Programs vs. Street Gangs
« on: April 16, 2006, 01:54:00 PM »
Gangs: Brutal initiation involving physical roughing-up
Programs: Brutal initiation involving physical roughing-up, intense emotional humiliation, and the onset of long-term psychological disorders

Programs: Teach respect temporarily, after which they swiftly lose it
Gangs: Teach a respect which usually lasts them their whole lives.

Programs: Expensive
Gangs: May actually make your child considerable money

Gangs: If caught, your child may land in jail
Programs: Bypass the whole "getting caught" part

Programs: Potentially lethal
Gangs: Potentially lethal

Programs: Isolate the child from family and community
Gangs: Encourage community involvement in extra-curricular activities

Programs: Teach lies
Gangs: Teach useful real-world survival skills

The choice is clear. Parents, ignore expensive "educational consultants" and program advocates. Introduce your child to your local gang leader today.

Gangs involve freedom of choice, and freedom in general so program parents will be completely against that idea. Plus, the baggy pants and bandanas scare them.

that's funny as hell, but hardly useful.
