School

NEW YORK'S SCHOOL SPENDING IS NOW 90 PERCENT ABOVE THE NATIONAL AVERAGE

New York spent $22,366 per pupil at its public schools in 2016 -- 90 percent above the national average, the U.S. Census Bureau said Monday.
By Joseph Spector, Gannett Albany bureau chief
ALBANY -- New York spent $22,366 per pupil at its public schools in 2016 -- 90 percent above the national average, the U.S. Census Bureau said Monday.
New York's spending on its schools per pupil has long led the nation, and the gap continues to grow as the state has increased aid to schools by 36 percent since 2012.
The average spending for all 50 states and the District of Columbia increased by 3.2 percent to $11,762 during the 2016 fiscal year, the Census Bureau said.
For New York, overall spending increased 5.5 percent between 2015 and 2016 and grew 14 percent since 2012 -- when it was $19,076. https://www.wgrz.com/mobile/article/news/education/new-yorks-school-spending-is-now-90-percent-above-the-national-average/71-556703967


The 50 Upstate NY school districts that pay teachers the most, ranked for 2018 

[>>average teacher salary in the state is $52,537, about 12% higher than the national average.<<]


Four-day weeks bring smiles in rural schools. But will they work in big cities?

Increasingly, school districts across the country are banking on the short week to save money and alleviate the worsening teacher shortage. Three-day weekends are a nice recruiting tool.

Lower Drug Prices

 

President Donald J. Trump’s Blueprint To Lower Drug Prices

Issued on:


A BURDEN ON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE: Drug prices are being driven up unfairly, taking a toll on the American people. 
  • Excessively high drug prices, foreign freeloading, and a system rigged to reward list price increases, are burdening the American people.
    • According to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the United States had the highest per-capita pharmaceutical spending in 2015.
  • Senior citizens pay more in Medicare Part B and Part D because government rules prevent health plans and vendors from negotiating the better deals seen in other markets.

Logan Act

Giuliani: ‘Nobody Seems to Care’ That Kerry is ‘Violating the Logan Act



BY:

President Donald Trump's top personal attorney Rudy Giuliani on Sunday said that "nobody seems to care" that former Secretary of State John Kerry  is ‘violating the Logan Act' by quietly trying to save the Iran nuclear deal.
Giuliani appeared on ABC's "This Week" where he was initially discussing Trump and what he knew about the $130,000 payment to adult film actress Stormy Daniels, but then pivoted and talked about how nobody seemed to care about Kerry violating the Logan Act, which prohibits American citizens from negotiating with foreign governments, including unauthorized members of Congress.

Escape from New York

800,000 people are about to flee New York and California because of taxes, say economists

  • 800,000 people will leave New York and California over the next three years due to the new tax bill, conservative economists Arthur Laffer and Stephen Moore said in an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal.
  • Other economists dispute this finding, say there is no connection between taxes and migration.
  • These economists claim high-tax states will likely generate more wealth than they lose.

GUNS

Green Beret Tim Kennedy had a message on Instagram Saturday about guns that all Americans should hear.
Kennedy posted several pictures showing people being brutalized by government forces from around the world and horrific images from the Holocaust. He captioned the photos with the powerful message:

This is why we need guns. Ask Hitler, Castro, Mao Tse-Tung, Stalin, Pol Pot, Idi Amin, or the countless others… if gun control worked for them.  Our forefathers did not have a glimpse into the future to know that the Second Amendment would have to protect the weapons we have today. But they did know that governments will always be overreaching. They wrote that beautiful constitution with the intent of limiting that power. We don’t need guns for hunting we need them for freedom.  Until you have been in a tyrannical, socialists, or anarchist country where violence and genocide can become the norm you can’t understand why we need guns.

Emulate

If you could move to the best country in the world
what would it be? And why? And why is it better than
the USA?
If you could emulate the USA what country would it be?
And if you are not there now, please leave, now! Go!
I bet you would choose a Socialist country in the EU.
The EU is where two world wars started.
Think about it. And the USA had to intervene.
Maybe even Cuba!
That is fine. Don't come back looking for help.
