Walker: NC is giving it's neighbor to the north (my state) a run for it's money for derpiest state. Here we just have a corrupt Governor (and family), a kooky Cuccinelli who wants to be Governor, an anti-gay and anti-woman statehouse, and state sponsored rape via transvaginal wands. Lately NC has been trying to top us. We must fend them off!
Apik0r0s: SevenizGud: Get rid of this overreach by government where it is involved in education AT ALL.Outcome:Federal spending on education: 0State spending on Education: 0Everyone happy - problem solved!Everyone happy, just as in Idiocracy.
plewis: The feds should say no. fark'em. They want to slash their education budget, fine. Way to win that race to the bottom.
czei: Who the hell wants their kids to be taught by teachers with no qualifications and who haven't undergone a background check at the very least? WTF?
dantheman195: cefm: In areas with truly terrible education systems (think major metropolitan areas) you see a massive flight of families with children as soon as they can afford to get out because they're absolutely terrified of sending their kids to shiatty school. The parents will suck up a horrible commute and higher housing costs just to offer their kids a better opportunity.What I don't understand is how North Carolinians can't figure this out - they are driving away their own residents. If I was a NC parent with a kid about to enter school I'd be thinking very strongly about finding another place to live.Or they could get a voucher and send their kids to a better private school.Oh wait, we can't do that because it would take the corrupt connected people (like unions and contractors) out of the loop, oh darn, screw you kids!
wjmorris3: The feds should say no because the Declaration of Independence does not give the feds the authority to spend any money. In theory, all federal spending is unconstitutional.
Apik0r0s: So, how long until the Carolinas bring back being able to own and use black people like farm machinery?
SubBass49: MSFT: FTA:teachers with bachelor's degrees reach $40,000 salaries after 15 yearsRead more here: http://www.newsobserver.com/2013/08/01/3075005/mccrory-backs-nc-schoo l s-spending.html#storylink=cpyWow.WTF? Damn...I'd be homeless if I was paid that poorly here in Southern California. Of course, I'm about 12 years deep into my teaching career, with a masters degree, and am making about $57,000 (which isn't very good given the cost-of-living here). But damn...$40,000 after 15 years? Fark that.I hope every decent teacher moves out of that state ASAP. Let's play out this little GOP game of chicken and see who wins.
SubBass49: Very true, but I want some folks to call their hand. Let the shiat play out for a decade or so. All decent teachers leave the state immediately. Let's fill the schools with amateurs & TFA program interns. Let's watch what they thought were shiatty outcomes get even shiattier. I WANT someone to finally show what will happen if the GOP gets it's way in regards to education so we can be done with that bullshiat permanently.
qorkfiend: It's hard to believe this state went for Obama in 2008. What changed since then? Did all the Democrats move away, or something?
