Yes, previous generations might not have, but today's kids DO. Old timers might be surprised to know how much kids are expected to already know before getting to Kindergarten. A kid that doesn't already know his alphabet, colors, numbers is already seriously behind.

So Dunn wants to compare his salaries to those in Loudoun, but doesn't want to compare Frederick county teacher salaries to Loudoun salaries. He picks and chooses facts that serve his narrative.

Great news! She has been a great addition to the school board- she regularly attends events at local schools and is very involved in the community. She will be a great choice for the Board of Supervisors. She has my vote!

[huh] My Word! The price of something has TRIPLED in SIXTY years! What a shock!

Has the price of a car not MORE than tripled? Houses? I'm sure people's average income has gone up too. Some people around here crack me up.

Where exactly were all the Snowden kids supposed to go to school? They need a school there. If you don't like the fact we needed a new school, complain to the supervisors who approved the housing, don't tax the houses enough, and don't charge developers enough.
