America´s downfall doesn´t begin with the "low-information voter." It starts with the no-knowledge student. For decades, collectivist agitators in our schools have chipped away at academic excellence in the name of fairness, diversity and social justice. "Progressive" reformers denounced Western civilization requirements, the Founding Fathers and the Great Books as racist. They attacked traditional grammar classes as irrelevant in modern life. They deemed ability grouping of students (tracking) bad for self-esteem. They replaced time-tested rote techniques and standard algorithms with

I´ve never heard of "Common Core," but if it´s another 0bamaNation idea, our kids are in for real trouble. how is oit that with our "three R" and a slide rule, we put three men toward the Moon and back safely? If its not broke, why do we allow the socialist dRATS to fix our wagon? Something is truly rotten to the "Core."

You´ll notice they all send their kids to private schools that don´t suffer the same failings as what they impose on the rest of us.

"Fairness" in education: the redistribution of stupidity.
Once you grant Democrats "good intentions" it´s unavoidable and inevitable.

An ignorant population is easier to control and manipulate. The left has been doing this for a few generations now, but they need to ramp up their efforts because they are still meeting too much resistance from the few TRULY educated who also still know how to use real critical thinking and common sense.

The problem is al these indoctrinated robots they´re cranking don´t have real world intellect and they´ll hit a brick wall in their early 20´s.They hide in their basements and get stoned,hoping they wake up smart enough one day to get a job.

They´ll vote for easy street but that´s unsustainable for the country and Obama is a liar and deceiver with his crap about "investing" in education.These kids in college,enjoying their free ride right now are going to be straddled the rest of their life with college debt.

The incentives are reversed. If you had debt forgiveness if you land a job in the private sector we wouldn´t have all these crap "studies" courses.

A great many of the children in schools today aren´t interested in learning. Their parents often don´t care if the child is learning.

What they do care about is material things. Brand-name clothing, iPhones, iPods to listen to music, and just about any sort of thing to AVOID doing work. Their "gods" are those who have hit it big in music and those who have achieved fame in the media, but who have really not done much to deserve it.

So many are averse to actually doing academic things and the teachers are burdened with all sorts of "social" tasks and pressures that take the focus off of students learning.

On the other end of the spectrum, you have parents who hover menacingly over their kids and do the work for them, or that teacher will pay.... Standardized tests have created false security when we find that fewer and fewer can actually do the work some politician said they should do on ever-rising scales.

There seem to be few consequences when the constant repackaging of curriculum fails, such as "Common Core". We have dummed down our society so much that hard work is not celebrated as much as being popular.

As usual, if you want to find out who’s behind a dirty deed, you follow the money:

“…there are organizations that have reasons to work for lower and less-demanding standards, specifically teachers unions and professional teacher organizations. While they may not admit it, they have a vested interest in lowering the accountability bar for their members. ...This will be done in the name of ´critical thinking´ and ´21st-century´ skills, and in faraway Washington, D.C., well beyond the reach of parents…”

And if you want to find out where the “progressive reformers” running the last mighty monopoly of the 21st Century—public education—are drawing their ideas from, why here you go:

“The critical-theory philosophical frame traces its roots to the Frankfurt School of Critical Social Theory that attempted to amend Marxist theory for applicability in 20th-century Germany.”

It’s time to end the strangle-hold teacher unions have on our children and bust up the Big Education racket.

The U.S. Constitution leaves the responsibility for public K-12 education with the states. The federal government provides less than 10% of all elementary and secondary funding. The rest comes from state and local government revenues.

Yet national “progressive” education reformers have managed to leverage the federal government’s 10% contribution into a controlling interest in Public Education Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the National Education Association.

It’s time to stop the tail from wagging the dog and insist that our public schools stop being used as glorified day care centers for busy parents and indoctrination centers promoting already-tried-and-failed “progressive” ideologies.

Poster #8 has obviously been touched by reality - I appreciate that post.

Teachers are not behind the Common Core. Teachers did not "invent" this idea. Politicians did. Republican governors are behind it, among others.

Most teachers want to remain employed. They have very little power over the formal curriculum in any school district.

These reform movements are driven in large part by administrators´ greed for federal money. Get the feds out of local education. Teachers will still face the same problems they do today but the pretense of solving these problems with wasteful initiatives such as Race to the Top and No Child Left Behind will be a welcome relief. And the unions won´t have federal slush funds to fight for, either.

Math has traditionally been taught to make children hate math. A decade of arithmetic is a guaranteed turn-off. Rote learning is not learning at all, at its *best* it is just a shortcut time-saver. Learning to derive is the true path to mastery.

It was rote memorization that failed Governor Perry. If he had worked up from principles and been able to derive his answers, he could have remembered his three departments and even given the motivation for closing them.

And on motivation, Malkin misidentifies the cart and horse - if the motivation for a method is absent until the students have memorized the method, they literally have no motivation to learn it. Adding a lack of motivation to drilling four operations over a decade equals zero.

This is by design. We spend $300 billion a year on *interest*. A mathematically literate population would never stand for that. Mathematically literate legislators would laugh off Keynes. And a mathematically literate columnist would not blindly worship motivation-free rote memorization.

Kids - if (or is it "since?") your math teacher is stupid, there are Wolfram Mathworld and the Khan Academy. Hell, even Wackypedia is pretty good on math - what are they gonna do, make a left-wing crackpot proof?

Agree somewhat with #13, that kids are actually motivated to hate math. #8 is right that most kids are taught by an education major, not a math major. At my daughter´s very small elementary school, I was taken aback by the principal´s comment that she chose to teach math because she wasn´t ever very good at it, but she wanted others to not to be miserable in math class. Moved the daughter´s to private school after that.

Pope poses for ´selfies´
after Palm Sunday homily
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/13/2014 1:40:22 PM     Post Reply
Vatican City - Pope Francis, marking Palm Sunday in a packed St. Peter´s Square, ignored his prepared homily and spoke entirely off-the-cuff in a remarkable departure from practice. Later, he continued to stray from the script by hopping off his popemobile to pose for "selfies" with young people and also sipping tea passed to him from the crowd. In his homily, Francis called on people, himself included, to look into their own hearts to see how they are living their lives. "Has my life fallen asleep?" Francis asked after listening to a Gospel account of how Jesus´ disciples fell asleep shortly before he was betrayed by Judas before his crucifixion.

More than 100 city teachers, administrators and other school staffers have been caught in the last five years engaging in sexual or “inappropriate” relationships with students, The Post has learned. The special commissioner of investigation for city schools, Richard Condon, has fielded 593 complaints about such illicit relationships since April 2009. His office substantiated 104 cases, it ­revealed Friday. “I’m absolutely stunned at that number,” said Laura Timoney, a Community Education Council member whose 15-year-old daughter attends a city high school on Staten Island. “It’s shocking, but what do you do to stop this?”

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, who led the rocky rollout of Obamacare and surprised D.C. observers by stepping down this week, said that if President Obama wanted to talk her out of leaving, he didn’t even get the chance. “I made it pretty clear that that really wasn’t an option, to stay on,” Mrs. Sebelius told NBC’s Andrea Mitchell in an interview aired Sunday. “I mean, I thought it was fair to either commit till January of 2017 or leave with enough time that he would get a strong, competent leader.” Mr. Obama tapped his budget chief, Sylvia Mathews Burwell, to replace Mrs. Sebelius.

Sen. Rand Paul said Sunday he will not decide whether to run for president until after the mid-term elections, noting he still has to poll his family before he builds on straw poll victories and launches an earnest bid. In a wide-ranging interview with ABC’s Jonathan Karl, the Kentucky Republican said the GOP needs to “evolve, change and grow” if it wants to win again, and that he wants to be a part of that. He also deflected his positive polling with modesty. “I guess it’s better than not being noticed,” Mr. Paul said. On immigration, he said former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who some GOP moderates want to recruit for a presidential bid,

Marijuana Vending Machine

An automated pot-selling machine was unveiled at an event held at an Avon, Colo., restaurant Saturday, promising a potential new era of selling marijuana and pot-infused snacks from vending machines directly to customers. Its creators say the machine, called the ZaZZZ, uses biometrics to verify a customer´s age. The machine is climate-controlled to keep its product fresh. You may be picturing a vending machine on a sidewalk, ready to dispense pot brownies to anyone with correct change. That´s not quite what backers of the machine have in mind. For now, at least, the ZaZZZ is aimed for use only by medical marijuana patients.

Slaviansk, Ukraine - Ukrainian security forces launched an operation on Sunday to clear pro-Russian separatists from state buildings in the eastern city of Slaviansk, with dead reported on both sides as Kiev combated what it calls an act of aggression by Moscow. With East-West relations in crisis, NATO described the appearance in eastern Ukraine of men with specialized Russian weapons and identical uniforms without insignia - as previously worn by Moscow´s troops when they seized Crimea - as a "grave development". Ukraine faces a rash of rebellions in the east that it says are inspired and directed by the Kremlin.

In May 2012, the law school at George Mason University hosted a forum billed as a “vibrant discussion” about Internet search competition. Many of the major players in the field were there — regulators from the Federal Trade Commission, federal and state prosecutors, top congressional staffers. What the guests had not been told was that the day-long academic conference was in large part the work of Google, which maneuvered behind the scenes with GMU’s Law & Economics Center to put on the event.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

President Obama labeled complaints about voter fraud “bogus” and accused Republicans of cynically trying to prevent Americans from accessing the polls in a fiery speech Friday at a civil rights forum hosted by Al Sharpton. Obama argued that attempts in some states to impose new voter identification restrictions were actually efforts by Republicans to make “it harder, not easier to vote.” And the president said that while voter fraud should be prevented, it rarely occurred. “So let´s be clear, the real voter fraud is the people who try to deny our rights by making bogus arguments about voter fraud,” Obama said.

Because you can find anything on the Web, you can easily search and pull up a running clock that tells you just how long, to the second, Barack Obama has been president. It moves in real time. It only feels like it´s speeding up. Constrained by crises over which he has little power to impact events, hemmed in by a divided Congress more interested in scoring points with voters than in legislating, and watching as his potential successor assumes more and more of the political spotlight, Obama may be receding into history more quickly than either he or his aides ever anticipated.
