I find it interesting that the title of the article is "Understanding Common Core: A BreakdownRead More of the Pros and Cons" yet the visual that is shown is about a protest against it. ??? I am a parent who actually knows what Common Core is and supports it. The "veteren" teachers you talk about in the article who are "opting out and retiring early" are the teachers who we all know should have already retired. This it the 21st Century, people! Learn what the Common Core really is, then make your own assessment.

More often then not, we have trouble fitting it all in. More so for my almost 12 year old then my 7Read More and 10 year old. My 12 year old has so much homework on at least 2 to 3 of the nights during the week that she only gets 8 to 9 hours of sleep. It drives me crazy that she is not getting enough sleep!

The truth is that some kids get too much homework and some do not, and that is because we measureRead More homework by the assignment, not by the clock. In reality, kids work at different paces from each other, and those who work more slowly have more homework, measure by the clock. It is unrealistic, I daresay cruel, and without any education al value to expect a child who reads or writes more slowly than peers to do the same amount of work at night. www.thehomeworktrap.com.

Wish more hard numbers were available for COM, particularly those who go on to four year collegesRead More and what happens to those who don't stay on. With enrollment down to 6,620 in 2013, less than 400 graduate with a two-year certificate?

I did my time at COM and went on to get my Masters in Psychology.
should we fill every inch of Nature with WiFi, or should we be cautious?
John William Wright May 23, 2013 at 10:48 am
Excellent and long over due questions. The human brain and nervous system are electrical systems,Read More so it is logical to assume that all the EMF fields we humans create are impacting us. I did computer networking for years and we had a client in Sleepy Hollow who could literally feel WiFi in his head, like a drilling sensation, as well as cell phone and cordless phone signals. His wife did not believe him, so she had him go to a neurologist who did blind tests and was able to identify when and what kind of devices were being used in an adjacent room. He hired us to hardwire his neighbors networks so he would not feel them. He also wears protective shielding when he goes out in public. Canary in the digital coal mine, perhaps? The rush for technological solutions to everything rarely considers their impact, thus creating more problems which require further technological solutions. When you take the wrong fork in a road and know you're lost, do you keep going or do you turn around? The truth shall set us free. Love is the only way forward. John W. Wright San Anselmo, CA

John Wright has experience in setting up taxation. He counseled San Anselmo to use a General Tax (noRead More spending restrictions) rather than a Special Tax (restricted use) to fix roads and small drains. Trustee Wright will Lawyer-Heavy the Council which is okay when exemplary transparency and complete fiscal disclosure is not a virtue of paramount importance.
