Thank you. you are a gentleman and a scholar,and keep up the good fight<quoted text>
You're quite right Redeemer; a growing number of people in these professions are not Americans.
Alas, our countrymen are wasting everybody's time on how much money teachers make, why can't we fire them, why are we giving schools all this taxpayer money, blah, blah, blah.
What we really should be doing is looking at what other counties do for K-12 education; countries like India (corned the market on doctors and computer experts), Japan (best in science lately), and China (several goods are manufactured there and sent here to the U.S.)
We should ask ourselves if our school curriculum and organizational structure is 21st century or 19th century. American students spend the fewest days in school of most industrialized nations.
And we should pay special attention to classroom sizes, which we already know the smaller the classroom, the more students succeed.
Instead, what we're really advocating for is privatizing K-12 schools. Funny, the Catholic Archdiocess has closed a lot of private K-12 schools in the Twin Cities since 2006. But, that fact really won't make much of a difference to anybody.
you are kicking there as's.
