Scatter-brain \Scat"ter-brain`\, n.
A giddy or thoughtless person; one incapable of concentration or attention.
But a scatterbrain can grow too, and this blog is with me on that journey!
I agree with this. I'm from the Chicago area and right now (like many other communities), we have a serious problem with gang violence in schools. If someone can read, write, and do math, it doesn't matter if they cannot carry themselves in a respectful manor. Schools need to focus on this a little bit more. :-]
I like your 3 R's. Without those, education is lost. I sure wish more parents were of the same mind!
