    Why in the world would Mrs. Sue put incorrect answers on here? Mrs. Sue, I understand your beliefs in students doing their own work... but, that doesn't give you the right to sabotage a students grade. If you truely want to help, volunteer in a public school to students who aren't taking online courses. I am a single 25 year old mom. I moved to MS after years of abuse and neglect. I attended the public schools here and they are terrible. During my senior year, my alcoholic grnadmother kicked me out of the house and I was forced to work 2 jobs at 17 and start online school. As I said before the schools here suck. Even though I was in my final year, the school systems down-right refused to transfer my transcripts. So, I have had to re-take 3 years of high-school. Not everyone looking up their answers are here to cheat in school...Some of us just want to double check that we are securing a stable financial future for our children. Please just go volunteer somewhere, I have seen so many of your postings on here... Go help children stay in school, you are useless here.

  • nonfiction - ,

    hey Mrs. Sue is just trying to get people to do their own work. its so lazy that you guys have to sit here and copy everyones work for every test.

  • nonfiction - ,

    i don't no what ur problem with mr. sue is. i mean i agree with makin sure students don't cheat but also that people are wanting to check their answers.
    like me im 14 now and i want a good future and i like school. But at first i didn't think much of school and my grade aveage was an 80 and i thought i would be fine
    but then my dad told me he won't love me unless i brought it up to at least an 85
    jk but im pretty much just wanting to bring it up so i studied and read the books but i still like to double check my answer. im not in lacies situation though and that seams like it would suck to be kicked out at the age of 17 but still. i still didn't prove my point on why r u having a problem with mr. sue but u see if mrs sue tells us wut r wrong no one cares i didn't even pay attention to him until i read ur big long thing about it. and i don't see the point in typing this because it's so long that no one would wanna read it so yeah whatever .....

  • nonfiction - ,

    and if there was sumone that came to cheat wich im sure half of u r then if u kept giving them the wrong answer and the failed they would just move to another web site. like if i took a test and looked at a web site i wouldn't even submit it unless i new it was right. like when i found this website the i still checked 5 other ones to make sure they all said the same things..
