Venting............................ smiley4.gif

You know what makes me mad??? Is the school system here in Dallas.......Alexis my 11 year old, has all pre-ap and Ap classes......However the school that she goes to does not have enough textbooks for all of the children, so she shares the textbooks for all her classes with her fellow classmates and cannot bring the books home for homework either........I'm so frusterated..I went to the OPEN house that the school held last week, I asked the teachers and staff, what can I do? Can I donate money to each individual classroom or the school so that we can fix this??? They shook their heads and simply said its a district wide problem.....What the ???? What also upset me is in her orchestra class, not but 2 parents decide to show up....I understand that parents have to work and put food on the table.......But these kids are going to be our future politicians, doctors, lawyers, and engineers.....It makes me upset that Dallas has more than enough money to help illegals who decide its better to have ten kids and sit around, not get a job, and live off of our tax dollars.... the system here is so screwed up. I"m thinking I might have to transfer her out of district in October.....The school itself has an awesome robotics division that won nationals last year, so initially I thought it was a good idea to have her attend that school........Now I'm not so sure smiley2.gif ......
