Our education system is in absolute shambles which is a direct result of liberal ideology infiltrating our schools. Kids can longer think and have become accustomed to memorizing worthless data.

Golly! Sounds like Conservatism to me...

Take an average student from the 50's and they would outclass most kids of today. Try to dismiss those test scores but you can't. Further they've dumbed down the questions on the SAT a couple of times that I'm aware of.

Frankly put the system is broken and the fact that we were once #1 and have fallen to #17 speaks volumes.

And of course the educational system functions totally independant of the greater society...

Rents are too damn high — and wages are too damn low.

The city’s escalating rents are eating away at as much as one-half of low-income New Yorkers’ paychecks, a new study has found.

Low-income tenants now fork over a whopping 49% of their pay to landlords, up from 45% six years ago, according to advocacy group Community Service Society.

Poor city residents are suffering the most: after they’ve paid their rent bills, they have a measly $4.40 per household member, per day, left over to pay for food, transportation and other essentials, the survey said.

“Rents have continued to escalate in good times and bad while employment and incomes have been falling off since 2008,” said Victor Bach, senior housing analyst at the Community Service Society.
