  • Why some Americans choose to put on blinders and reward the blatant, undignified, and far less than presidential behavior of an elected US President, I will never understand.

  • There are two basic types of “in the future movies” one with replicators and people in shiny suit‘s, and the other being a “thunder dome” apocalypse. This plot line could be either folks. And let’s no forget what happened in the matrix movies when they blotted out the sun.

  • Younger people do no not truly understand that if they spent more time putting the work in to get what they want, then they may understand why older people are elected to office. The younger generation of Americans have been raised in a bubble that never let them fail at anything. Not at school, sports, even college and the work place. We have lowered the bar, and continue to do so, instead of demanding high standards. So is it surprising that the answer put forth in the article is to make it “easier

    In the 20 plus years that I’ve been a teacher, I have watched educators as a whole, willing put aside what they know to be good and sound teaching practices and lower their standards because the educational instruction came in a box with an apple on it.

    Unfortunately we’ve been sold a bag of magic beans, but this is no fairytale friends and there is no magic beanstalk.

    In the 20 plus years that I’ve been a teacher, I have watched educators as a whole, willing put aside what they know to be good and sound teaching practices and lower their standards because the educational instruction came in a box with an apple on it. First it was computers and now multiple types of devices. Students lean heavily on the abundant ways computers allow so much assistance, that real work gets done very little. Copying and pasting has replaced education and dumbed down a generation of Americans.

Between test companies and device companies education has become all about big business.
