Eugene Robinson, You are either being disingenuous, or you can't see clearly. None in the main stream media touched on Obama, in fact they manipulated the public and refused to even touch the aforementioned issues. Carson's comments can hardly be construed as whining. He is merely stating facts, as were other candidates, regarding the blatant bias of main stream media who are supposed to be reporting. By the way, the story about Carson's "fabrication" was reclaimed and altered after it was proved erroneous; so who was being dishonest? How did you who become nationally syndicated?

Such a "nice" photo of a woman and two young girls; a purposeful distortion of the root of planned parenthood. "Nice" job, Kelly and Patrick.

The writer forgets that the parents of these students who choose to send children to private schools are exercising their rights to have their students educated as they see fit. These parents are not illegal immigrants stealing taxpayer monies, they are indeed the same residents funding public schools that are simply requesting their monies paid into the system be distributed fairly so they may also benefit.

Apparently life is so wonderful in Schenectady that the police have to amuse themselves searching out perfectly innocent people who are minding their own business to arrest. I am amazed that so many Schenectadians have thus far avoided arrest.

An infant does not suddenly "become" as it leaves the womb. No more than a plant suddenly becomes an onion, beet, carrot, or potato when we pull it from it's unseen growing space. A child is fully formed before moving through the birth canal. We do not live in the dark ages. Technology now let's us see life inside the womb. Why this love affair with the killing of defenseless American children? There is no excuse for this barbaric behavior and those who condone it are foolish reprobates. Think about what you are saying..If someone numbs you so pain in their best guess is "unlikely", is it then okay to kill you? What is this nonsense , this utter evil, of so recklessly destroying life?

Wow! What arrogant, idiotic arguments dan. Evolution is not proven nor will it ever be. It is called a theory and it is really not a theory at all according the the scientific definition. It is a lie foisted upon students. If you check statistics from the past 50 years, violent crime has indeed increased along with many other behaviors detrimental to society. The love of God compels us to treat each other as we would want to be treated, except we deny God in schools and the public arena and don't want even His name mentioned. What is so fearful about mentioning God that we have to make every effort to expunge Him from society? And as for you ChuckD, I'm sick of hearing this nonsensical "argument" for excluding God. We are in America, a Christian nation, evidenced by our founding documents and many of the writings of our founding fathers, but they are not taught in school either. People who come to America from other countries who worship Allah came by choice and have no business trying to change our country into something else. We welcome other religions, but not so they can deny our practice of Christianity. If we weren't a Christian nation we would be like all others and then there would be no place on earth to run to when evil strikes and no one to help when disaster comes. Congratulations Rebekah! Thank you for your courage. We may all need such courage ..Christians are the most persecuted of all faiths...and that IS a fact!

Schenectady had a Charter school. From its inception, it was bullied out of business.

How about coming together as a team, including parents and students, without blame and anger, but determined commitment towards the common goal of becoming civilized and attaining excellence in all we do. Parents should be held accountable and offered parenting skills. If children were taught correct behaviors there would not be the complete disrespect and outrageous problems we have in schools. Anyone with foresight should have seen this coming- for years it's been brewing in a mixture of lack of consequences, anger, and the blame game. The root of the problem is disrespectful behavior stemming from lack of purpose and direction. No teacher, principal, para, or superintendent can change this in a few minutes at school. When we refuse to admit we need a code of right and wrong, when parents are unable to discipline their own children because of lack of knowledge or commitment, when children are untrained in self control, this is the result. We need all parties: parents, students, and school staff to determine together there is a problem and commit to its solution. Instead there is anger and blame and an overwhelming fear that things are out of control. It is not an easy road back to civilization and one person cannot alone accomplishment the journey. The trip to where we now find ourselves as a society was not instant either, we are the proverbial frogs slowly approaching the deadly boil. When all else fails, there's always prayer.
