Waiting for Superman

Anyone catch the Oprah Show about this new movie? Bill Gates was involved in this project and I can say it really made me think. My kids attend school here in WA. and I was wondering what is being done here where Mr. Gates lives. I sent an e-mail to his foundation and am awaiting a response. I have always had to supplement my kids education and I do believe that this is the job of the parents but I can't see how the schools cannot be improved just a little bit. This film was sad. It shows that the education system in America is really suffering. I have been very tempted to homeschool and won't be surprised to find myself going this route in the not too distant future. But I am wondering if my e-mail will generate any response. My kids school holds Middle Schoolers who parents are in the military and deploy quite frequently. The last thing these people need is to have to worry about what type of education their kids are getting. It's probably the biggest reason I don't work, so I can make sure I am available to supplement my kids education, but not everyone, especially people in the military, have this option.

I agree with many points. But in some areas, I feel we need to be more aggressive. Just my opinion. Love ya. vintage wedding gowns Louboutin Shoes christian louboutin fur boots. Plus Size Wedding Dresses
