    Mech E/Math minor and Construction Engineering/Business minor for the two boys.

    Both got 100% full rides to UNT. Coming out of school with no debt and not having to worry about money while in school are huge factors for the both of them.

    Computer Animation for my daughter. UT doesn't even offer that as an option.

    Sangre, UNT is trying to eliminate all conservative student groups affiliated with their school. But that fits my statement. UNT worked for your kids even though the school is crazy. It's all we can do at this point.

    We have lost a very important principal in the Bible. "If any man will not work, let him not eat". It's as simple as that, either they are teachers or they are not. If they wish to not teach, then they can be replaced. I'm going to start going to board meeting for my school district, and I will no longer let my voice go unheard in these matters. These unions have the right to do as they want, I have the right to pull my children out of their school and put them in private school or better yet home school them.

    oh if only more could have means for that choice. Or better still, if only more would simply make that choice.

    Yes, Bill, but neither choice reduces your ad valorem taxes, which are outrageous

    Yes, but I can keep from letting my children's minds from being brainwashed by liberal drones.

    Fortunately I grew up in a small town, where teachers were not allowed to discuss politics; hell they weren't even allowed to drink. Everyone was a yellow dog democrat. I had to wait until I arrived at The University of Texas to experience the attempted liberal brainwashing. What I experienced was misfits and malcontents turning me into a Republican.

    Ironically, my grandfather was a dyed in the wool Democrat and union organizer, yet when I was a child he told me that Texas was going to elect John Tower, and that in my lifetime I would be a Republican. That was in the early 60s

    Speaking of John Tower. My mother was one of the original “Tower Bells”.

    Your mother was damn good looking then. Everyone on Capitol Hill invited Tower to every function because the Belles” would be there.

    Also, if you wanted to visit DC, the Belles could get you passes to every attraction. My children got a private tour of The White House thanks to one of them. It was a 7 AM, but still separate from the common masses.

    Lol, San Antonio never changes and if it does it's doing so at a snails pace. The hard core idiots in San Antonio all seem to migrate to Austin.

    We're probably going to make that choice for Deez, Jr. at least this year. He had to get a tetanus booster this past week, and I asked his German pediatrician if he thinks kids should be at school. He said the health risks to kids are so minor that it shouldn't even be a point of serious discussion.

    Having said that, I'm planning to keep Deez, Jr. home schooled this year - not because of health risks but because of the attitudes and how disgruntled the "guvmint" school teachers are. Some of them are probably too professional to take their freakouts out on a 6 year old kid, but there are plenty who aren't. And there's no way for me to know how his particular teacher will be until it's too late. They don't want to show up, and I sense that they'll do what they can to make it difficult on parents and students to teach us a lesson for sending the kids back.

    Horn6721 Half of seeming clever is keeping your mouth shut.

    Of course he is right but there is no way to wrest control from the unions.
    How long before he is doxxed?
