Schools funding the concern and overwhelmed after drinking

Many schools along with Oklahoma has funding problems.
In that is a concern from many corporations that the kids coming
out of High School will not make it through college.
Having no job skills, making a unhireable labor force.

The term is "Trailer park job candidates" 
(Talking about the group as a whole not the individual person.)
and so is the point is about the funding. Education cost money and 
so you have less funding, is like your education being worth the paper
it's printed on. Now like the books for schools being duct taped
together. The paper is duct taped! Just try to get a job with
duct tape holding together your resume. And so comes the 
point of going to a JR college to pick up their loss but with
the cost and time of doing so. A delay in the future labor force
that many businesses do not want!

To me the line has been crossed a long time ago. Schools are not able
to get their kids out in the markets because of the lack of for their kids.
Low funding makes low kids. Even I had a hard time when I popped
out of High School going to college. My college instructor talking
about how Hoover wore a red dress and so the Coolidge effect. 
No one told me Calvin Coolidge was a perv! I realized I was not in reality
in college and had to work harder to get brought up in college. 
I had a hard time in the 80's so how do you think it is now with so much 
less funding now than ever? Bad! Give we did not have the internet
like we have now but also now is the point of the time to learn things online
like the Old Oklahoma question "How do you know if you don't know."
You can't find it well if you don't know what you are trying to find and so
there is not enough time in the world to do so!

So the line being crossed pushes more and more states striking for better
funding. Oklahoma also has nabobs wanting to cut the taxes that is
meant to fund schools. So in that they want the kids to not be up to speed
when they get out of High School. More of a sadomasochistic Republican
thing is all I can say. Why make it hard to hire people for the job by cutting
the funding of what you will get?

What will we all get with cuts to education?

~~~~~Famous Russian painting of Ivan the Terrible 'seriously damaged' in pole attack
In a video released by the interior ministry, the unnamed suspect appears to confess, 
saying he went to see the painting before drinking vodka and becoming 
“overwhelmed by something”. Some Russian media cited him as saying he had 
attacked the painting because he thought its depiction of Russian history was inaccurate.

~~~~~I work at one of America's underfunded schools. It's falling apart
In my Oklahoma high school classroom, it is not easy to tell where federal funding ends and state funding begins – in fact, most teachers don’t have a clue about where our funding comes from. But what is abundantly clear is that our schools need more funding.

Unless you are in a school every day, you might not see the results of underfunding education. That is because we open our doors no matter what, and my colleagues and I will do everything we can to make sure our students get the education they deserve. But just because the consequences are invisible doesn’t mean there isn’t a problem. Isn’t that the definition of privilege? Thinking something isn’t a problem simply because it might not be a problem for you?

You have probably heard about the recent teacher walkout in Oklahoma. While some of that was about teacher salaries, it was more about the conditions in our schools – conditions that resulted from years of underfunding education.

The Oklahoma City public schools district is the largest in the state, serving about 46,000 students. Because of relentless decreases in funding from the Oklahoma legislature, our district has had to cut almost $40m in the past two years. This has resulted in our fine arts budgets being slashed by 50%, our library media budgets being completely eliminated and district officials being forced to end the school year days early.

Our school system also has 58 classrooms that are “split-level”. This means a teacher is required to teach two different curricula to two different grade levels at the same time in the same classroom. And our teachers do this without the help of a teaching assistant.

Cuts would make it impossible to retain qualified teachers instead of losing them at the rate of almost 400 per month. If there are cuts to federal programs for low-income students or students with disabilities, what else will my school have to sacrifice to provide the services they need? How will these cuts help students graduate and take on the world?

~~~~~Students are being prepared for jobs that no longer exist. Here's how that could change. Critics say high schools aren’t doing enough to prepare young people for life after graduation, in-demand jobs and a pathway to the middle class. Underscoring the criticism are sobering statistics: Nationally, just 25 percent of high school seniors are able to do grade-level math and just 37 percent score proficient in reading. Those numbers are egregiously lower among African-American and Hispanic students. And while 93 percent of middle school students say they plan to attend college, only 26 percent go on to graduate from college within six years of enrolling. These indicators, coupled with the staggering cost of higher education and millions of unfilled jobs in skilled trades, are pushing policymakers to rethink America’s bachelor’s-or-bust mentality.

Though the mere mention of college depresses her, Amber knows she will eventually need more education after high school. Workers with bachelor’s degrees now outnumber workers with high-school diplomas, according to a report by the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce. Even when hiring workers without a bachelor's degree, employers still look for more than a high school diploma, increasingly favoring those who have an associate degree or some college training. American high schools need to do more to educate young people about careers that require two-year degrees or certifications, rather than primarily promoting expensive bachelor’s degrees, say some experts.
