My blog looks weird when viewing from my iphone. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able
to resolve this problem. If you have any suggestions, please share.
Cheers!

Comment on MSEDBLOG: Keep an eye on these crazy education bills by Mississippi Education Blog | School Choice is a Sleazy Carnival Game http://www.msedblog.net/2016/02/06/comans-keep-an-eye-on-these-crazy-education-bills/#comment-7437 Fri, 31 Mar 2017 02:03:34 +0000 http://www.msedblog.net/?p=12690#comment-7437 […] Here’s what I mean: Educating people is expensive. And the people footing the bill don’t enjoy that part, generally. We will try everything under the sun to avoid spending more money on schools. Mississippi, for example, has underfunded schools 19 times in the last 21 years, and our state is perennially ranked near 50th in the nation.  Rather than own up to the fact our schools are chronically underfunded, our legislature has proposed every education reform they can get their hands on.

This is true that if we would not fight for our children, then there will be a time when we will not be able to forgive ourselves.

Comment on Koonlaba: What do you think about the kindergarten controversy? by Mary Kitchen http://www.msedblog.net/2016/07/28/koonlaba-what-do-you-think-about-the-kindergarten-controversy/#comment-4421 Sat, 17 Sep 2016 03:33:43 +0000 http://www.msedblog.net/?p=15854#comment-4421 Children learn through play and discovery. It saddens me that they are not given the opportunities my children were given to learn through play. I agree with Mrs. Smizik, and having had a child she taught, I know the benefits she is referring too. Also having another child that was younger and did not have the same learning curriculum, I found my younger daughter was consistently more stressed by the demands placed on her and the lack of unstructured time to learn and express herself.
