The Subject: A Brooklyn highschool educating its juniors classes on “Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

New York Metropolis’s public colleges have sadly devolved right into a union of overpaid sycophants and sinecures (“Bear’ly studying,” Nov. 20).

Solely when mother and father demand that the left’s chains of mediocrity and indoctrination — which have strangled significant studying for too lengthy — be damaged can any actual schooling resume.

However nobody must be holding their breath. For town’s mother and father wanting a stable and aggressive schooling for his or her kids, there appears however one recourse: Get outta city!

The usage of “Goldilocks and the Three Bears” in an Eleventh-grade class at Edward R. Murrow HS is simply the most recent instance of the sort of academic fraud being perpetrated by too lots of our public excessive colleges.

The try by somebody within the college to state that that is an instance of scaffolding towards tougher work is chuckle­ready on its face.

Mother and father must be outraged and Chancellor David Banks must put a cease to this disgraceful academic malfeasance instantly.

Our youngsters have to be educated, not have their intelligence insulted.

The poor state of America’s academic system is, sadly, not shocking.

Large-city college programs are full of radical Marxists. They’re purposefully dumbing- down their classes so college students received’t be ready for school, and most will both drop out or received’t apply within the first place.

However why would they need that? Many of those poorly educated college students will wind up in jobs they don’t like, and a very good variety of these will finally give up and search authorities help.

An added bonus is that almost all of those college students won’t ever marry and lift a household, which can be what they need.

China should be smiling to see how we educate our kids in america. What a shame.

I perceive the worth of studying “Goldilocks and the Three Bears” — it’s getting ready our kids for in the present day’s society.

Criminals profit from catch and launch. Individuals who don’t work abuse unemployment, and others blame the virus for prime costs Nobody has accountability. So educate our kids the straightforward approach out, too.

The Subject: The issuing of the state’s first recreational-marijuana gross sales licenses to companies.

From the second the state legalized the possession of sure quantities of pot, outlets have been opening like wildfire in all neighborhoods of New York (“Sure We Hashish,” Nov. 22).

Simply what are the implications for these unlawful outlets promoting pot? Are they being issued summons? Are they being closed? Are they shedding their storefront enterprise licenses? Nothing in any respect?

Now we have had at the very least 4 or 5 shops opened in our group of Whitestone. What’s being achieved?

Kim Cody

Whitestone

As a teen, I bear in mind asking older guys to purchase us boys a bottle of beer as they entered a grocery, as a result of we have been too younger. The identical will occur with marijuana now that sale of it’s normalized, like an ice cream bar.

For some, will probably be addictive and a gateway to different medicine. This marijuana has a efficiency properly past your grandfather’s marijuana.

My pet peeve has at all times been the usage of the adjective “leisure” because it pertains to marijuana. The adjective is used to decrease that it’s a mind-altering drug. It must be decriminalized, not normalized.
