My oldest son is beginning middle school this year. I just got his schedule. He's NOT taking a science class!!!!! WHAT?!?!?! REALLY?!?!?!? You have GOT to be kidding me!!!! Science is the one subject that this kid enjoys. Besides, how the <insert expletive> are we supposed to compete in today's global world if our kids AREN'T LEARNING SCIENCE!!!!!! Sorry for all the shouting. I'm dumbfounded. He has time for Art, Band, and PE, but NO SCIENCE?????? I'm going to scream now. Loudly. Then I'm going to find the nearest teacher supply store and do what I do best. My kids will not suffer for the stupidity of their school district.
