Everyone knows there are budget deficits, except, it seems, the union and the elected officials behind them. The city’s new contract — which gives teachers raises and bonuses of up to 20% and retroactively to 2022 — is particularly rich when taxpaying companies, from local McDonald’s to major corporations such as Morgan Stanley and Meta are making major layoffs. At a $37.5 billion total budget, the city Department of Education spending per student is higher than any other system in the world, let alone country. The public-district schools’ per student spending is $36,000, against the per public-charter-school-student cost of $18,000. Once the smaller-class-size law Gov. Hochul signed is implemented,

Nothing news about this. Teachers should never have been allowed to have a Union.

And what are the results at graduation time for the students? Can they read & write, do they know a true history of the world, can they do math in their heads, a smattering interest in science? If they are so far behind what a charter school produces - why continue with public? School vouchers, school choice.

This is criminal behavior with far-reaching damage done to our future citizens when these substandard, under-educated students are let out into the work force. If private industry had performance numbers like this, the business would go bankrupt and be closed down. That's what should happen to most public school systems in this country. No need to wonder why China is kicking American butt across the globe, smarter and better educated people are the primary reason. When America falls into the grave of history, we only have ourselves to blame.

I cannot wait for New York, California, Illinois, and every other Dem cesspool to run out of OPM (other people's money). Sadly, those who leave don't leave smarter. They bring their voting idiocy with them. Here in Texas, most all the major metroplexes have become stupid.

Teachers make few decisions about what happens in the classroom, except to do nothing, or teach their opinions. The only decisions they make are union related, which is why they are getting raises.

Unionized teachers are PAID to create idiots out of our children so they will vote Dem and undermine American values and culture. It is their way of perpetuating a permanent Democrat underclass.

The only solution - - is a Constitutional amendment prohibiting any government - - federal, state, local - - from owning, operating, or subsidizing a school. This would be similar to the "establishment" clause in the first amendment. If the government can't establish a religion - - then the government shouldn't be able to establish the pseudo-religion of political indoctrination. We can dream - - can't we?

Most schools are funded by local property taxes, which means only property owners are paying the costs of the deals worked out by politicians who are supported by the very people they're "negotiating" on behalf of. If you have high property taxes, you likely have what people will say "good schools". The rest are essentially very high-paid babysitters like in Baltimore where ZERO students are reading or writing at grade level. ZERO.

Looks to me like the Democ'RAT-Union-Communist Machine at work. Years ago (and likely also today the situation in Washington, DC was pretty similar. As it is a Federal 'enclave', the federal government has authorities there that it does not have in any of the States. Recognizing that a decent education is necessary to have the graduates be decent young adults as they enter into society, President George W. Bush instituted a policy that any parent who wanted to get their child out of the failed DC schools and into a decent -or perhaps excellent- private school could obtain a voucher to pay for the schooling. As soon as he came into office, President "Oh" (that is, Zero, who himself went to a series of very exclusive private schools) stopped the program and forced all those aspiring to a decent education back into the failed DC public 'skool' system. From what I can see, the Tactics have changed, but the Objective of the Democ'RATS..... from the old Southern KKK'ers to todays 'multicultural' Leftists (that is, Communists)..... remains the same...."Keepin' the [Enwords] Down". Don't believe me? Look at the results!

Raisi’s three predecessors all visited the region previously, and Iran’s alliances with local authoritarians are not new. But this time, the strategic landscape is different. In 2023, China, Russia, and Iran are all chipping away at what used to be primarily uncontested U.S. influence. Raisi has come to claim Iran’s share in the spoils.

Some observations on special counsel Jack Smith's indictment of former President Donald Trump: No. 1: The indictment is valid. It shows Trump, in voluntarily recorded conversation, revealing to onlookers the contents of government documents classified top secret and, in exchanges with his attorneys, refusing to turn over this material and encouraging them and an aide to conceal it from the government.The contention that these were just "personal records," like the transcripts of interviews of Bill Clinton by historian Taylor Branch were ruled to be, seems unpersuasive.

Here’s a hint. This underlying cause is also the fuel of the epidemic of loneliness identified by the US Surgeon General in May. Here too, few of our experts want to just state the obvious. Marriage – at least the growing lack of it – is the underlying cause of both recent stories. The newly published Nationwide Study on Faith and Relationships shows how the collapse of marriage is causing our societally explosive levels of loneliness and isolation. Paradoxically to some, loneliness is not largely an epidemic for the elderly, but for the young. Our study found those never married in their 30s – both men and women

The best move for former President Donald Trump is the most unexpected. Being unpredictable or unconventional was the trait that helped him win the White House in 2016 and would help him today. The baseball pitcher that tips off his pitches eventually gets hit hard, looks terrible, and does not last long in a game against professional hitters. Trump must do something that no one would expect - maybe a change-up pitch after countless fastballs. Trump should be magnanimous and withdraw from the presidential race.

Conservative radio host Clay Travis called former Vice President Mike Pence "pretty disrespectful" to his old boss in a tense interview Wednesday about whether the Republican presidential candidate would pardon Donald Trump if elected president. Travis, who along with co-host Buck Sexton has said the federal prosecution of Trump for mishandling classified documents is politicized, challenged Pence to directly answer if he would pardon Trump as a matter of principle. "These are serious charges," Pence said. "I can't defend what's been alleged, but the president does deserve to make his defense."

First, the politics. The early indications are that predictions that Trump supporters would rally around him in the event of an indictment appear to be true. A poll by CBS News and YouGov found that 76% of likely Republican primary voters said that the indictment was politically motivated. When asked if the indictment would change their view of Trump, 61% said it would not change their view at all, while 14% said it would change their view of Trump for the better. Just seven percent said it would change their view of Trump for the worse, and 18% said it depends, meaning they weren't really sure.

NEW YORK (AP) — To its members, it’s a grassroots army of “joyful warriors” who “don’t co-parent with the government.” To anti-hate researchers, it’s a well-connected extremist group that attacks inclusion in schools. And to Republicans vying for the presidency, it has become a potential key partner in the fight for the 2024 nomination. Moms for Liberty didn’t exist during the last presidential campaign, but the Florida-based nonprofit that champions “parental rights” in education has rapidly become a major player for 2024, boosted in part by GOP operatives, politicians and donors.

NEW YORK (AP) — Donald Trump’s four years in the White House, even on some of the most consequential days of his presidency, were punctuated by the spectacle and attempts at showmanship he cultivated from years as a tabloid fixture and reality star. The former president’s history-making appearance Tuesday as a criminal defendant in a Florida federal court was no different. The former commander in chief, accused of being careless with some of the country’s most sensitive secrets and obstructing authorities as they tried to recover critical documents, pleaded not guilty to 37 charges. But he treated the day like a campaign event,

Former President Donald Trump on Sunday branded the 37-count federal indictment he faces as nothing more than a “distraction” from the bribery allegations levied against President Biden — while also taking aim at his own ex-attorney general William Barr for not backing him over the classified documents case. Trump, 76, in an interview with ally Roger Stone, said he doubted it was a “coincidence” that he was charged for allegedly storing hundreds of classified government files at his Mar-a-Lago estate at the same time as Republicans revealed more details regarding an FBI informant’s accusation that Biden took part in a $5 million bribery scheme involving the Ukrainian company Burisma.

Fox News reports that twenty Republicans in the House of Representatives sided with most Democrats in voting against a resolution that would have censured Rep. Adam Schiff, (D-Calif.), for repeatedly peddling the hoax that former President Donald Trump colluded with Russia to win the 2016 election. The reprehensible Schiff was one of the foremost proponents of the Trump-Russia collusion hoax. He repeated the falsehood in every forum possible. With every appearance, the lies became more ridiculous. He even claimed that Trump was an asset to the Kremlin. This wasn't a mistake on Schiff's part. Schiff knew these were fabrications but he said it anyway.

Rep. Anna Paulina Luna said Thursday that Republicans will try again to censure Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., for making "false accusations" against former President Trump, after the House voted down a censure resolution against Schiff on Wednesday. In that vote, 20 Republicans rejected Luna’s censure resolution, in part because it recommended a $16 million fine against Schiff for telling "lies" about collusion between former President Trump and Russia, something that several investigations were never able to prove. Luna says that number is roughly half the cost of investigating Trump, probes that were never able to show collusion. One lawmaker, Rep. Tom Massie, R-Ky.,
