Many of the most successful countries with test results, have a school system where only the best continue on to more schooling the rest go to vocational schools.
I am not sure what a "vocational school" is in a post-industrial environment. I am not even sure any more what "best" means in this context.
Where to begin? Denial of reading the classics. The elimination of poetry and Shakespeare. Replacement with texts designed to limit vocabulary and more importantly, limit thinking. The almost assured dropout rate of at least 34% as the kids too stupid to achieve common core drop out from frustration and the kids too smart for common core drop out from boredom.
It's likely great for the 68% of the kids in the middle of the bell curve, but universal literacy is not going to be accomplished under it anymore.
And 78% of the test with a ruler and marking column C.
I was sneaking around slashdot before, and now the front-page and journals all sow up in the beta. Removing "beta." from the URL is of no help. It reminds me of Windows 8, which made me switch away from Windows and to the Mac. Perhaps, we are now entering the Third Age of slashdot.
It's in the 9th.
"The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people."
Gates only supports the common core because it will create students stupid enough to buy Windows 9.
The problem being that Common Core is a step *away* from universal literacy.
I have insurance through my wife's union- which is a union of daycare owners. Was the only way to get insurance prior to this year.
My point is that obamacare didn't really fix anything at all- it raised costs, not lowered them.
even after the Affordable Care Act, millions of poor Americans will remain uninsured because governors, mainly Republicans, have refused to expand Medicaid
The logical fallacies are strong with this one.
Because $6,700 is real chump change. I know families where both parents work for at least 40 hours a week, and they have outstanding medical bills of just a few thousand dollars that they can't pay. Racking up $6,700 a year, plus the few hundred a month, is only going to make things worse.
This is absolutely NOT helping the people who the administration claimed it would.
So you see every article that might possibly be critical of any tiny facet of the current Administration to be a work of supposed right-wing radicals?
You're part of the problem.
