How your sleep habits could affect your childrens' success in school
Proper nutrition and adequate sleep are the foundation upon which a good education are built. Kids whose parents fail to provide a stable home environment are at a profound disadvantage in the classroom. The other big thing that parents can do for their kids is to read with their kids on a daily basis. Twenty to thirty minutes of reading each day makes a huge difference.

Lifelong sports should be emphasized in public schools. Although there are a lot of scholarships given out for football and basketball, the percent of high school long distance athletes going to and graduating from college is much higher.

Student explores legal options after alleged body shaming :roll2:
The girl obviously is over-weight and the teacher probably should have toned it down a bit, but school dress codes are pretty subjective. If running to a lawyer over something as trivial as this isn't over-reacting, then I don't know what is!

desertrat: Let's face it, teenage girls tend to over-react to the slightest little thing. Most of them tend to be drama queens and want to turn any little thing into a big deal. That said, the teacher could have handled the situation a little better if we are to believe the details provided in this report, but the teacher wasn't at all out of line and was just doing his or her job.
