Normally tranquil Jonesboro was rocked in the first minutes of Mother's Day when gunfire erupted at a private party in a popular downtown venue. Two suspects are in custody, accused of killing one person and wounding six others when they fired into the crowd.

OMG never realized that them there schools with high free lunch counts , perhaps , or even possibly , once were breeding grounds for criminals. I have no information to confirm or dispute whether the great neurosurgeon Ben Carson [ his service to children is highly saluted] might have grown up around , perhaps, or possibly, being once an elementary student.

yet I do know that before the universe was created , the plan set in motion for these individuals is already set. That of course gets into omniscience and omnipotence or just made up stuff, and/or a mystery that some are of course through voices in their head know knowing thoughts.

I do agree we need more people in the trades. As they say a blind swine can once in a while find a thought.

Not much to disagree with here. The Little Rock School District, which poormouths itself at every opportunity and says its roofs leak because it has no money, is a wealthy school district that spends more per pupil than any other district. It just doesn't spend it on the pupils. I've always wanted to see a statistic that tells me how many state prison inmates at any given time first went through a Little Rock school. Stat would be damning. One of the tenets of the KIP program (Knowledge is Power) is that longer school days and longer school weeks (Saturday classes for those not performing at grade level) has the benefit of keeping the children away from what's holding them back: Home.

Mr. Kelley is remiss in failing to mention whether the phenomenon of minority children refusing to learn in school so as to not “act white” plays a role in schools producing illiterate graduates. The phenomenon is discussed in Stuart Buck, Acting White: The Ironic Legacy of Desegregation (New Haven, Ct.: Yale University Press, 2010).
