You seem to ignore psychology.
The problem is basically funding, highly trained professionals getting not enough resources to helt people.
He is a smelly hippy.
However, he is very intelligent and has a solid foundation for what he's saying.
So while he is somewhat ridicolous, he is also highly fascinating.
Assburgers is often used as a means of indicating that someone does not in fact have Aspergers Syndrome, but is merely acting like an ass.
Teaching basic math is a very different thing from learning to do advanced math.
And, yes, basic math would include pretty much everything up to university level.
In Sweden, we have consistently been going less and less memorization and this has led to lower and lower results on international tests like PISA.
Much of the discussion is why we perform lower, and it's almost never even suggested that the tests are poor indicators for actually being successful in a chosen field.
It's almost always seen as a failure of the school system.

Learning basic programming to kids seems like a good way to get them interested in it.
Some basic scripting, learning what if, while and loops are?

You can count on any specific knowledge about a programming language to be next to irrelevant in about five years.

Also a good idea.

I've seen this argument before, but never an explanation as to why.
I have 100/100 for the equivalent of 10 USD.
Including a 25% sales tax.
Five public IPs, one static, btw.
I hoped they would allow activesync with this.
This is kinda important since ActiveSync support has been removed in Android 5.0.
Nine is one of the few clients that support it.
The problem is that humans aren't actually that far beyond sheep.
We are ruled by pretty much the same instincts.
It's just that we have different ways to use those pretty much same instincts.
I really liked that the videos first argument was that if you aren't allowed to use your own computer, this one is easy to hide!
It's an ugly work-around which disrupts focus workflows.
