Forum Rules (Everyone Must Read!!!)

1] What you CAN NOT post.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this forum to post any material which is:
- abusive
- vulgar
- hateful
- harassing
- personal attacks
- obscene

You also may not:
- post images that are too large (max is 500*500px)
- post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or cited properly.
- post in UPPER CASE, which is considered yelling
- post messages which insult the Armenians, Armenian culture, traditions, etc
- post racist or other intentionally insensitive material that insults or attacks another culture (including Turks)

The Ankap thread is excluded from the strict rules because that place is more relaxed and you can vent and engage in light insults and humor. Notice it's not a blank ticket, but just a place to vent. If you go into the Ankap thread, you enter at your own risk of being clowned on.
What you PROBABLY SHOULD NOT post...
Do not post information that you will regret putting out in public. This site comes up on Google, is cached, and all of that, so be aware of that as you post. Do not ask the staff to go through and delete things that you regret making available on the web for all to see because we will not do it. Think before you post!

2] Use descriptive subject lines & research your post. This means use the SEARCH.

This reduces the chances of double-posting and it also makes it easier for people to see what they do/don't want to read. Using the search function will identify existing threads on the topic so we do not have multiple threads on the same topic.

3] Keep the focus.

Each forum has a focus on a certain topic. Questions outside the scope of a certain forum will either be moved to the appropriate forum, closed, or simply be deleted. Please post your topic in the most appropriate forum. Users that keep doing this will be warned, then banned.

4] Behave as you would in a public location.

This forum is no different than a public place. Behave yourself and act like a decent human being (i.e. be respectful). If you're unable to do so, you're not welcome here and will be made to leave.

5] Respect the authority of moderators/admins.

Public discussions of moderator/admin actions are not allowed on the forum. It is also prohibited to protest moderator actions in titles, avatars, and signatures. If you don't like something that a moderator did, PM or email the moderator and try your best to resolve the problem or difference in private.

6] Promotion of sites or products is not permitted.

Advertisements are not allowed in this venue. No blatant advertising or solicitations of or for business is prohibited.
This includes, but not limited to, personal resumes and links to products or
services with which the poster is affiliated, whether or not a fee is charged
for the product or service. Spamming, in which a user posts the same message repeatedly, is also prohibited.

7] We retain the right to remove any posts and/or Members for any reason, without prior notice.


Members are welcome to read posts and though we encourage your active participation in the forum, it is not required. If you do participate by posting, however, we expect that on the whole you contribute something to the forum. This means that the bulk of your posts should not be in "fun" threads (e.g. Ankap, Keep & Kill, This or That, etc.). Further, while occasionally it is appropriate to simply voice your agreement or approval, not all of your posts should be of this variety: "LOL Member213!" "I agree."
If it is evident that a member is simply posting for the sake of posting, they will be removed.

8] These Rules & Guidelines may be amended at any time. (last update September 17, 2009)

If you believe an individual is repeatedly breaking the rules, please report to admin/moderator.

    Re: Public School vs Private School

    I think it may be a bit more nuanced than that... Are you talking about K-12, college, professional programs, etc.? What field of study?

      Class size is criticle for me.
      The ideal group size is between 7/12.
      To study with a certain teacher one may have to forgo smaller class but otherwise , small , quiet class is best opportunity to learn. IMHO.

            I like public, eventhough I prefer smaller clases there is a bit of more freedom and independence overall

              Class size is one difference. There are many differences. Public schools tend to have more support services and can accommodate students of varying ability and needs better typically. The teachers are certified whereas for private they are not. Private schools can change the curriculum and teach what they want (e.g. that people rode dinosaurs). There's no transparency in the system, so you don't see how your tuition dollars are spent and the schools not accountable in any sense that encourages regular evaluation and improvement efforts. And so on...

              I haven't done an exhaustive search of the research in this area, but I know of at least one large study that showed on average, once you control for background characteristics (race, parents education level, income, etc.) public school kids tend to have better outcomes.

              Here you go:

                Eventhough I like small classroom sizes, I agree with you Siggie
                public school sticks with something as far as the curriculum & its consistencey where as private school do whatever they want at any moment

                  Public schools have more resources which allows them to be more flexible and more able to meet the needs of their students. I have been in both systems and have seen the severe limitations private schools have to work with because of lack of funding, programs, size... This does not mean there are no good private schools but public schools generally can meet more of demands of their students then private schools.

                    My post on classroom size was not an endorsement of private schools.
                    I had a 650 triumph motorcycle when I was 16 years old. A car did not see me and made a left turn in front of me. I ended up in the hospital. I had quit high school and was working. After getting out of hospital, family moved my busted up self back to my mothers house to recuperate. While there I was put back in school via telephone while I lay in a hospital bed in mothers front room. After I was able to walk but still had cast on arm and skull fracture busted ear drum were still in the process of healing, I went to a school for physically handicapped.
                    A public school for the extreme . I was only temporarily in handicaps situation.
                    The small class size plus teacher consideration saw me go from basic "d" grades to straight "a's". During this time I realized how simple this was and also realized I could do a years worth of school in 1/2 months easily.
                    Whatever advantages the public schools may have, the class size is detrimental to actual learning.
                    A distinct detriment.
