None of these recommendations will make a better student. Address the social and cultural issues and concentrate on welfare reform.

CARLAW this is an article on EDUCATION. Not your social agenda. The matter of public school financiaing is all we have heard from NYCOSS (****nyscoss****) during the statewide testimony. Very little about reforming/updating education for the 21st century, with our former DS. He speaks no words about mergers (in fact states there are little savings here) but instead prattles on about more money needed. OUT OF TOUCH. The Reform Commisssion will be working this year with the Governor and Legislature to solve our eductaion needs but the "educationl leadership" of this state have focused upon fiscal needs. It is easier than trying to achieve student improvements. New time, new era, same old overweight, overpaid, MEN.

"According to information on the governor's website, New York state spends more money on its education system than any other state but ranks 39th in graduation rates throughout the nation." Look, it is time Cuomo finally gives NYS some credit after his efforts. Guys/gals, we are the undisputed #1 welfare state in the ENTIRE world. California makes us look like hedons! I have no proplem with teachers who are excpeted to teach, socialize, and/or raise these these kids, and their families for what their cost is. I think teaching, in a state with the population denity and economic might of Mars, could be VERY different from what is happening here. Jamestown no less.

I would have to assume that students who have welfare parents drop out at a much higher rate than the students who have worker parents. Lower welfare and achievement will rise...
