When students who should be failing automatically advance torepparttar next grade from elementary school through high school,repparttar 148448 problem keeps getting worse. By graduation day, some students who graduate can barely read their own diplomas. In effect, these students get a counterfeit diploma that is nothing more than a twelve-year attendance record.

What does automatic promotion teach children? Many students tend to set their standards no higher than what their teachers or school expects of them. Automatic promotion lets students coast along with little or no effort, knowing they will advance torepparttar 148449 next grade even if they never study or do their homework, or receive low grades on their tests. Automatic promotion also tells kids they can succeed in life without effort or perseverance.

Besides creating millions of graduating illiterates, automatic promotion tells kids that mediocrity and laziness are acceptable. It tragically sets children up to fail later in life when reality smacks them inrepparttar 148450 face -- when they apply for college or a job. These are not lessons that schools should be teaching our children.

Parents can avoid this problem by taking their children out of public school and taking advantage ofrepparttar 148451 great education options Joel Turtel describes in his book, "Public Schools, Public Menace."

Confessions of a King

At this time and thereafter as well, Rufus wasrepparttar US Ambassador to England. He wasrepparttar 148374 formal Ambassador duringrepparttar 148375 negotiations forrepparttar 148376 Louisiana Purchase and then he continued as special representative. Some of his family then came to Canada and my family legend tells us they said they were United Empire Loyalists. We are related. Yes,repparttar 148377 Kings were United Empire Loyalists and perhaps inrepparttar 148378 same way my mother’s mother’s family (The Hamiltons) were. The Hamiltons are high up inrepparttar 148379 Stuart ‘play both ends againstrepparttar 148380 middle’ gambit but I cannot say that by my grandmother’s time there was much more knowledge about these things than merely buyingrepparttar 148381 Orange or Irish argument and conflict. It certainly was a passionate issue for them. You could call them all monarchists and that includes Rufus King, Ben Franklin andrepparttar 148382 other noble offspring and illegitimates like Jefferson. I am pretty confident thatrepparttar 148383 real power inrepparttar 148384 Louisiana Purchase was Pierre Dupont de Nemours and Rufus, Livingston, Monroe, Jefferson and allrepparttar 148385 rest answered to his beck and call asrepparttar 148386 Rothschilds loaned or gave money to Jefferson andrepparttar 148387 others as they so desired.

The Rothschilds and Duponts are key or primary Merovingian families. Natty Rothschild was more visible in planningrepparttar 148388 wars ofrepparttar 148389 20th Century along with Cecil Rhodes and Randolph Churchill who he loaned (?) great sums of money to.

The Churchill family has people living in King Township near my relatives whererepparttar 148390 Bilderbergs met at a Rothschild Hotel not long ago.
