Today we'll make an exception.
This is life in a Cincinnati Public School ELEMENTARY school.
On a hot August day last summer, children from some of Cincinnati's poorest neighborhoods filed into the just-completed, $12.8 million Hays-Porter Elementary School for the first time.
Over the next two months, the luster tarnished quickly - and violently.
Documents recently obtained by The Enquirer tell a story of a school where fights landed at least one student in the hospital, while a slew of other incidents of intimidation and bullying led parents to repeatedly tell Cincinnati Public Schools administrators they feared for their children's safety.
Meanwhile, teachers were targets of student outbursts, and low-level misbehavior was ubiquitous, records say.
One student needed surgery to fix a "severe" eye injury after getting punched in the face during gym class, and another had "partial amputation of the fatty side of her finger" in a classroom incident.
A brawl erupted in the main office. Another student told a teacher, "Get the f - - - out of my face" before hitting her with a belt, and the student's punishment was never imposed, according to records.
By mid-October, CPS assigned a two-person security team full time.
There's a lot of people here to address so let's go through them one by one.
Are the citizen's served by this school republicans or democrats?
Is the school board made up of republicans or democrats?
Are the school administrators largely republicans or democrats?
Are the teachers largely republicans or democrats?
Are the parents of these "students" democrats or republicans?
Will the students themselves turn out to be a large republican or democratic voting bloc?
Here is the truth. You couldn't find a republican in this mess with a search warrant, a pack of blood hounds and Dog the Bounty Hunter.
This is a totally en capsuled life in an America run by democrats. It's been over a year since I made my initial challenge to "progressives" to give me an example of one thing run by "progressives" that is actually run better than anything run by conservatives. To date, NO ONE has been able to provide me with one place where life run by "progressives" is better than a place run by conservatives.
In fact, no place actually exists.
When will our elected conservative leaders point this out? When will "progressives" finally own that this is what life looks like in a welfare state?
I guess on the positive side, the children have a whole brand new school to tear up.
