Real happy ending. Now she has to pay tuition so her kid can go to a school that's not infested with violent animals.

I'm sure this one will get a full ride scholarship to Harvard.

UPDATE: Middle school fight | News - Home

Apparently this kid was beat in the locker room and after leaving the locker room a group of 10-20 beat him again.

Check out his face. I don't know a lot of PTSD, but I wonder if something like this could cause it? After the beatings and embarrassment from all the attention, I'm sure the kid must be emotionally scarred for life.

Welcome to Jacksonville. My hometown where I went to school. Now that I have a child, no way in hell will I go back there for my child to go through that system. That is my feeling on Jax.

Exactly.

"Public education" is the ultimate oxymoron.

Unfortunately, you are correct. Some of the seriously stupidest people I know home school.

On the other hand, some of the seriously stupidest people I know are teachers.

So there ya have it!
