well, I'm talking math. science, education, but apparently all subjects are on a downslide. I believe that the 50's generation was better educated with less money than today. For God's sake if you ask a everige American where is Europe, most don't know, many spell worst than I do, math. and science, are at they lowest. these are not my words or opinions, these are statistical facts. Many educators are educators because of they color of they skin and not because they are qulifayed to do so. A teacher even if qulifayed is restrained by how to teach a particular subject, many have no power over their students, the average GPE is altered, to obtain more funding, school boards are corrupted, education is corrupted, liberals want everyone to be a winner, there are no incentives for to strive. Why are math books always rewritten ? have the math. changed? There are millions of reason that in the 50's the education was way more effective and students on average were way better prepared for upcoming obstacles of life than they are today. I know kids from third world economies when they come here they out do any averadge american in any subject accept perhaps acting, singing,and clowning. Today meaningless people are promoted for they meaningless achievements getting meaningless awards, and those are the people our children are looking up to. Snooki, Situation, Kardashian, and countless of drunks and booms that are the heroes of our youth. What's wrong??
