they reject. If you are on the waitlist it means they would like to accept your child but don't have enough spaces. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Shut out of K admissions for anything we wanted. What is better? To go to PS6, and then try to apply out after 1 year, or to go to a school we don't really want and try to get out after one year? 15 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Go to 6. Do not spend money on a school you don't want just because it is private. Your kid will learn to read and do much more in public k than at any private. Apply out for the next year if you really want, or just wait until middle school. [ Reply | More ]

Last year, I received a deadline, which I believe was the same for everyone else who got an outright accept. However, I got off the wait list pretty quickly. I'm sure they give a deadline after the initial ISAAGNY deadline passes. However, it's probably expected that you get the contract in ASAP. [ Reply | More ]

exactly the same as now. the climate change movement is misguided. very few people understand computer models and most of these scientists are just joining the movement because not being a liberal in academia is a death sentence. originally there was debate on this and the people who didn't toe the line were fired. the UN guys and some other scientists saw they could get more notoriety and grant $ if they said there was warming. There hasn't been any warming for 25 years and so now NOAA threw all that data out and cherry picked less accurate surface temp and ocean temp readings (vs the satellite readings) so they (obama) could say things are getting hotter. the greed of the environmental posse is crazy and they are more than happy to dupe you.

I thought the purpose of the burkha was to not expose the wearer and to inhibit the expression individuality in order to channel attention to Allah. But when in a secular society the burkha would bring more attention to those wearing it and hence stripping its original purpose. [ Reply | More ]

There is something about my reaction to burkhas that bothers me, but I haven't quite nailed it down. It's something like- most western women visiting predominantly Muslim countries cover up out of respect for that country's culture, why can't Muslim women give a little when they come to this country and drop the burkha? I don't like this feeling because 1) although I am an atheist, I believe in religious freedom 2) things like yarmulkes (sp?) don't bother me as much (maybe because I also feel burkhas are misogynist, etc). I don't know...anyhow, I am very conflicted about this... [ Reply | More ]
