    You amercans are fucked beyound nightmare. Ruled by radical EXTREMIST CUNTservative Christians, who plans to shove their "bible" all the way up your anus, no matter what ! But ironicly, none of them pray what they preach. They act more like vicious righteous dogs on rabies. More like someone who worship the GOD DAMN Satan ! CUNTservatives have developed, through the years, a very sneaky way to pretend to be "good and puritan guys" just to catch the vote of the evangelical CUCKOOS. But behind their "puritanism", hides the true FASCISM AND DICTATORSHIP, just like the one we see in China !
    So, FUCK RELIGIONS and FUCK CUNTservatives !

    First of all, it is evident that a student must grow and learn to achieve a level of proficiency and skill. Second of all, why does the government feel the need to regulate schooling? Just so my assistant teacher can say how great FDR was when the fact that FDR was the only president ever to put American citizens in Internment camps, just because they were of Japanese descent (Executive Order 9066), was never EVER mentioned in all my years of schooling? Just so these democrats can snatch up every teacher job and brainwash us, telling us that CNN was a neutral news site when my friend did her current events on a study that showed CNN was the MOST biased news site. Just so they can interrupt my current events when I show statistics stating that 60 million people of middle eastern countries support ISIS, and more than 250 million are undecided. And those are only the people stupid enough to not automatically say they hate ISIS, an organisation that throws homosexuals off roofs, sexually enslaves girls and women, beheads Christians, and routinely tortures its victims. Sounds pretty unamerican to me. So the teachers can restrain us from speaking the truth and our opinions unless it agrees with the liberal agenda. So my Spanish teacher can tell us "no me gusta Donald Trump," say how she hates America. Well then she should just leave. If a teacher said they didn't like Hillary Clinton they would be fired immediately, some kid would complain to their obnoxious parents saying that their teacher had a dissenting opinion than them, oh God forbid. What happened to freedom of speech? My dad can't even post the statistics he did on taxes because the government said that they thought he was trying to get out of paying taxes, and he would be harassed. What happened to no censorship?

    Senator Franken, you are a man of honor and integrity, and it's sad and it really hurts that you had to resign. You are man enough to own up to your mistakes. I was you inferred that is much more The nincompoop on high would do because he does not want to admit the truth. As Billy Bush said on Stephen Colbert it's no surprise the Trump claims that that was not his voice on the bus. If anything he's throwing us under the bus. And that redneck Yahoo Roy yippee yahoo MooRON- should be hooked up to a polygraph, but he would lie so much that he would break the machine -it's a shame.
    Trump. and Moore should be deported to North Korea, handcuffed to one of Kim Jung Un's middles, and let it fly into the kremlin.

I would understand not wanting to be around their own kid, they're all kind of dumb in a way.

    * based upon voting records in which democrats voted a crack head (Marion Barry) and a man who drowned a woman(Kennedy) solidly back into office. Franken will have to try a lot harder than mauling an unconscious woman to get un-elected, Progressives like a guy with a little edge to him.

    Also, completely outside the DeVos calamity, the proficiency vs growth argument is absolutely terrible. In both systems, the kids st the top are particularly ignored, as they're either testing above the standard anyway, or have very little room to grow. When someone is in the highest score tier already, they can't increase that, and things like incentives and rewards completely skip over them due to that. There's points where growth has to cap unless you have relatively unrealistic standards of consistent perfect scorers. And as a lot of scoring tends to get divided into about 5 scoring tiers, low 3s, for example, aren't going to likely reach consistent 4s, so they'd be given about enough time to ensure they don't drop to 2, but that's about it, Those who are higher ranking on their numbers will end up prioritised. Granted, proficiency is a dumb standard as well, as it's completely arbitrary and some things are more important than others to know. Really, our whole standardised testing system needs to be thrown out, as it's doing our students more harm than good, and setting increasingly unrealistic goals on them, and then tying funding for the school and teachers to poorly-thought-out standards, is just a recipe for disaster. We're screwing over teachers and calling it just, sending children into panic attacks, and in many cases, encouraging schools or teachers to drop the students who won't meet standards, which, by the standards' metrics, should be the kids who need the most help.
