ATS shows why old right wing partisan hacks can be so damned stupid.


Because I want higher standards and smarter people.

yeah.


Is that what you are going for.

After reading the articles I am questioning if maybe they are right because what I would like to see is more qualified people able to fill more jobs.

Like the girl in the article going for a degree in infant care. Certainly, she needs to be competent in algebra, but is it really necessary for it to be college level(linear and quadratic functions, general polynomial functions, rational functions, and exponential and logarithmic functions)? If it isn't necessary for her to do such a job then why require it? That is what they are looking at and possibly adjusting.

I think preparing people for the job market is more important than making people smarter than they need to be.

No matter if someone is from the left or right people should put down their partisanship and consider this.

You are not following the thread?

The article says:

So if you're not a STEM major (science, technology, engineering, math), why even study algebra?

If you want higher educational standards, then why conflict with what we are saying?

If it isn't a leftist thing, then say it.

Why can't you just "say" that you want higher educational standards?

If you can't figure it out then I can't help you.
Keep up with your bashing of the left.

I've noticed that many liberal, left leaning posters often assume that anybody they consider conservative are old.

Strange that those who pretend to be tolerant of all often dismiss opinions on the basis of age.
Almost like some see the natural progression of getting older as a bad thing.
I think they hate people who they perceive to be old.
They are ageists.

How can I be wrong when people can have a solid understanding of algebra and not pass your test because they didn't study electronics and have no idea of what Ohm's law is?

Good thing education level doesn't equate to IQ, common sense, or wisdom.

If you want to get into those between the left and right, you may not like the results.

Yes I get that.

I directly quoted you not the article though. SO ?




No, I quoted the text that gives the context and it isn't what you claim.


Your last post made absolutely no sense. Sorry


My argument stands.

So lowering standards is okay for you.

Again, I say "ok" *shrug*

I despise leftists because they are for less freedoms, bigger government more taxes, and drone mentality.

So yeah, I can't stand the ideology.

This is why I put it in the Pit.

You quoted me saying that I had posted a quote that gives context.

That context was fields that don't use algebra shouldn't require it. What does that have to do with the tech fields building industries and technologies you used as an example?

I despite rightists because they want to ignore the First Amendment and dumb down children with the Bible and Creationism, forcing science out of public schools and replace with the Bble and Creationism, thus lowering the standards of education.
See how that works?

Making sure people are qualified to do the job they are studying for so that after graduating they are able to enter the job market is my biggest priority.

In my opinion that should be the "standard".

We get that knowledge is good but the article isn't about people not acquiring it. Its about focusing in what better serves in a chosen field. Hyperbole does not make your case.


Hyperbole does not make your case.

Hyperbole does not make your case.

Hyperbole does not make your case.

Hyperbole does not make your case.


It doesnt make yours either. The context of YOUR WORDS was not ignored by my comment. This is all deflection because its easier than addressing what I am actually saying.

You have your standard, I have mine.

I guess we'll just have to disagree.

It's interesting, when I worked as an entertainment electrician I had no call to use Ohm's law.
I think it was Trig (high school), that I first learned about Ohm's law.

I've never studied electronics, but Ohm's law has been something I've needed for my schooling. Are you sure you are making the argument you want to?

Now you understand so stop playing the partisan game. Just simply say that some dumb educators want to remove the requirement. It might not be accurate but it would be MORE accurate than your bashing of the left.
Thank you for understanding.

It's a terrible post.
How do you know anyway?
Do watch Fox News often?
