    How about instead, every legislator be required to go through a class on the Constitution and pass a tough exam as a condition of keeping his job!

    Isn't this punishing the child for the parents behavior?

    We no longer hold kids back in school for slacking or misbehaving, but we hold them back now if the parents do? Typical New York legislation that fails to recognize where accountability truly lies.

    As a parent, I'm curious as to just what is taught in these "classes". Especially when it comes to how parents should deal with SSA in their kids and other controversial issues. If I don't hold to the same views as those teaching the class, do I not get a passing grade?
