Because when principal declares pompously in front of a full house back to school night that he has visited many schools around he world by RHS is the best he has seen ……………..fill in the blanks. RHS is full of hubris and we are sowing the results. Our kids are not getting the education they deserve. There are teachers that do not teach but just throw stuff at students and we have to scramble to find tutors and pay and arm and a leg to get the kids what we already pay for through taxes. We need a complete overhaul of the BOE and especially RHS higher ups. This is the only way to get back to the great times. We need passionate and competent people who have a clear vision and strategy with the best interests for kids and their families in mind.

Monsanto chief admits ‘hubris’ is to blame for public fears over GM
OLIVER WRIGHT Monday 23 March 2015

The American company that produced the world’s first genetically modified crop has admitted for the first time that its “hubris” in promoting the technology contributed to a consumer backlash against genetically modified food.

Speaking to The Independent, the chief executive of Monsanto conceded that the company had failed to appreciate public concerns over GM technology when it was introduced nearly 20 years ago.

And he also said that the company had suffered by making “the wrong call” when it failed to rebrand itself in the aftermath of the botched launch of GM in Europe.

But Hugh Grant claimed that unless public attitudes towards biotechnology changed it would be impossible to feed the world’s growing population and called for a more nuanced debate on the potential uses for GM technology in the developing world.

“There never had been a lot of trust in companies, particularly not big companies and certainly not big American companies,” he said.
