    Yes. When drunk dad walks out and leaves mom living in the car with 5 kids.....lice is not the priority. Actually getting the kids back to school so she can work her lousy minimum wage job is what she needs. Does that sound like a person who wants to perpetuate the cycle of lice?? I taught long enough to see these tragic situations. Judgment is not kind or helpful.

    Yes. Actually a good clean scalp is just what they want. If you don't get them then chances are you may be dirtier than the people with them. Just saying.

    Getting rid of them is no easy task. Some people don't have the knowledge to understand that it isn't just about hair. The whole environment needs to be addressed. Some kids live in cars and getting rid of them is nearly impossible. Let's not assume that they can't be bothered and judge. I have had it twice in my house and never from contact with dirty kids. It happens. When I taught they could be in school with nits but not live ones. The removal process is TEDIOUS and has to be done by hand. The stuff you buy in the store is crap that dries the scalp and makes you then appear to have tons of nits.

    I got notification that a reply I made quite awhile was deleted. If there is going to be scrutiny and censorship that requires digging and nit picking then I have no use for this place. Truly it is a pro Christian board.

  6. While I am late in this I will add my two cents. CC is a rip off. Get yourself the app and the books "What you need to know about _____ homework" and that covers Foundations. LITERALLY word for word and in order. I truly think they stole their content from these books. Also, As an atheist, I am excluded from tutoring even though some of the tutors they hire suck but meet their "standards". They also discriminate. If you do not have ALL of your kids in their program you cannot tutor. So essentially you must drink the Koolaid if you want in. I am staying this year because my friend is the Foundations director. I will not go again EVER. The Challenge programs box the kids in so much that there is little time for any other real literature that truly grabs them. Sorry is this sounds bitter but I really feel like I wasted my money this year on what others have correctly referred to as a fad. It could be a good program but it is the most poorly run company out there. They have no control over what goes on. We have one of the main people in a campus near us(friends with Leigh) and they live above the law and do as they please.

    Ask an atheist

    Prime example. We are backstage at a dance recital and two super religious girls decide what a great idea it would be to all join hands and do a prayer circle. So they start "lord, jesus christ, bless us this day......." Okay now wait. First they are assuming that everyone there believes in both without asking. Why? Because they have been trained to believe that they are right and everyone MUST believe the way they do. Did they even pause to try and make it general? No. My girls just rolled their eyes. Anyone not christian would be offended by this and I was. It was not a religious venue or event. Keep it to yourself.

  14. Yes. With kale on the hook
  15. I agree with Bill that some of the book choices are just absurd. Really quite useless in terms of life today. Like Moby Dick. Would be great to say you have read it but...why? So you can discuss it over lunch? Most people haven't read it because it really is boring, long, and tedious. Sometimes the idea of the perfect education is not what the kids will like. Just my 2 cents
