kids in single parent homes and the kids don’t have any good role models. Sad but true

  • I am surprised that people are so negative. You can’t cheat on these tests but you can prepare! Why would you NOT help your child be as successful as possible. A human brain is NEUROPLASTIC, look it up. These tests are, as most tests, culturally biased, and many kids with the potential to understand and be successful aren’t given the opportunity to learn how to learn because their parents do not have exposure to this information. The brain can be taught almost anything if there is a proper motivation, especially if there is no damage to the physical organ itself. As a child gets older, the motivation becomes more difficult so being with and spending one on one time with a parent is an easy, free motivation.
    Our education system is not designed for “everyone” it’s not designed for most kids in today’s society bc our children are being born with learning differences more now than ever. I believe that we, as parents, have to step it up. We have to be ACTIVE, to an exhausting degree, compared to our past generations. In addition this is only one part of the puzzle…. IQ is not indicative to HAPPINESS, Emotional Intelligence is far more important. Considering that the labor force out in America today has a huge gap in males of working age and ability ages 18-52, I feel a huge sense of responsibility bc our kids aren’t getting what they need to be successful.

  • Well said! Yes, we are all created equal, but equal for what? Equal for personal dignity & individual legal rights, not necessarily capabilities & intelligence, which have been repeatedly proved by facts. Just like say Einstein has a very high IQ, but if he commits crime, he will receive the same punishment by law like any other person with a lower IQ. IQ issue is like a taboo, especially when it is related to races, no one wants to bring it up and we only pretend everyone is created equal for everything. Beating around the bush will never get you a real solution.

  • If you have four buckets of paint,


    You have a diverse selection of paint.

    If you pour all the paint into one bucket and stir vigorously you get homogeneity.

    Segregation preserves diversity
    Integration destroys it.

  • It all boils down to parents who would rather pursue pleasure and immediate gratification. They are frequently are on the lowest income to lowest middle income bracket. The children are usually preciously sexually active and both children and parent can’t seem to plan for the future, because they can’t see themselves in it. Frequently the children only received discipline that consists of ” don’t bother me.” But they know their”rights” with out any consideration of their responsibility. They expect that the school has magic power to educate their brats without any support from the home, including a magic non spanking discipline technique.
    As far as the policy, it is typical of the socialist mind set. To equalize outcomes, tear down the top.
    And all school systems try to put as many kids as possible on free or reduced lunch, because federal grants are associated with that number. So the schools pressure parents who don’t need it to apply.

  • I’ll tell you what’s happening. This Country is very very low as far as intellectuals. So in time you may create a gap of a generation or more than one of almost no intellectuals born. By that time we’ll never be able to rebuild the amount there were when I was born. They’ll be scarce, and almost already are.

  • Cheating on a test potentially places a child into a program in which he or she will likely experience difficulty. From the perspective of a school for gifted, the result of this inappropriate placement is a loss of self-esteem, the acquisition of a negative self-concept, and parents who may have unrealistic expectations of their children. All of this adds up to a miserable school career. To want to profit from this is disturbing. If you really want to prepare your child for a properly administered assessment, practice a good night’s sleep, a healthy breakfast, and minimize the discussion of what is at stake.

  • I think I was asking you about college scholarships in a previous live feed and you said that they don’t exist any longer. That REALLY surprises me. Do you know why they eliminated them?������������������������������������������
