People behave the way they believe. Poor people who stay poor have poor thoughts and even unhealthy beliefs about wealth and the people who generate it. The poor person is preoccupied in his mind by how bad he has it and how good the wealthy have it. I always did say, someone may give you a bus ticket, but no one is going to just hand you a BMW. If you want a BMW, you are going to have to go and get it. Decide what you want and go after it. First thing first Education is very important but some people prefer not to better them selfs. In they believes Education was a waste of time and they leave school thinking they can pick it up later in life with finding work, with no Education it is not happening.
Education increases the competitive advantage of individuals but only so long as others don’t do the same thing. If everyone had a college degree, we would have millions of people with college degrees living in poverty. The availability of ‘better-paying jobs’ isn’t even close to the size of the population in need of them.
The ‘free market’ has not existed for over 100 years. It exists today primarily in the theories of university economists and others trying to defend against criticism of how capitalism actually works and what it does to millions of people’s lives.
The rich get richer and the poor get more poor.
Homeless is a City’s eyesore and does not go away. To the average person it is a bunch of people that want to be different in any way you can think about. They are losers of the society and the way they conduct them self is degrading for the human race and we have to feel sorry for them. But why bee sorry for them they prefer to live in the open like dogs that can com and go as they please no pressure, because pressure they hate, work they dislike and been normal is too hard to handle.
Normal people look the other way when they are out and about but been hassled about money where you go it is hard to live with, and we should not have to, they really think the rest of the City have to be raked down to they level of living.
It is amazing to see what education have not don to the people that prefer to live like this, no job no future nowhere to stay, I wonder if they are happy with them selfs no rent no Tax to pay no expenses no obligation to other people no responsibility, maybe it is heaven to live like that but after a great summer come a long cold winter where I would like to sleep in a bed, not in a doorway on the street, but then I am normal and I like to pay my Tax and rent so I can sleep well.
The thing that I can not get over, the homeless still collect money from the Government still collect the drugs for them to sell on the street and have time to rope the local dairy for cigarettes, I must admit a busy lifestyle.
The Impact of Computers on Schools:
According to Healy, misuses of technology are the result of society’s willingness to embrace it blindly. She questions the impact that computers may have on children’s health, creativity, brain development, and social and emotional growth and emphasizes the following facts: the American Academy of Pediatrics has expressed concern about the amount of time children spend in front of various types of screens, and several experts in eye development have stated that computer use is creating problems in children’s developing visual systems. Healy relates her observations of classrooms, labs, and homes across America and expresses concern that “While some very exciting and potentially valuable things are happening between children and computers, we are currently spending far too much money with too little thought. It is past time to pause, reflect, and ask some probing questions” These probing questions include: Are computers being used in age-appropriate ways? Do program designers take into account the developmental needs of children? Are teachers receiving sufficient technology training? Is “learning software” really what it purports to be, or is it simply “edutainment” that reinforces impulsive point-and-click behavior in the pursuit of a trivial goal?

How difficult can it bee to teach kids to learn to do well in school.
One reason they don’t take school seriously
Teachers today are not like teachers from way back I hope I am wrong but something has gone wrong here. kids today that entering high school are belove national standard and there is finger pointing at teachers. The standards, in which teachers are using to rank children from well below to above , were widely criticised but are now been used in all schools.
Teaching student ‘s grades lag behind and the reason for that there could be an immediate negative effect of enrolment’s from groups like Maori, Pacific or student’s from lower income backgrounds. We need good teachers that can lift our school system up where it should be with great result, not pampering our kids telling them there are no losers we are all winners what is just wrong.
Here is Quote from the Dean of Education(we don’t want people with high-grade point we want warm positively determined people)
Here is another Quote
from the Minister of Education(in government there are always a choice between measuring things and investing in things know to make a difference ” in this case, I prefer to invest)
Why invest in something that does not work.
