We have folks apply all the time that say they have a high school diploma, but when you look at how they fill out the application, it is clear that they are borderline (at best) illiterate.
It's really sad.
Perhaps they are lying and do not have a diploma. We don't require a copy. :lol:...

Pay them better and then have some sort of 401K plan with perhaps a match.
Get rid of pensions...or at least modify it so that it makes sense financially.

Much higher (no pun intended).

Of course, since I lived in Natchitoches Parish not far from NSU's campus ... it was nice to get out of the house.
Had to give up sports, though ... but, I knew by 10th grade that the NFL would not come callin'. :wah:

Do a quick google search and look up Governor John Kasich's (R-OH) comments on the matter.
He laid it out quite nicely this past weekend on FNS.
And then also look at the post by Wee Ice Mon.
I prefer that this be handled at the local level.
Common Core sucks....

Adjective used simply because they were born here.
Most liberals would probably hate that adjective.
