  • the huberteam is only trying to add on more corruption[data] into the mix to distract from the patronage graft fleecing cps. i do not need millions of dollars of data gathering to tell you schools are not teaching the children in our city.

    go to any general high school get 100 students at random and ask them three questions.

    what is the philosophy of albert camus and how did that mirror the liberal arts during the time he was alive?

    what is the quadratic formula and how is it derived?

    what is mole weight and its relation to avagdo's number?

    go try it out and see what happens.
