We're turning into a theocracy quicker and quicker... Disgusting.

You will be fine Jon, the State will still allow the butchering of children, even though ChristiansRead More oppose Murder. Are you happy now?

I have 5 kids and with all of their homework, dinner, activities, showers, etc, we find it hard toRead More fit it all in. They have tons of homework and then it's hard to fall asleep immediately afterwards. I definitely think these kids shouldn't be starting school at 7:15 a.m.
Brian Howell June 11, 2014 at 10:52 pm
Research upon research backs this doctor up. Teens' body clock naturally move later (staying upRead More later and getting up later.) 7:15 start times are foolish and work AGAINST good learning. Elementary school starts at 9:15! It should be the opposite. Little kids pop out of bed bright and early. Teens? Not so much. That's biology.
Wendy June 15, 2014 at 10:40 am
I agree with the Doctor. Too many kids have extra curricular activities on top of doing homework,Read More eating, showering etc. High school start time is a bit too early for these kids.

We have to make people aware that our State is run by public employee Unions and we need court casesRead More like today which ruled that the California Teacher Tenure rules are unconstitutional so that we can change laws and vote people out of office who do not represent the interests of the public who pay the taxes.

Something that is interesting to note is that high school grads are going to four year universitiesRead More and studying subject that isn't marketable. While on the other hand you have people getting vocational training at vocational schools that essentially guarantees them a job out of school that will make them 'x' amount of money. So it isn't that college degrees are worthless, some are. It is also said that sometimes trade school is the right choice!

Rank seems lower because of not enough AP courses or just not enough kids taking them. Wonder whyRead More that is? Article could also say 62 other schools did better and we lost to St. Charles.
Lou B. April 24, 2014 at 04:31 pm
St. Charles has a much tougher demographic and both St. Charles high schools ranked higher thanRead More Geneva in this analysis.

I couldn't help but to do some comparison between Stevenson and DHS as a resident in Deerfield,Read More since district has put up the news on the website. Operational spending per student is $16,839 in Stevenson and $20,821 in DHS. STEM ranking, #37 for Stevenson and #145 for DHS. I have been very disappointed in science teaching in DHS. Now I believe that there is some truth in the rankings.

I don't think magnet schools should be included. All the other schools have to take all students inRead More their district, magnet schools can pick and choose best students.

How does this system also guard against access by ANY threatening person, such as mass murderers?

That took a bit of work. I wish the author of the article had taken just a moment to describe theRead More type of construction the boys used. Also, I think their subject deserves a mention: it's the Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building, in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
Marla Olson February 27, 2014 at 03:31 pm
I would also like to know what these skyscrapers were made out of.
Jeff Golden February 27, 2014 at 03:43 pm
Agree - curious as to what type of materials were used.

Bob, I think the social-emotional growth of full-day is not being considered in your post. One ofRead More the best things of the all-day K is the being a fish in pond of your own peers. Th social-emotional growth was incredible for my kids -- despite what TESTING shows by 3rd grade.
Bob McQuillan March 4, 2014 at 06:31 pm
Social and emotional growth can also occur at daycare, which isn't an expense beared by theRead More taxpayers. A school's main purpose should be to educate a child. Some children are not ready for full day education at 5 years old. Keep in mind on this issue, in my opinion it isn't about spending money. It is about spending money where it will do the most good and that would be when the child is ready to learn.
Bob McQuillan March 4, 2014 at 06:34 pm
For some reason my response about the teachers benefit of their children attending the GenevaRead More schools was deleted. I stand corrected that the policy changed. It just changed last August, after the administration was questioned about the policy. Funny that a Geneva Non-Parent would know that the policy changed. Unless of course the change affected them.
Mike January 23, 2014 at 10:09 pm
Well, be prepared to take a few more days off next week too, Momx4...or buy some warm boots andRead More mittens. :)
Kristine Snider January 23, 2014 at 10:13 pm
Try face masks and thermal underwear. ;)
Mike January 23, 2014 at 10:20 pm
^ true - there are some reamrkable innovations out there to deal with cold weather! (But parentsRead More that use the word "negligent" force the administration into doing silly things sometimes)
