Education Issues

Oldest Page 1, 2 Newest Addition

Our children are our future treasure.  They will be the ones, that take care of us in our old age.  They will be the ones who will either build up our future or tear it down.

We can improve our education system by seeking out options that work.  We must reach out and utilize methods that work.

 
An example of the Bull crap that is being taught in some American Schools:

South Carolina Christian School Fourth Grade Science Quiz
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/04/26/1205102/-South-Carolina-Christian-School-Fourth-Grade-Science-Test?detail=email#



The source of this quiz is the father of the student who took it. He will not identify the school until June, after his daughter finishes the school year there, after which she will move to another school. Snopes rates this item as "probably true.

I'm pretty much speechless here. Plus, the test speaks for itself.

 

Pre-schooling works in preparing our children.  Daycare also improves the way for our children to succeed in life.  As such, Daycare and pre schooling should be provide to all of our children, not just the affluent.  These people employed in these areas should be qualified, college educated and be paid a living wage to insure the highest results.  Just as we have Medicare for the elderly, we should have a national pre-school program for our future.

Education-Finland has best education system in the world

Finland's education success CNN report

Having a school breakfast and lunch programs help our children succeed. 

If the U.S. can spend money on incarceration of offenders, we should be increase spending money on education.  Even the cost of college.  The long-term results would be a better way of life for all of us.

A commitment for excellence is not going to be free, but the alternatives will be more costly.
