Bully Pulpit

The term "bully pulpit" stems from President Theodore Roosevelt's reference to the White House as a "bully pulpit," meaning a terrific platform from which to persuasively advocate an agenda. Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

Re: Re: Public School Bashing

Wow, Tucker! My sentiments exactly. Of course, that should come as no surprise, huh?

It is a students responsibility to take what is given to them in school and apply it. Ask for more when you feel you aren't getting it!! Parents should be asking for more! No school can meet every individual need. It is impossible.

My junior year in high school, some students who wanted to apply to NC State were disappointed that physics was not a part of the currriculum at North. They went to David Parker who in turned, went to the school board and requested to teach the class the next year. Would you believe he taught physics to two students our senior year and it was all because the students insisted on what they needed, and the teacher listened and took initiative.
