Learning Assistance Program (LAP)

We received the following from the Wilkes-Barre Area School District...

Title I students, you ask?

What is Title I?
Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) provides financial assistance to states and school districts to meet the needs of educationally at-risk students. The goal of Title I is to provide extra instructional services and activities which support students identified as failing or most at risk of failing the state’s challenging performance standards in mathematics, reading, and writing. 

What will Title I do for my child?

The Title I program will provide your student with extra educational assistance beyond the regular classroom. 

Which schools does Title I Serve?

The program serves students in elementary and secondary (middle and high) schools who have demonstrated that extra assistance is needed. Title I also serves students who attend private schools. 


First problem...this is a great example of the Fedrule Govmint overtaxing us, and then giving us back a pittance of our own money, but with strings attached.

Secondly...this is an added expense above and beyond the prohibitive amounts of money and resources being dumped into the bottomless education pit.

Thirdly...despite property taxes being increased every year, this is the school district teaching participating parents how to educate their own children, since the school district is obviously failing to do so.

Lastly...if educators were buckling down on reading, writing and arithmetic rather than teaching to tests, or teaching how to rubberize a vegetable, perhaps Facebook wouldn't be revealing that our younger folk are basically illiterate.

Make sure you register for the grand prize---a Kindle.

Because, as we all know, every child that cannot read should have a Kindle. (?)

Nucking futs!
