Court upholds Thiele Independence nomination

"ICE", just out of curiosity, what would you consider an "educator"? What would you categorize the work that guidance counselors do as? For example, during the months from October to let's say February, a guidance counselor has the very important and stressful job of advising senior students on college choices. These students rely on these educators for advice and expertise on the thousands of colleges available. When I went to college, I did not just open up a Princeton Review and pick the school with the best reviews, I met with my guidance counselors, numerous times, to ensure that I made the right choice.
I know that my comments relate very little to the article above and were written solely for your purposes, but I felt it necessary to intervene at such ignorant thoughts.
Secondly, as a member of an ivy league college admissions board, your opinions on regents diplomas are misinformed at best. I'm not really sure how you can justify applying yourself in high school, taking advanced placement classes, etc. as an "unnecessary burden". Taking higher level classes whether they are honors, AP, or IB will certainly add to a student's resume for college. Trying in high school WILL pay off. You can't settle when it comes to education. As for your friend, if they were such great students, why didn't they continue their education? Why didn't they get their PhD in history and teach at a University instead of a high school? Yes, your friend may have been cheated out of their future, but whose fault it that? They were the one's who settled and didn't continue education even though they had a great start in high school. What a pity." Aug 26, 10 8:15 PM

But why do you have so much time on your hands?" Sep 2, 10 8:20 PM

Sounds like I struck a nerve. And just because I have not been a member of this site for years doesn't mean my comments serve any less gravity or relevance than yours. I don't sit around my computer waiting for a response to one of my comments on here.Try getting a hobby other than the internet. And again, WHY do you have so much time on your hands???"
