I heard all over the news today that the average household wealth for blacks is about $5,300 and for whites it is around $113,500. This is the highest wealth difference between blacks and whites ever. Is it time to increase affirmative action programs for blacks?

I also know parents that when they get home, sit in front of the computer.

"Is it any wonder we have so many problems with some kids now?"
They're crying for attention... Then we have the "helicopter" parents that monitor every child's activity.

Very true. I spent 9 yrs helping out in my DD's classrooms, the school library, etc. Her school - what's known as 'progressive education' - had special needs students in the 'regular' classrooms. I only remember hearing/seeing ONE incident in all the 9 yrs. and that was taken care of immediately & the middle-schooler was removed from the classroom. The parents then put him in a special needs program (he was was somewhere in the Autism spectrum & had a hard time controlling 'overload' & would act out).

In my DD's high school, they had a separate special needs program but they tried to include those kids in as many school activities as possible. It was great to see the 'normal' high schoolers be so protective of the special needs kids.

That looks like an ideal environment. I didn't see any mention of cost.

To Ohearto,
I'm still waiting for a response. You made an accusation toward me that painted me in a very bad light and I would really appreciate some type of explanation.

It was $66,000 for the tuition for day school, $78,800 for boarding.

Thank you. That eliminates many from this quality school.

Is there a means test for parents?
