Uncle Rico, my apologies for the delay in replying. I work for a living, so I kind of have to wait until after CoB to get to things I enjoy, such as humoring you by responding. Let me start off by commenting on the homosexual swipe. Very mature for a fifth grader. Clearly your DCIAA education molded a truly mature human being.
On to substance, here goes: 1. I’m not going to waste my time by meeting you face to face. You summed up the high point of your life in another post by stating you were a DCIAA QB and that is clearly as far as you have gone. And, unless your last name is Leftwich, I’m not wasting my time meeting a DCIAA QB. Also any 3rd grader knows not to meet someone they meet over the internet. By announcing to the world you want to meet shows you are not only a moron but also a potential rapist. 2. I have stated that I am not a former employee of FCA. I am someone who, as an employee of a non-profit in the district, sought to help FCA athletics and academics, albeit not for football. The, school from an academic perspective, was then and remains a train-wreck. I pointed out the numbers in previous posts, dont need to rehash them. You can call me biased. You can call me a "hater." You can say I have a bone to pick w the school. All of these accusations are irrelevant. The truth is in the numbers, and the numbers prove one thing: the school is a sham academically. Again, I have pointed that out in previous posts. But again, go KIMA!
Moving on, BigGame, I appreciate your point and I wish you were right. (Before I get in to why you are wrong, just a heads up, you meant to say, “scorned,” just to let you know). But, unfortunately you aren’t correct. The org for which I worked didn’t come in and look to take over ops or anything of the sort. We simply sought to examine the situation at the school and see if we wished to support it, like we did w many schools in DC. And I, along with a number of other people, realized that FCA was such a massive dumpster fire of a school that we would be better served throwing lighter fluid on a pile of cash and throwing a match on than actually supporting the institution in any way, shape, or form. It had nothing to do with control as you implied, it had more to do with spending money with schools that were worth spending from an academic perspective. And, I think we all could agree that when considering academics, one might be better served supporting school such as KIPP, Banneker, SWW, or Chavez.
Moving on, BigGame, your other analogy is wholly inaccurate. If FCA were a mainstream PS their test scores would be acceptable, even something to celebrate. As they would be required to accept anyone and everyone, if one looks at their numbers, they would appear to be pretty damned impressive. But, they are a public charter school, not a mainstream public school. They don’t have to take anyone and everyone. They can, to an extent, pick and choose. So their laughable test scores are pitiful. And if they were a mainstream PS, the fact that test scores have gone down might be acceptable. But again we are talking about a charter school. Their mission is to improve the academic standing of their students. FCA actually seems to be making their students dumber. I must admit that is impressive, albeit in a depressing way. I hate to use capital letters to emphasize a point, but here goes, FCA IS SHORT-CHANGING THEIR STUDENTS. I don’t care about their football program. That is irrelevant to me. Way to outscore overmatched opponents, now how about you try and match that same success in the classroom?
By the way, nice little play on words there, DCJOKE. Hope you didn’t spend too much time working the drive-thru thinking of that one. Clearly, based upon your little joke there you are one of those kids you described who entered HS at a second grade reading level. Also, just so you know, it is spelled “truly,” not “truely.” MS2010 actually corrects that which leads me to believe that you are so dumb your computer just lets your mistakes slide. Anyway, good talk.
Now, back to you Uncle Rico. As to your last point regarding what a "real man" would do, well, I know this, a real man wouldn’t use the term '"LOL" in any form of conversation. Keep on using it though friend. I have met some people who use that term in written word. Most of them are my co-workers kids. But that explains why you use the term, as I personally believe your education ended right around when you were 14.
Any who, all of the information I provided in previous posts regarding FCA were true. I do look forward to hear your continued half-cocked responses though. But please, continue to kick and scream and pretend that FCA is the Oxford (look it up, it is a school you aren’t even qualified to be a janitor at) of DC.
Finally Rico, if you are serious about meeting, Ill be down in DC in Apr. Ill be on 395 probably around noon on the 22nd, I assume I will pass by you picking up trash on the side of the road. When I see the most inbred looking moron in a florescent vest, Ill slow down long enough to wave and say hi. So, long and short looking forward to that meet.
Realize this post was a bit lengthy. My apologies to all who felt it was too long. But hope you at least enjoyed it.
Now, back to the point of the post. FCA, while good, is still a bit overrated. But, I look forward to see them play Manatee. Should be a solid game.
