  • BTD

    Studies show that kids who speak more than one language are better equipped to learn and have better critical thinking skills. CPS and the parents need to figure out how to use this to the child's advantage in home where English Is a second language.

    The sad reality is BTD is that there are many parents (the ones who complain the most) who themselves do not speak, read or write english! They always have someone speak for them. Now that's a joke. Even those who have been here for years. Never even cared to learn....

    The sad reality is BTD is that there are many parents (the ones who complain the most) who themselves do not speak, read or write english! They always have someone speak for them. Now that's a joke. Even those who have been here for years. Never even cared to learn. I for one am glad my kids are all past it now. My son found grade school to boring and easy. It wan't until he tested for Mount Carmel, was it realized he was a fast learner. Even with all those tests they take , he would score high but, there were no classes for excelled kids. He was actually taking college credit classes at Mount Carmel. Did very well too. College as well, finished that last year. Walked into his dream job thanks to him doing a summer internship, signed a contract with the company halfway through his senior year in college. The saw his knowledge of computers. he always loved the guts of one. it has served him well. Very well. It is very nice to see that kids who do and can excel faster now will have a better chance at it now. They are no longer being held on hold to sorta get brain rot. In so many homes today kids are on their own. Sad reality. Their own parents do not have a education and or cannot help with homework due to the lack of language skills. I see it as parental failure rather then a failure of the school. Pretty soon, all the schools will be privately owned and there will no longer be a CPS! Think about it .No more unions to have to put up with and all the other nastiness. And there isn't going to be anything The Unions can do. Food for thought.

    If you click on the link, it says, "Some of our favorites include Arkham Horror, Puerto Rico, Battlestar Galactica, Tribune, Smallworld and Dominion." Doesn't seem like the chess crowd unfortunately.
