Hey buddy that is ok because there is a millennium (1000 years) for you to get your act together so there is still hope for you and I will keep you in my prayers and who knows what our Father has in mind for you. You sure helped people on this board take a stand for what they believe and that is a good thing. For every positive there is a negative. You must have been working hard over the last few days and good to see you back up to speed. I do agree that the black race is lagging in the academic area and do have some effect on SAT and ACT scores but the main cause is taking God out of our society and schools and it is your "Choice" not to agree but it is too your loss.

Actually test scores are falling at private and religious based institutions as well.....nice try though. It is a choice whether or not one agrees with the information, but opinions have zero effect on fact.

To be more specific, it's a combination of the above AND the removal of corporal punishment from the school system. Simply put, spanking works better than prayer.

I don't know about corporal punishment being the cause. We lost corporal punishment while I was in junior high. If grades have been falling since the 1960s and corporal punishment was removed in the 1990s, then it can't be a lack of corporal punishment causing the lack of intelligence in the school system.

Reversely, I don't think it's the lack of prayer in school either. I've never been a devout Christian, but I'd consider myself a bright and intelligent person. I was a B+ average in high school and we never had prayer in school.

I still think parents need to take a more active role in their childrens' behavior and education.

Actually relgion causes people to be stupid. The more you learn about religion, the worse you are likely to score on left wing liberal tests.

I have done some work in and around Natchitoches I do not know the children but the area looks bleak not to say Shreveport is that hot on the west side but I would say that Bossier City is the best kept secret around for low crime good schools and good police and I am glad I live there. Oh and I know you would want to know there are many good Christian families living all around us and that my daughter goes to school with. Hope you having a great day buddy.

I haven't check it out personally, but my sister has seen many of the schools around Bossier City. Some aren't so bad and others, we'd rather avoid moving too close to. In all though, Bossier is in decent shape. I don't have any regrets in living here.

LOL I spent quite a few years living in Bossier City. Would have to say I had a blast doing it, as a matter of fact.. But to this day, you can tell when you've entered Bossier City, even with your eyes closed

Grew up in South Bossier, thinking and feeling like we OWNED the place

Currently living outside the shreveport city limits. And just loving it. Whether you are in shreveport or bossier, they both have some lovely spots.. and both have places I wouldn't want to be caught dead in.

Since when is being able to walk downtown at night without being shot by a criminal or harassed by a drunk gambler, bleak?

While I agree that Bossier City is miles above Shreveport, to compare either to Natchitoches is just ludicrous.

You are so right how could I ever compare Shreveport or Bossier to the back woods of Natchitoches ? Natchitoches does not even make the cut
Just some steel magnolias and old run down buildings and oh yes meat pies and old Christmas lights. What a grand place. Plenty of TT down there too I guess I should just compare Natchitoches to west Shreveport only and that would be a good grouping

We take pride in not being "up to par" with Shreveport. We didn't get to be the oldest permanent settlement in the entire Louisiana Purchase by accident ya know.

That would explain it. Glad you are there and we are up here. Could not think of a better situation. Time to punch in
