Just before the big east Henrietta braids like over -- Deal didn't commit and I was in the middle -- men and I'd just -- I would still less blame and probably know. No no no quicker than like ten seconds -- actually saloons. Well some days but he hit the windchill at my front windshield myself windshield and the like. I -- state it was so quick that I didn't even notice anything's coming I mean I'm -- -- switched laying boom there I just. I don't I don't -- -- -- anything menaces like the craziest part like they're just. I think we're ready to break let him do not and I kinda does Clint Stovall looked out my whole wind should just. Completely torn up. Millions of good and we've got a picture from him to his amazing Villa they make kids held on them you hit him right -- when it went in right in his say yeah. Billionaires who went through the windshield was right there a lot that picture up on our FaceBook page the -- FaceBook page. Yup and you can go check it out there -- just check go break room FaceBook do little search if we're not done. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And it just made me laugh because up prior all the events of yesterday. I'm on demand we had talked all about this common core and the test that the kids grades three to greater haven't. And adjust the the amount of anxiety that's going on within Kingston and was just funny even see my kids in the key policy have truth you go to bed early. And our rule art teacher told us to have our favorite breakfast. Israeli left. So Illinois don't even have a great breakfast or no one's favorite favorite breakfasts is always going to be your last meal if you go to the bush share. Guess the only only thing that and then only just adds to the stress -- -- to be like -- -- boy these teachers must be really freaked out about these tests and and that's adrenaline now again you know us to think that gene is on the line and she wants to talk about up opting out of the test which was all do you think you machines well. I think there's doubt most people if you don't have kids of your grandkids are her niece or nephew. The one thing you're seeing most places is that parents are opting their kids out and some of the parent parents. Happy to be teachers as we get a call here yesterday from ladies and I want Bob my kid out. Blood there tell me I'm gonna lose my teaching license of I go through that Jeanne what are wanna say about -- -- the test. Well you know I see everywhere apparent to bitching about this state maintain it mandated -- statement. -- and great and believe me he's taken that. I mean -- consider then there that let Nick -- opt out of the -- -- that they're they're part of the problem with our society. -- mean. Well I mean patent case not take the test because of -- and I see actual B yes. I think it did it it's just -- while protecting the -- -- -- -- second deal. It did it and what you're saying now that the -- that test is. The kids haven't even learned some of the stuff that's on the tests that seems ridiculous while -- -- would you give it has since at the -- haven't talked to a child what it was a planet that how they instant -- I would even challenge -- what you just said. Because you're saying like this is the problem in and basically uses the coddling you know the the new generation. I do my thing is I think it actually takes bigger balls to opt out because those of the parents that are the ones that are more involved. And there and their pay attention those are probably your better kids put its gonna take some Boston forget. The teachers are a little bit stressed about this test or -- completely freaked out but they're so more on this scale. And you know they're gonna be annoyed with the kid in the you know the kids got to sit there and say I'm not take us that takes some balls to me that's the tougher thing to do in this situation not not what -- saying there. Really yes and I. I heard a guy and he -- it -- to opt out are saying hey you know what I know. Where'd you shot your kids -- camps junior lives touched on the path to college or your career rip are ready next. What is different now. Why don't think they're afraid of NIC I think the parents that are three Titanic rare because that's a greater. That -- women -- -- -- I -- -- -- -- career as they're in third grade your career all of these are supposed to be in the here's the -- of those that in this goes to I think the most people but I don't know about but common core itself. Is about practical application. Rumor was supposed to be that way you could practically a life so when you're doing like math and if the light pole is sitting at the corner of main in states that negative of their -- there I and the guide wire comes down. On at a 45 degree angle one angle is the poll. It's practical application so you could go right to your genders and ministry -- finance and patients. Right right to your job or write or or better prepared for college is the thinking of the gift or great I I got my my thing is simply is not so much that. The parents -- opt in the kids out. Are probably kids that are doing well in school I would even bent on average the parents that are opted out have students that are on. Now an eight or be in the class and they're gonna have a successful college career or whatever they decide to deal. I think the pussy thing to do is in a way to force the kids to take the test. I. -- a rough but it's a -- of high stakes you console you'll what are you deal. The -- are true. All you're an electrician Bogut but what I meant was rule what do you do what do you do go to can't go wrong line and Internet and I had -- I like I guess I'd throw it oh yeah -- let let's go with that okay anomaly here here's a -- Tommy said that some of the stuff these kids are being tested on. Isn't even there people are sweat -- because they think it's going to be involved in the placement of their kid next year. And it also has been as slick as it's not fair to the teachers and they had so much testing that they couldn't get to all the material so some of the stuff so take about yourself. Let's say an electrician they change building codes right so now yeah -- and and you build an you're gonna do a project in the city and all of us and no one told you the -- when coach came through. So negative go back there and ripped out all the wire and stuff that you wouldn't matter right but you know how to do it. -- -- It's sort of happened what do you mean you are I know -- -- where they change a coach. -- building inspector may get redo. In the decoded Josh just change the best and that really like our allies of the code. Just changed did you know it and see you do it you do a long way and it's wrong bullets -- that would these kids this -- is -- get intestinal material that hasn't even been been covered and you know that's a great example to use. But since he said why some what do you deal. And as they like to think for yourself if you -- go into a job today in the or something new with the job that you hadn't been taught her team did test an honor anything. Yes I did see it. Carl. So much like on your head. What might my kid that is like -- 98 average and man Greg he could really do they don't mr. -- My good he could and he may never know what he got. As a Cecile tests and -- have to be a resented being studied could be. Yes well I mean our course and didn't well think about what that would do get based teacher's -- tell them how important based tests are. Instead added teachers in camp you know you make sure you -- -- good actually writing a -- -- the remarkable. -- to -- to protest -- Are there and it makes sense to me what's really Danielle. Did you -- just flaky -- and you know and now I know really. I'm in because it's so cute how important education is. Pat and I -- -- he's got to learn how to take -- an important part of bit. -- -- -- -- -- -- if they're -- more soft that they hadn't even covering collapsed. And a teacher did you tell him look how important this -- just I. Now wider Frerotte who's a teacher text me yesterday can go in they have to a stress of the kids how not take this test seriously. So you do that. If you give -- -- never I don't remember any tests not be taken seriously as a kid I remember ever -- -- this series and I tell you that doesn't need to be set and that's kind of what you cannot stand yeah like that is it's that all this one they're saying take more seriously because. My jobs is stake. Zero stand by my jobs from any thing yet. And I don't know if you teach for the ball -- not sugars in Rochester agrees -- genes sugar. Well. It shouldn't. It. I mean are you opt out of -- they know it. The white. Padilla and I don't I don't think these I really don't think that that's the -- are more I don't. Like Schneider I really think the parents that are opting the kids out. Are the ones of telling you that are tuned in in these kids aren't and I would love to to see a stat. My son has an eight blocks in man made it. Okay and my kid is go has had. Practice on the computer every night and he's getting all stressed out about it -- getting all worked up about it. And he can't get it right and we didn't learn this yet and I don't know what bottom line I get a get a good night's sleep and I gotta have my favorite yeah I can see -- -- cannot teach economic life there is no way -- stretch and honey you are stretching for just don't ask you district is like desert CJ kinesis would you assess. We can't show you that you should articulate little let's sort it. Don't worry about my gosh data exactly that are. So personally. I can't hear that but I look better bet -- that. Virtual characters -- little circle. This. -- that you can go to that restaurant that much -- I don't. Cuba saying he should now -- -- split you out there that they have little hurt my. Daughter last night. Blue on the -- -- out of -- It took me. That just do. What problem here and I had little literature third. I'm more power and you're going to be triple -- -- you know you. The way either teaching in these different in the way you've learned so well what are they in school Tony's back and is so wrong so I have a friend. Who are old news of very successful businessman and his wife is a certified teacher through the they've been trying to help their third grader with -- and down and they can't or they can't do it figures are good are they can come up with the same answer the most money does not all right because they're -- -- -- in the way that Jay is trying to say. Sound step penalties I just -- the -- you know I always -- three so this couple who are -- noon and again I'm Donny is successful business guy and they hired a tutor while to try to help the daughter as expensive they hired to choosing a hundred bucks an hour for a tutor so. -- shot and don't pay attention to potential problem really is we are export or worse yet. Story -- Laporte when your. Chinese. Rational thought that is -- you're supposed to do it that way they wanna see your work they wanna make sure you understand it. Future approach this year and -- and pitchers -- You know I don't know I think it was such a hard time. What are you ought to do what we are there. But the futures shot when they actually -- there -- actual connect all the showed up. I Carol -- -- every Circuit Court order backlog. -- to -- -- -- -- -- would -- -- the writers strong variety got to Charlotte the airport. Stopped yet. Or are there. To show about a the great great -- all valid questions. When a new governor comes in this whole common core probably be out probably be out -- -- get Dave his wife teaches special led -- wanna say Dave. Yeah MI HBO but. Lot of these pages directories and disgust but you know right to admire what it teaches special reading at grade level reading. Yeah. -- a few years. And I did get every. And -- UT's college solo reading. Their -- time and now you read everything. Sooner especially once the literate people we probably in this building for a real war in terms of what you read. Seventy's -- rhetoric that so that's outside a couple. Don't even write decent bit future net you been in LA hey -- social studies or science. Can. Isolation is based on how these chips. Are you most that's at least teachers are to -- At least it's more yeah. Yeah you're right at the same thing I don't understand these boxes put numbers pretty adding that dug out and buying -- but I saw I saw it actually might not the other way in my -- -- that's the right. Not the right way he's I -- right. That's -- Oh that's so different and David -- you want parents involved but I -- but I was -- million years -- -- right so -- and his new way this new common cordon that supposed to get us in touch with the -- the world and -- Norway Finland is the woman has the best school system and they don't have any of this -- set -- -- -- -- Like this can -- I do go I don't Jennifer this is did you try to work. Bench already got the latest -- that's volatile nature does it spoke to tomorrow it certain that -- -- launched or -- person. Yeah but see here's the problem they've. Is that at the state level they have this thing call eight PP ER which tells us is the evaluation of the teachers. So the teachers have to prove that they taught it that way the kids have to demonstrate that they -- -- that Lleyton in the teachers graded on how the kid does. So it anywhere you're talking about your wife is sort of depend on how the honest I don't know of yeah you kind of got to stick to the way it is or else people are gonna be evaluated pour -- -- on sand. Well I. Ask for joining us now because you wanna be a good parent healthy kidney can't stand LA that's they're nothing like -- Absolutely. So so now do. A lot of -- -- argued. Yeah and it's not a and I got. Up to. Giving Ramallah -- and I do appreciate all. Sugar you're there call back -- or her gesture to test prior to -- fire back at night I told. Well sugar call up and said that she thinks opting out is is also teaching the kids you cannot satellite tonight I disagree I actually think -- you did this right is apparent duties and have a backbone and say this is wrong and I'm not gonna accept it. I'm still gonna work hard I'm still gonna have the proverbial fire in my belly and do well and I'm not connected it that this is wrong on so many levels I don't think that this is their kid. Getting a chance to opt -- -- life I really don't and that's what she was saying terrorism when this sugar -- -- -- ABC courtesy call their share -- I don't think she -- -- -- -- she's totally user's own children collision bowls and big name. Militia doing mental issues. -- she's a horse now there's a debate or like a stripper on tonight and and that history sugar to see you again. There are certain -- her tonight and did you think -- shooters a war. -- -- or name in a out of shape and anti war. What do you wanna say about the the -- -- testing this week is language next few week is math for kids' great great part of the console war -- has students tricks. And bubbles only has to know if her like how do what I do and when that -- what USA mint. Well my spitting it at one point political beat -- they would steal. The pact yet and if Beckett taking those questions to -- -- -- wrong it would throw the question now. And it too many of them got it right they would build a question now it it basically it got to a certain number of hit the ask. And there are certain number -- I don't need cash and now I'm not sure about the current job but -- yeah that would be operating procedure or old. Yeah -- you might be right on that I've heard does similar things that this one is different now because who do they have tested the beginning of the year to see where the kids Iraq. These test now you have to show incremental growth and so 20% of teachers are valuations is on the test is beginning year 40% is on these test here wasn't a group so 60% of the teacher's evaluation has nothing to do with their instructing in the classroom put just tell the kids performing these tests. That's why I think there's so much pressure and it seems a little unfair. Let's get -- got sugar guy had not us I'm gonna push back to -- on dislike you speak. It can be that we can get -- -- When. Are you are. -- market what are date and that art. We do the best that we can compete. What -- -- because we tell. Got a kick out. What we are waking up and -- actually. -- -- that's really I'm gonna valuation that. I don't know but I'm saying I I don't think anybody disagrees that he should know this -- is doing her job and have a desist has really accomplish that. Or is it a huge waste -- time. Okay now is that really giving you any kind of read on how your kids doing legitimately right. Why do you think legitimately expect. Isolate bill explain it then is that these some of -- stuff to these kids are being tested on they haven't even learned yet. What's the point of that. Are you are what you are watching -- and yes. Yet. Everything on your gonna what duck like back to try to be more and you got a -- where you and I. He's been to my -- is how can you tell us a job on things they haven't learned Jesse saint showed her put her answers every day you're out to your -- algebra should. -- -- I. Think we did not speak what are. I don't pay at -- -- did you think when they're -- here let me jump in here on a few points. Bullets are -- want him not because there's so much testing there were two weeks of the -- at the beginning of the -- -- -- -- weeks you're getting ready for these tests as per the state. That's why there has it been I don't instruction time in the classroom okay. And this is new. And the schools haven't figured out how to even implemented properly is part of their -- and that's number one number two sugar as you say New York State is bad okay. What -- more and -- behind Europe we got. -- went number one in in the world and education does none of that we should do that none of which are really not on the hey I gotta put -- halt because you're not that you gotta let me talk. And the other thing to your point. What is she said something about all New York State -- down. The city school district is an -- and mass Malik Evans should be embarrassed when we get -- should be embarrassed because kids should have a 50000 word vocabulary but third rate but he he allows. The school to keep cutting. Cutting cutting so they cut pre K that is Carl LeBron is a word that's all that's up so. That's part of our system do you what else is part of New York State system. Right and one of the top schools in the country -- for one stop schools instead you what's gonna happen when these tests come through. Their scores are gonna drop does that mean that they have more students -- worst teachers because they had a 90% graduation rate a lot of these kids gonna have great success -- and -- are some of the top schools in the country so are these tests indicative that they that they -- The answers -- this system is flawed it's screwed up and I'm sorry I don't just disagree with you I say you're wrong we're gonna take breaks on numbers 2226002. The break room is on 965. The BC MS.
