Yes several other programs were looking at him. But logically while qualified to play D1 he is not headed to the NFL. His education is what's important so we looked at all the Ivies. Penn Dartmouth and Princeton were the ones who recruited him starting this past late winter and into the spring. Came down to Dartmouth and Princeton and he chose Princeton. Now he just has to get his actual application in. He is a very very good student so passed the academic pre-read. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Why does Success Academy hate Brooklyn Prospect Charter School so much? Shouldn't all charter schools support one another? But anytime that someone praises Brooklyn Prospect because it is a charter school that does all the ethical things SA won't do, there is always some crazy pro-Success Academy person who posts that Brooklyn Prospect is a terrible school and kids aren't learning anything. It's not true, but of course, the test scores at Brooklyn Prospect, which keeps most of its students even if they struggle to learn, will never be as good as Success Academy's, where they are famous for getting rid of struggling students before testing years. That doesn't make Brooklyn Prospect a bad school -- it makes Brooklyn Prospect an HONEST school. 11 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

You set the rule and then nobody should need to tell anybody anything. Also sitter should be able to use some freaking judgment, which it sounds like she is not or there wouldn't be an issue. If she is doing a painting project with the kids and there is paint on the table that can be wiped up with a wet paper towel, babysitter should not leave that for the housekeeper. If there are crumbs on the floor after a meal, fine but if DB drops a piece of toast while eating, sitter needs to pick it up. [ Reply | More ]
