#1 Ritalin is the drug of choice. I know of some classes where two thirds of the students are on Ritalin. The problem then later is other drug use. Just say no to drugs is no longer taught. Yes, and boys are targeted but I don't know the numbers on them. Zombie students. Boys cannot be boys.

#2 Never underestimate female solidarity.

#3 The problem here is that the education industry, especially its female contingent, has defined the word "boy" to mean "defective girl".
Thanks, feminists and cultural marxists.

#4 Little boys simply grow up to be old white men. Better to abort or cull them early. Simplifies selective breeding and employment as well. Remember, only in a true matriarchate can the overall numbers and global human footprint be kept to an acceptable level.

#5 Beso, you mean it the way Camille Paglia said: "If it were not for [mainly old white] men, we'll be still living in grass huts." ?

#8 I liked the story of that teacher from last week better.

#9 I don't remember anybody using ritalin when I was in school. That was a long, long time ago. But they did use the board of education. I had a few meetings with the board myself. Boy, that sucker sure burned the backsides. Ouch! No need for a prescription and the results were immediate.

#10 Seems like every single day you see another news story that makes you want to homeschool.

Maybe there's a connection?

Boys are poorer students and male teachers s*xistly compensate for that by raising their grades. It could even be true, I guess.

#13 Glenmore, as I remember it, them girls had this neat, well ornamented script, while mine looked like crows footprints. My female teacher simply could not read it, so I got C's as a rule, cuz she did not really know if I am right or wrong. The next year, we got a male teach who could read crow and my grades improved to B+.
