Is this a result of the heretofore badly paid women finally being able to enter the workforce as almost equals to men? Those teachers in the late 19th and early to mid 20th century were the equials of the women CEOs, scientists, docters, lawyers, etc. of today. Now that we can actually find a job worthy of our skills and paying what we are worth, why teach for low wages in schools that are physically dangerous? considered to be a profession the equal of the law or medicine.

Notice in each "divided" society there is a ruling class whose fortunes are gathered off the backs of the enslaved class? Do you really think that the ruling class offspring are obtaining a decent education when it is one that is based in judgment and predation on the underprivileged? Its time we all open our eyes to the real source of divisiveness and take aim at the corrupt corporation/government connection sucking the life out of our children's future.

Scientifically Studying Ecstasy

MDMA (commonly known as the empathogen “ecstasy”) is classified as a Schedule 1 drug, which is reserved for compounds with no accepted medical use and a high abuse potential. Two researchers from Stanford, however, call for a rigorous scientific exploration of MDMA's effects to identify precisely how the drug works, the data from which could be used to develop therapeutic compounds.

Do you agree that ecstasy should be studied for its potential therapeutic benefits?
