From AJC news story: "People have cut back on driving and researchers are scrambling to explain why." REALLY??? With gas at $3.50 a gallon they need researchers to figure this out???
What's with all the hatred here people? The world needs business leaders with their masters degrees AND the world needs practical tradesmen with their electrical, plumbing, welding, auto repair skills. Neither one is better or more important than the other and we all need each other. So enough already!
It seems to me if parents would help teach their kids, Georgia would not be last in education. This is not just a school's responsibility, it's yours as a parent also.
Does anybody have a honest reason why public money must be spent on a facility, for a private owned business, to allow them to make more money? Only the government seems to be able to think this is great idea.
You can still be a jerk no matter what your GPA.is.
Falcons demand $300 million in tax money or they'll cut off downtown football. Isn't that what the cops call extortion?
How is it an Atlanta Public official makes as much money as the President of the United States? Who approves this nonesense and why isn't anyone held accountable?
You're wrong. Politicians understand politics very well. That is why they become very wealthy. We are the stupid ones. We keep electing the bad ones to another term & we don't march & demand changes.
I think schools should start teaching Common Sense because America seems to be seriously lacking in this department.
So...if someone breaks in my house, I'm supposed to hope someone in the bona fide militia is going to come and save me and my family? Yeh, that should work...
When I was a child in school, we had "Teachers" and I made very good grades and received an excellent education. Now, we have "Educators" and the school system is spitting out uneducated children.
Why all the hate for 4.0's all of a sudden? Working hard and defying the odds (especially here in GA) to get a good education should be rewarded, whether for Vo-tech people or for college graduates.
I'm always disappointed when Obama's pants don't actually catch on fire.
Actually, how CAN the olympics drop wrestling, remember it was one of the original sporting events of the very first Olympic games in Athens, Greece.
Why not get a 4.0 GPA *and* a job skill? I did, and I've never been out of work!
People we have already got term limits. Vote the bums out!
Isn't it ironic that the President of the United States is coming to visit a dysfunctional school system?
President Obama, said in his SOTU address,"claimed that none of his proposed new spending would add a single nickel to the deficit!", that is true, it would add billions to it.
American Idol and the X Factor have ruined both shows by making them more about the judges, and less about the singing.
My IQ is 135 and yet, my high school GPA was 2.05, because high school bored me. GPA is a meaningless measure of intelligence. And truth be told, the same is often said of IQ's.
Love isn't about who you live with...it's about who you cannot live without.
My husband who does not even have a high school diploma made 6 figures last year. I have a BS degree and made less than 60K. Go figure.
If you're JUST NOW getting visions of 1984 when watching our politicians, you've been asleep for the past couple of decades.
Increasing the minimum wage is the quickest way to put small businesses out of business. This is not rocket science.
I am really tired of Taylor Swift.
I think the idea of the Falcons moving to an Atlanta suburb is G-r-r-r-reat! How about Augusta?
Emergency Hazard warning lights are for when you are stopped not when you are moving.
If we all observed the "Torah law of debt cancellation after 7 years" then no loans of more than 7 years would be available. Think before you vent.
Why is it somehow OK for the Georgia Senate to "haze" new members of the Senate? Oh well, we elected them to continue their childish, ridiculous behavior, so that's what we deserve.
There are those of us with the 4.0 who also have the vo-tech skills of the 2.0's. We are the engineers with MBA's who were also Boy Scouts.
You can "stick a fork" in Carnival Cruise Lines.
Years ago, I was interviewed for a teaching position (Family and Consumer Sciences) at the top Cobb co. high school. The principal said that his students didn't need that subject as all his students went to college!
An economist's guess is liable to be as good as anybody else's.
You're right, the Tea party doesn't represent the views of most Republicans. That's why Republicans will continue losing.
Now days Republicans are just Democrat lite while the Tea Party is the only true conservative movement.
How's the value of your house and new pool you installed just before the crash?
I think that if the South decided to rise again, we could actually beat the North right now!
I am so sick of this all-or-nothing attitude with guns. You are right, stricter gun laws and comprehensive background checks will not solve everything. But, it will make SOME difference and when innocent people are being slaughtered, some difference is better than none.
You'll need the 4.0 business degree person to negotiate with the 2.0 vocational person when civilization collapses.
DUI laws haven't stopped all drunk drivers, true. But, the programs have helped reduce the numbers of incidents and the same will be true for gun laws. No one is saying this is the end-all-be-all solution. Anything and everything we can do, should be done.
Oooh, someone is jealous of the owners of the dogs in the Westminster dog show.
Marco Rubio might be smart, but he failed to make that clear in his rebuttal to the President's SOTU address. His ideas were exactly the same ones Romney ran on and lost. I was not impressed.
The 2nd Amendment mentions a "Well regulated militia". There's nothing well regulated about our current gun culture.
I don't really care that Rubio had to take a sip of water during his speech. I care more about all the flat-out lies he told. Please people, look at the fact checking. Nearly everything out of his mouth was an absolute lie.
