CoreyReese23: yo
delete72
: hey
CoreyReese23: so did you hear bout my idea to file a class action law suit
delete72
: yes
delete72: i withdraw from the class
CoreyReese23: what/
delete72
: i'm not going to be a member of the class
CoreyReese23: why not?
CoreyReese23
: er
CoreyReese23
: why*
delete72
: theres no basis for it
delete72: no legal right to education
CoreyReese23: but thier philosophy is unethical
delete72
: nreally
CoreyReese23: have tio talked to the ap's about why they dont have more advanced students?
delete72
: whats the reason?
CoreyReese23: because they feel that it reduces the intellectual level of discussion in classes when you take out the advanced kids. they think we'll bring up thier test scores so they dont want us separated
delete72
: oh, right
delete72: that
delete72: yeah
delete72: not illegal
delete72: stupid
CoreyReese23: not fair
delete72
: basically, they see it as benefiting all
delete72: fair doesnt mean anything
CoreyReese23: other sxchools in the district dont do that
delete72
: it benefits all the lesser ppl
delete72: so what
CoreyReese23: thee should be district wide uniformity
delete72
: no
delete72: thats not a law either
delete72: nor is it really true
delete72: theres no uniformity in class offerings
delete72: scheduling
CoreyReese23: true
CoreyReese23
: we pay taxes
delete72
: no we dont
CoreyReese23: why should we be gyped out of an education that is superior and fully logistically possible
CoreyReese23
: i do
delete72
: sales tax?
CoreyReese23: no
CoreyReese23
: income
delete72
: well then
delete72: doesnt matter
delete72: that doesnt pay for ed anyway
delete72: you dont pay property tax
CoreyReese23: ture
CoreyReese23
: ah
CoreyReese23
: but
delete72
: and the tax issue is irrellevant
CoreyReese23: our parents to
CoreyReese23
: do
delete72
: they could always do more
delete72: theres no line of entitlement
CoreyReese23: why should we get a lesser education
delete72
: suing for lack of an AP class is like suing for a bad teacher
delete72: or for them telling you one wrong fact in class
CoreyReese23: no
CoreyReese23
: im saying its because we have no honors soph or frosh lit
CoreyReese23
: not bio honors
CoreyReese23
: no world hist honors
delete72
: still
CoreyReese23: no senior level ap social studies
CoreyReese23
: its wrong
delete72
: why
delete72: why is it more wrong than a bad teacher
delete72: because its 'bigger'?
delete72: because its 'more easily fixed'?
CoreyReese23: bad teachers are intangible
CoreyReese23
: you can fix that problem ealisy
CoreyReese23
: this you coudl fix easily
delete72
: you mean yo ucant?
CoreyReese23: you cant*
CoreyReese23
: gonzio wants to teach honors world hist
delete72
: ability to be fixed is irrelevant
CoreyReese23: williams would teach honors wrld lit
delete72
: as for tangibility
CoreyReese23: sure it is
delete72
: williams couldnt teach it
delete72: and
delete72: tangibility doesnt mean anything
delete72: you think its a problem
CoreyReese23: thier job is to provide us with the best education they can given tiher resources
delete72
: they dont
delete72: just like you think the teachers bad
delete72: its all opinion
delete72: no
CoreyReese23: why couldnt williams?
delete72
: they think they're giving a better education as a whole by keeping kids in lower classes
delete72: well, thats my own personal opinion
delete72: but anyway
delete72: see
CoreyReese23: haha
CoreyReese23
: you had her?
delete72
: they dont have an obligation to provide the top students the best possible
delete72: her? mr. williams?
delete72: oh wait
delete72: honors world lit
delete72: never mind
delete72: i thought you said he could also teach honors history
CoreyReese23: gonzo teach honors hist
delete72
: anyway
CoreyReese23: Mrs williams teach honors world lit
delete72
: they dont have an obligation to provide top students best possible ed
delete72: otherwise they'd cut all the funding from every single lower class
delete72: to teach the top 1 person
delete72: everything
delete72: they have the obligation to provide the best balance
delete72: and in their minds,
delete72: they're doing that
delete72: what you think doesnt matter
delete72: and even if it did
delete72: this entire thing has no legal standing whatsoever
delete72: i shouldnt have even said obligation
CoreyReese23: its all about pressure
CoreyReese23
: first i'll go to the board
delete72
: its not like when you get a job you have obligation to do it well
delete72: they'll just fire you
CoreyReese23: an ethical one
delete72
: bs
delete72: its not unethical at all
delete72: they think their way is the best balance
CoreyReese23: a moral one if you believe in go
delete72
: 75% says any board will agree with them
CoreyReese23: but it isnt for us
delete72
: right
delete72: thats what balance means
delete72: under your hypothesis
delete72: they should screw you
CoreyReese23: perhaps but 75% says parents wont
delete72
: and just teach ONE PERSON
delete72: see, you just want a different balance
delete72: but its ultimately their decision what balance to provide
CoreyReese23: parents hold the power
delete72
: and like i said
delete72: bs
delete72: maybe over a teacher
delete72: not over school board
delete72: and just because other parents are less vocal
delete72: doesnt mean anything
delete72: anyway
delete72: get over it
delete72: dinnner
CoreyReese23: k
CoreyReese23
: cya
delete72
: back
CoreyReese23: hello

: not at all
delete72: make a fool of yourself
delete72: and look like an arrogant brat
delete72: some smartass kid who thinks school sucks
delete72: learned a little about law
delete72: knows about this thing called a 'class action lawsuit'
delete72: has an outrageous sense of entitlement
CoreyReese23: haha
delete72
: i think you'd go farther convincing the admin that all the kids are just going to do college advantage
delete72: and they wont get the benefit they think they willl anyway
delete72: or something like that
