I say this line often, and I'm usually right.
Every time you said it and it wasn't right, it was a lie you told yourself.
A person suspects Timothy of being a murderer and panning a second murder thus that person knows that Timothy is a murderer and will be killing again and thus can kill Timothy and claim defense of another based solely on that suspicion.
My stats are the most current I could find on such short notice and there was no information on India. But, what I notice is you offered NOT ONE SINGLE REFERENCE FOR YOUR CLAIMS AT ALL, and that makes your entire post "irrelevant".

To be quite blunt, your entire argument seems to be that high standards and expectations are a bad thing. That, of course, flies in the face of the recently validated idea that high expectations lead to high performance
When I was in third grade, we didn't write out the times tables, we wrote out every single number between one and a thousand in numbers and in letters by ones, one and ten thousand by fives, tens, and fifties, and one and one million by hundreds as homework. It took about a week. That is a form of rote memorization and it works.
You talk about Common Core producing "confused, bitter adults.. or the worker drones they really want", yet the current curriculum is based more on memorization and parroting back the "correct" answers and gives partial credit for utilizing the correct method even if the answer is wrong (that, by the way, boils down to "it doesn't matter what you get as long as you do things my way") rather than critical thinking which many say is a hallmark of Common Core
It really sounds like your "bright" kid liked science and school when it was easier and as he has gotten older he has, like so many kids, started to dislike school and you are blaming Common Core instead of actually finding out why your kid doesn't like it. Maybe you should start spending more time with your kid and helping him with his studies, something called "being a parent", instead of making excuses.
Lost generation from the non-optimal angle should be less than that from snow buildup.
Resulting in a need for a larger generation surface due to both non-optimal angle of incidence and the fact that the panels will get less light.
The Antartic has so little precipitation that is qualifies as a desert.
The particulates from smoke/smog/etc. can build up and who will spray them? Remember, the building owners don't own them and may not want them.
Snow occasionally falls off of a tilted surface, and only when it reaches a certain mass. If the snow builds up to that level over the course of a week or two, that is all lost generation time.
Bam, the problems are not solved.
