Is somebody from Arkansas calling Nebraska backwards? :confused:

Methinks the Pot doth lash out against the Kettle.

My mom and dad and brother and sister went to a two room schoolhouse (different years) with a coal fired cast iron stove in the hallway between the classrooms....and they only had two teachers, a "fraidy hole" in the front yard and kerosene lamps and outdoor outhouses.....ya makin' fun of peeeples you old Phart?

My son and grandson think it's great! I'll bet they learn more than those high priced teachers can teach in those high priced schools

I'm just glad to hear that such places can still exist without the feds stickin their oar in (the oar that I paid for...against my will)

He'll most likely get a less PC education than at your typical Publik Screwl. He'll get the three R's instead of putting condoms on bananas. :D

At various times we played football, basketball and baseball against other schools, and the band competed during those times.....but you can bet your sweet patootie that all classes were proper classes and not BS to fill someone's schedule.

perhaps now I'll be qable to see if there's a difference between a liberal education and a real education

Sounds like my 1st School I attended in a rural valley here in NZ in the 60's.
