I believe there may be a complaint path for this parent claiming discrimination based on poverty. Yesterday while with his mother and grandfather while going to pay the BPUB bill they passed the school and the boy looked out the window and told his mother. "mommy my school."  The boy is devastated and cannot understand why he is now being told he cannot go to school.   BISD of course will spend $100's of thousands of dollars defending the indefensible.  They have $24,000 more a year for the lawyer who bought and paid for their support through campaign donations, but not a penny for the poorest of the poor.  The DOJ and FBI could make an easy case for some form of undue influence on a public servant if they were so inclined, but they are not inclined.


Based on the community where the school is, the school either has no three year old program, one class or two classes.  It is decided on need.  A class is 24 students.  Now consider each class only has 24 students.  Minus those who can walk to school or who can secure a ride, exactly out of those 24 seats, how many really need the bus?  Further take that number and consider how many empty seats are on each bus arriving at the elementary school daily

When you go by the numbers, the proof is there.  You have a bad administration making bad decisions at the expense of the poorest of the poor children and the neediest.  Fuck Desesperanza, and the entire BISD Board.  Not a one of you care a rats ass about the children.  My language is appropriate under the facts.  Now how about all 8 of you face this boy to his face and tell him the truth how you wasted millions and now there is no room for him in school.  A face makes it real and not a one of you care enough to personally tell him the truth about how worthless each and everyone of your are.


 My question is simple, before the worthless universities turned into a business of making PHD's in education. how did we educate the brilliant scientists who brought us some of the most magnificent medical advances in the history of humankind, how did we educate the brilliant scientists who split the atom and created the nuclear bomb, how did we create the brilliant scientists who put us in space, how did we create the brilliant scientists who put us on the moon, how did we create the brilliant doctors who perfected organ transplant and an artificial heart?

Now with the advent of the business model of graduating more and more worthless PHD's in education the US falls further and further behind the rest of the world in education. How?

The universities will not, so the state must limit the number of PHD's in education per year while raising the bar as to knowledge and actual proof of being a successful educator before you can be conferred a PHD in education.

While working on my Masters in Teaching I was ordered to write a paper based on the dissertation written by someone the instructor knew.  I went back to her and said if she forces me to write the paper I will expose her friend as a fraud and request the University pull his dissertation and PHD.  You see she was and is 100% opposed to knowledge and real education.

Within pages I was able to prove to support his dissertation he was falsely claiming the author of contrapuntal reading in literature,  what Edward W. Said had written and then based his dissertation on his false claims which was approved by a bunch of other incompetent PHD's.

Well my threat did not sit well with the instructor.  She did not like being called out for not knowing she was forcing us to read a bunch of crap with a misuse of Edwards W. Said's theories and I was threatening to inform the university where the author received his PHD of the piece of crap they approved.

Well I ended up leaving the course because she was clear, as a PHD she was incapable of being wrong.  She had nothing to teach me or anyone else.  Put her published works will be read and be considered by others as teaching options.

It is time we go back to Dick and Jane, and the basics as they existed when all of the scientific and medical advances were made.  My only exceptions, which the school districts oppose are we adopt classrooms which teach according to learning style as earlier identified by the first teachers.  I also believe each teacher should be allowed to teach without interference from some BS theory by a PHD who failed in the classroom.  Further, each teacher should be allowed to identify students who can learn faster and then offer them more challenging work.

Finally the number of classrooms with only 10 students need to be expanded.  It is real, but BISD ignores it.  Some students cannot handle the anxiety associated with 30 + students.  These students tend to skip class or disrupt the class in response to their anxiety. In a classroom of 10 or fewer they thrive. BISD prefers the drop out.  In a regular classroom they are sent to truancy for skipping class, or end up making the teacher's life miserable because she/he  cannot teach the other students because he/she are dealing with the high anxiety students.  This is unfair to the high anxiety students, the regular students and the teacher who is trying his/her best.

Our goal is to teach and educate and not continue with the puppy mill of PHD's in education who have offered zero, and I mean zero in advancing education.  They have caused the cost of education to go up.

In 1976, UTEP was $210.00 for 6 classes or 18 hours.  The dorms with three meals a day and two on Sunday was $600 a semester.  Books when the students owned the book stores were less than a $100.00

What went wrong?  Education was turned into a business while actually educating was made an afterthought.

Before you challenge me you are going to explain all of the great medical and scientific advances before the explosion of PHD's in education, and why the most brilliant computer scientists have dropped out of the university?  The answer to the latter is simple, they were smarter than their inept teachers, and had no self imposed walls imposed by low self esteem professors to hinder their imagination.  And now the best are billionaires.

Your points are well taken! Higher education in the 21st century is indeed turning out useless people with many degrees of little utility for society in general and for education specifically. A good example is the "doctoral" program in education that was marketed and sold a few years ago in this area by the University of Houston. Again, old boy, well done!
