Sorry, I'll reply again, I was mistaken about what this meant.
My mistake then. I failed to understand the feature from the name.
Still different from what you actually said, okay? I'll drop it, but be more careful in your phrasing, and don't blame me for it.
Attempts to use objective measures, like identical math tests targeted to identical age groups sorta suggests that, yeah. Even discounting countries with the usual things like "they let their students drop out sooner"(as if we don't have incredible drop out rates here).
... to prove we're not abusing it. Yeah, that's the ticket.
(No, this seems like a possibly reasonable decision, for normal courtish type reasons)
But that strikes me as "Paying for the right to continue using your own property as you wish".
No, that's not a straw man. That's what you said. You said every education system was abysmal, implying the lack of a system was better.
Take responsibility for your own bad argument and don't blame me for pointing out how incredibly stupid it was. You can say "I didn't really mean that"
But no. You gotta go "I didn't say the stupid shit I said, here's me saying something much more reasonable as if it were what I said originally, idiot".
Thank you for your argument. I'm not sure how much I agree with its premises or data, but it's at least useful to reflect on.
Right, so education never did anything for anyone.
I mean, I'm not sure what you're comparing it to if "every education system" sucks. I hate to point out the obvious, but universal education was a transition point for society at large from some really terrible conditions. I'm sorry the real world is abysmal, but we don't live in a fictional universe where everyone is super-intelligent and knows everything.
You're not wrong, but I think you're disagreeing with a different point than I was making.
That's an argument for why it's bad, not for why it stops universal literacy. Those two aren't the same, and you're projecting an opinion ("Common core is good") that I haven't presented. Is it okay that I want people to defend their bare assertions? I see no inherent reason why it's wrong, but that's different from seeing any reason why it's right.
Yeah, but maybe investors ought to be aware of that.
Oh man, I always thought it was "Please, run Bill Gates over."
Well, yeah, politics and school administrations only makes things worse. If we could find a way to do without both, while still keeping universal education, no one would complain.
See that last period in your post. There's something you forgot there, like an explanation of why you see your point as true.
