My late wife taught in a predominately minority school where nothing which you experienced occurred. In very few schools does that occur but you are guaranteed to hear about it when it does. In some communities the school is an island of refuge from the violence and misery the kids normally live under. The students are in far greater danger going to and from school than when in it.

How about a split and stuffed infinitive, what is what any appetizing infinitive wants to really and truly, without any silly non-fat or low-carbohydrate nonsense, be?

I went to 6 different schools in two different states. My husband went to 14 different schools in 2 different states. It’s pretty much the same everywhere. Just because teachers don’t know about it doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen. I loved learning but hated school. Most of the teens in our church want to be home schooled. They have asked me to homeschool them but legally I cannot.

The good schools are the ones that are rare not the other way around.

Also, my husband is a youth minister and he spends a good deal of time in the schools. They are out of control.

Your experience is atypical. Sounds like your husband didn’t even make it through a year at the same school. Were you military families?

Certainly the situation you describe is not typical of smaller schools or private schools. Nor does it fit any of the suburban schools around my area.

You seem to believe there is practically open warfare in almost all schools. In actuality the danger in schools is completely in proportion to the number of welfare families within them.

Schools being used to do more than they were intended to do (educate kids) is the main reason there are failures. Now they are expected to be surrogate parents for the welfare class.

I also suspect you expect different things from schools which they cannot provide.

Sadly my experience is not atypical. As I said my husband is a youth pastor and we work in the schools. We hear and see the things that go on. But you can keep believing that things are similar to when you grew up if you like. That is your right.

DCF is looking for budget money.

They are essentially a crony job outfit and are looking for excuses to exist.

DCF is trying to excuse their own incompetence. “its not our fault, homeschooling hides abusers...” or other bs memes.

Unfortunately, the grand jury report overreacts in its recommendations to amend Florida’s homeschool laws because of Nubia’s adoptive parents’ claim that they were homeschooling her for the seven months leading up to her death.

So A alleges that he was with B on a vacation for a few weeks when, in actuality, he was killing B and we get legislation that anyone planning to go on a vacation with anyone else must first be investigated for any possible plans he may have to kill that other person on the vacation or whether any person planning to go on a vacation has ever had any complaints filed against him with respect to vacation-connected trouble.
