sooooo fascinated

with the SIAC

s we are some of

the COOLEST cats

you will ever run across

 :nod:  If I were  you, I'd want to be around us, too.   :lol:

Give me a break. GA DOT should be suspended also then. They dropped the ball. Atlanta and its surrounding areas are a major city. No way it should been shut down. The blame goes on all of the folks in charge.

Man, you ain't ever lied. Interstates were mostly clear but downtown Atlanta??? SHEETS OF FREAKIN ICE!!!!  I was so pissed off! They didn't salt the downtown streets until early Friday morning [or maybe late that Thursday] DAYS AFTER several days of snow and freezing temps.

DAMN, BUSTERS!!!!!!   >:(

Well, Jesus had a hard time too. It's a long lonely bumpy road. But, it is my life's mission to get you SIAC Cats to the promise land.

--------------------BLANK STARE--------------------!  :brickwall:

Of course i don't expect you SIAC Cats to agree with me on this because you like to have your little paws on everything and travel in straight lines.

....says the grizzly who is always trying to get in to the SIAC's den to see whats what.  ::)

 Now ain't THAT the pot calling the kettle BLACK!   :tongue2:


It is hard to understand how that could have occurred' in second-grade class

A California elementary school teacher has been suspended indefinitely after school officials said a pair of second-graders performed sex acts in class with the teacher present, San Francisco media reported Friday

Whistle-blowing teachers targeted

His bosses had no trouble dismissing Ryan Abbott’s report of cheating on standardized tests in an Atlanta school. They simply cast him in a self-fulfilling role, Abbott says: “disgruntled teacher.”

Abbott was already on probation, after four years at Benteen Elementary. His students had not posted the big increases in test scores seen in other classrooms. Yet he had the audacity to level charges against a popular colleague. After word of Abbott’s allegations spread through the school, Benteen’s principal opened an ethics case — against him.

“It’s put me in a very difficult spot,” said Abbott, whose job security remains tenuous even though state authorities corroborated his claims of cheating at Benteen. “It’s a tough place to be.”

Abbott’s experience illustrates the perils that befall Atlanta Public Schools teachers who report cheating or other wrongdoing, an investigation by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution shows.

The newspaper reviewed reports of the school district’s internal investigations and spoke with more than a dozen current and former Atlanta educators. The documents and the interviews describe a culture that punishes employees who report wrongdoing and rewards those who keep silent. Some whistle-blowers end up under scrutiny themselves. Others are subjected to questions about their mental health. Some lose their jobs.

The prospect of even the most subtle forms of reprisal not only discourages teachers from reporting impropriety, educators say, it makes them more susceptible to pressure to cheat on such assessments as the Criterion-Referenced Competency Test.

Not one educator confessed during the school district’s initial inquiry into widespread cheating on the 2009 CRCT. Now, under threat of criminal prosecution if they lie to state agents investigating the cheating scandal, numerous Atlanta educators have acknowledged witnessing or participating in irregularities.

“It’s just this thing that everyone knows is going on but nobody says anything,” said former teacher Sidnye Fells, who alleged that administrators at Dobbs Elementary cheated. “It’s the elephant in the room. If you say anything, you lose your job.”

One day during her five years at Dobbs, Fells said, an administrator pushing a cartload of papers stopped at her room after students had left, handed over their CRCT answer sheets and books containing the test questions, and told her to “check for stray marks.”

Teachers aren’t supposed to be left alone with test papers — much less test papers and an eraser. So Fells assumed the administrator was encouraging her to correct wrong answers. She says she made no changes.

Fells later reported other testing irregularities, but state investigators found no probable cause to sanction the administrator she named. Fells resigned from the Atlanta schools in 2008 after a dispute with the district over sick leave.

The district says it has adopted “strict policies prohibiting any form of retaliation” against whistle-blowers. A statement released Friday said Superintendent Beverly Hall “strongly believes it is important to maintain an open and retaliation-free workplace culture.”


Its ridiculous that the entire school system AND STUDENTS have to suffer because of incompetence and ignorant chit going on among the school board.

CAU Drumline

This was last Thursday [or was it Friday?]. Anyway, I stopped by and got my free CAU donut [shuuddup, Yogi  :lol: ] before rolling on to work. Okay, fine, I bought a dozen too.  :tongue2:

 And if you recognize the voice narrating, that's WCLK's own morning dj, Morris Baxter [a Norfolk State alum and a really cool cat].

 ;)  just thought I'd share it.  :nod:

BP, I concur  ;D

In an attempt to pacify my increasingly negative sister I decided to partake in a visit of The King Center along with her, Charles(the "Man" whose sack I came out of), and his children. While I hate him and his children, I considered this a good thing to get my older sister off my back and visit the King center(a place I have been dreaming about visiting).

OOOOooookaaaay. Soooo, apparently you and "Charles" are not close. I understand its like that sometimes, dude. You hate HIS children too? I assume these are your half-siblings?

The National Historic Site that is maintained by the Park Service is AWESOME, it is just the King Center itself that is disappointing.  It is housed inside the Historic Site but the differences between the two are amazing.  

VG, the center maintained by the Park Service is indeed very nice and definitely outshines the King Center across the street.  If any of you have not seen this new facility, it is definitely worth the visit. If you've already seen the center across the street, nothing has really changed [for the better] so once is really enough.

I want to go back, and I want to go back to the Laraine Motel in Memphis.  I also want to go to the Civil Rights Museum over in Alabama too...

I want to check out the Lorraine too when I visit Memphis. As for the Bham Civil Rights Institute, it is awesome and I have visited it several times, at least 5, taking different visitors with me for their first time.

Folks KNOW about it and continue to come regardless of ads or not. V103 is heavily promoting the event as they always do.  HONDA has built a winning event that attracts visitors from all over ...busloads of cuzzins, as well as locally.  Pmist, trust and believe, IT WILL BE A FULL HOUSE UP IN THE DOME!  NO doubt about that!  ;)

If anything they use I feel, I think msgs for couples to get their point across. Like I said Relationship Expert indeed Hill ::)

Does that go like this?

He:  "I feel she gets on my damn nerves"

She: "I feel like he is retarded for not putting the seat down"


okay, just kidding.....  ;D
