Is thinking some one is arrogant the same as being envious?


Nope, which is the point I was trying to make but it is lost on him.

Is this data based per capita or all conclusive. In your rush to find A agreeable stance you neglected to find that out.


Why did you say find "A agreeable" stance?
I am in no rush..

As I said I am friends with many teachers. This topic is closer to home for me.

You want to raise the bar for kids, or you want to lower it? Tell me what you think should happen..
I want to raise the standards and get better teaching.. It's something I am looking into as a possible next step in my life, though I have many plans.

To raise the standards first you call out that things are not going well.. See that iceberg? Yea it's not that bad of course. Just saying.

Vietnam in Thailand were predominantly mentioned in the second source. If you choose to base your opinion on countries where only the best pupils are in schools you have no opinion.

Not to derail your thread, but it really boils down to separation of Church and State. The state wanted say-so in marriage and that resulted in divorce rates that are insane. I mean, how often does the Church dissolve a marriage?

So the seeds for this nations destruction was sown when it was founded? If this were a religious run nation we would be way lower than 28th.


Ahhh Buster!! Wrong thread, brother. I guess your voice wasn't heard there ... so here you are.

We were doing just fine in the 50s/60s of the last century ... Back before you progressives with your commie agenda took root and started to blossom.

One doesn't have to look hard to see what Common Core sprung up from.

No ... exactly the opposite.

Had the State stayed out of matters of the Church you wouldn't have anywhere near such a steep drop to contend with.

I guess if I lived in a community predominantly comprised of graduate level residents, I might be blind to the origins as well.

-Cheers


What? Why are you still talking about church and marriage?
And yes living around smart people does help to see more clearly.

It's not graduate level residents.. It's a hub of PHDs and research...

Critical thinking belongs in school. god and sheep have to stay outside until the bell rings.

Oh and I've met Jesus.. I'm just not religious.

One can only assume (and hope) that you're trying to make a joke or pun, but it's fallen flat...

When did I say how I base my opinion.. ?
I basically said I don't know what this article is saying unless I see the data, but I'm not surprised to see the USA at 28th.
You can site me mentioning Thailand and Vietnam?

Your comprehension is LOW.

I use voice dictation then go back and edit. Because one of my favorite things to do is reduce someone to being a grammar Nazi then remind them I'm using voice dictation!

Seriously? I don't care what you think. If all you can do is insult me in your response then maybe you need to do a self evaluation.
Ya I fail to see the hidden message in your bragging about your abundance of food in a thread about how our education system is failing.
Which seems to come from the thought process of the royals of the middle ages.
Go and do that around some starving people and see if they get it.

Here is my opinion, every poster above this post I would rank well above the average in intelligence.

and I am pretty sure you all know it.

LOL Funny thing is ... neither am I.

I guess you don't want to talk about the breakdown of the family unit, traditional roles, the State imposing itself ever deeper into our lives. Nah ... you wanna fixate on religion. Does it scare you?

Can you tell me what my agenda is?
I may have an agenda. I think I stated it earlier.

Would you like to get back to the topic?

Pointing out that our schools are not doing so hot, NO MATTER why... It's a GOOD thing to do.

The key is, can we get smaller class sizes. But we will not. America has played it's hand as a world power, so money wont be coming back in the budget from the military.. So Teaching will still be sliding, but it's really not that bad.

I'm willing to teach anyone over the internet for free.
