      I think you've got a pretty good outlook on it. If nothing else, graduating from college shows you can stick through something for four years. I didn't go away to college, but was working before and during. My sister did go away, but wasn't working and lived on her own. I think we both got a lot of the benefit out of that experience.

      I actually cared about college compared to high school (when I was a senior I was more concerned about my job, and just didnt' want or need to apply myself). My sister learned what it was like to pay bills when renting an apartment.

      I think the most important lesson that my parents taught me (and my wifes parents taught her) was the example of working hard, and staying together. I hope to teach that same lesson to my kids.

      Also, just remember as bad as it seems; there are plenty of young people who have their heads on straight.

      Good for you Charles. My trophy wife and I have been married for 37-years and we both have faith in the youth of today. With the proper direction and guidance I am excited to see what our youth are capable of. I'm sure in the 60's no one thought my wife and I would ever amount to anything.

                LOL-What have I told you about teasing the kids that ride the short-bus?

                Rick and I actually had a discussion today about some future work where he will need your help. I think with help he could do a great job.

                            I'd like to add that while I do not excuse the attitude of some students and parents to blame teachers for their own failures, the problem is more complicated. Because of the present economy there are folks who had no intention or desire to become teachers, taking teaching positions because of some unexpected situation. There is also the problem of standardized testing and no child left behind which is forcing teachers to prepare students to pass certain tests rather than really teach the course properly. In our *** backwards society students reflect a dysfunctional home life and school environment as well. Yes, there are still good teachers, students and parents, but I think there are more and more problems within those groups. I'd like to think we could get back to basics and have better marriages, stable jobs, students with better skills to function is society, but what are the chances of that happening? Is the Camelot of the American dream, the family unit and what once made America great gone for good? I know that for some here the dream is alive and very strong. I wish that more of you find that dream and hold onto it during these difficult times.
