The "FLAG SALUTE" it seems like everyone has forgotten about the importence of our flag not to mention respect.if we are not carefull communist will stip in,it seems like all or most of our leaders come from places where they had no freedom,and i believe they want us to do without so they take away from us!

I think that all of these subjects are important in the overall development of children, however when more emphasis is put on classes like athletics and the core curriculum is taking a back seat as being less important, then it becomes detrimental. Learning is fundamental. Without knowledge we cannot evolve.

i believe all these courses and plus some should be added. School should help the child realize their skills and potential. Children are highly intelligent all different areas. different courses help them to recognize this. I did now i could draw from memory or make a figure from model clay until i was in art . I was not encouraged at home or taught. I recognized the skills i had by the subjects i took. I was 10 yrs old and i helped my teacher with the children who were having difficulty in understanding different subjects. i would take the children in need in the cloak room , some of you may know what that was and i tutored them. To this day i enjoy helping people to understand . I worked with alot of national's. School should be discovering who you are what you are capable of. There so much uphevel in homes and children have so much on there minds, they know when they leave school for the day they know they have to back to the unrest life style. I was one of these children. But if school can be a safe haven for them, they will learn. I volunteered in Chicago schools, they were a dangerous place. I tutored at 3 different school just to make sure my children came home a live. When the schools changed and did not teach the 3R'S, i proceeded to teach more so at home. The teachers should be evaluated as much as the students. I have known some bad teachers. There was one teacher who wanted to fail my daughter , i found out she did not grade her work, the principal was made away of this and did nothing. I had to make sure she passed. My children all have college degrees and are highly successful in their fields. Three of them have had military training. I worked hard to make sure they world make it in this world and be subject to it. We need to support the good teachers and eliminate the bad ones. I know it is a challenging field. Sometimes it is no different being in the work place, you have good and bad , empolyees and management. The children are the emplyees and the teacher is the management. The school is the company they are only as good and successful and each other combined together.

It is helpful if students have been provided all courses such as music, gym, computer skills, and art. Each course has its own potential to help students fullly develop.
