Rodeo, you've yet to include a verifiable fact in any of your posts.
Please find one from a credible source and post it, preferably from a
state or national study.
Some of what you said is libelous, so I'll address it here:
I've NEVER cast a slur on you, nor have I EVER called you a bigot. I never
commented on your teaching ability (are you a teacher? based on your
posts, I don't think so), just on your unwillingness to teach math or
science and/or teach in low-performing schools -- both things YOU STATED
in posts on other threads. I also never said you were stupid; your posts
offer sufficient evidence of your intelligence.
Your claim that I have slurred you is truly hypocritical (weak sauce, to
be sure). Apart from making unsupported statements to the effect that CO
schools/ teachers are better than CA's, the only thing you've done here is
hurl insults at posters who question/ disagree with you, i.e. calling them
leptons (I love it!), mental midgets, PC, goodie-goodies, Pollyannas, and
YAWN. Get back to me with some facts, then we can talk. Until then, you're
running against the wind. (Oh, and "et cetera" is two words.)
