Local and State politics primarily, in my opinion. Studies "consistantly" show that if a school is provided properly trained and paid teachers, who work in an environment and with the necessary equipment and materials conducive to learning, most students will learn and learn well.

In my opinion, they are doing one of the greatest disservices and harm to their local communities, State, and Nation now, than at any other time in our history. (and no, the Unions are NOT to blame.)

Atheism only means the lack of a belief in God. Why is it so hard for Christians to realize that we dismiss their religion for the same reasons that they dismiss all other religions? It doesn't make us horrible people, immoral, or mean that we are going to hell. It just means that we think the...
