    Yes, please! The Bush-era fad of distrusting people who actually know what they’re talking about must end.

    You do not wish to have the best people academically go to our colleges and universities?

    I guess in seeing the level of some of your posts here, I can understand that. Even though I do not agree with it!!

    um … you do realize the difference between the number of athletes and the number of students, right?

    So long as we worship muscle strength over mental strength, this will never happen. But I suppose it’s okay that China will steal our lunch and take the reins of world affairs… so long as we can still dunk on them in the Olympics!

    It’s deeper. It starts in Kindergarten with Sesame Street (which is nice, but not very good, compared to our program “The Program with the Mouse” here in Germany).

    -

    People in the U.S. want their children to be happy and popular, not to be clever. They want them to be cool, calm, content instead of interested, questioning, investigative.

    -

    “The Mouse” has a library of hundreds of factual, small movies (made specifically for children), from all areas of life. How does a car engine work? Why are bananas bend? Can you lift a 40-foot container using a wooden rack held together with nothing but a glue made from cheese and chalk? These are interspersed with funny stories and children songs. It got me started like a rocket when I was five or so…

    -

    It’s not being a “tiger mom” or anything. It’s just providing real fodder for the brain instead of having “count Count” doing the same “1-2-3” routine all over again. By the time I was nine I could draw a pretty good explosion diagram of the Apollo-11 rocket and spaceship. Can your kid do that? Just kidding, I’m a freak :-)

    If you’d read Thomas Friedman of the New York Times, you’d know that our universities are cheating students by teaching them academics. They waste students’ time on stupid things like Thermodynamics, when they should be teaching Ayn Rand.


    If students would study Rand instead of Thermodynamics, they would not be taught that a John Galt car is impossible.


    Thermodynamics is completely wrong. Nothing is impossible for the American entrepreneur. And a John Galt car—one that runs on a battery that is recharged by the generator that turns as the car goes—will eliminate America’s dependence on foreign oil and will stop global warming.


    But stupid universities teach that this is impossible, which is wrong. Thermodynamics is totally wrong. Ayn Rand and Thomas Friedman have the right idea, that NOTHING is impossible for a clever American.

    When I was seven I could tell you the thrust of all the F1 engines on the Saturn V booster…but I was a space geek from an early age, having watched the moon landing when I was six.
    Have you ever watched Sesame Street? Are you aware that it was designed by a host of psychologists, precisely to encourage interest, investigation, and curiosity as well as empathy and awareness of others?
    There are other shows that go into how things are done and made – Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood used to be great at that. There’s also “How Things Are Made” on the Discovery Channel, plus of course Mythbusters (one of my kids’ favorite shows), which has spread all over the world.
    Don’t dis Sesame Street — there’s a reason why the GOP hates it.

    THIS is exactly right. If industry, corporations had a lick of sense they would be scouring high schools across the nation providing facilities and endowing programs to train our young people in what THEY need to advance into the future.

    Yes, we all love our gladiators. Time was they ruled the world. Games are a good way to disperse aggression and “declare” a “champion” with all the “bragging” rights that entails.

    But if we are to survive we need technical advancement in other areas than “how to kill”.

    The “hypothesis” is that during maturation the fruit curves in order to better facilitate access to ambient light. “negative geotropism.”

    That’s one opinion. Sounds good to me.

    Hahahahaha … there you go again. Love it.

    I’m sure he means that tuition have soared – supposing higher pay for teachers which I am sure is not the case. Administration does cut a large piece of that pie as do sports – but the product (measured by grades) has not noticeably improved.

    Not a “political” observation just fact.

    ^ Then again, it would be better if education was reserved only for those who could pay for it.

    Nope, education should be free supported, paid in full by you and your cronies.
