Her sister was also sick, fever and sore throat, her brother had a low grade fever and ached all over. I wasn't the best either, sore throat and fever. There must be something going around, her father even got hot last night.

    But think of this -

    in the US, they allow those people to sit on SCHOOL BOARDS, decide the curriculum, hire and fire teachers and principals, and completely control the education system.

    *shudder*
