    "Among 30 developed countries, we rank 25th in math and 21st in science. In almost every category, we've fallen behind. Except one.... Kids from the u.s.a, rank #1 in confidence"

    that is because in those nations they respect the teaching profession as an art, schools as institutions of learning,
    and students as the most precious asset of the nation, and the nations future

    After the neocon republicans and now the neo- neocon democrats under Arne Duncan

    teachers are workers in a factory
    schools are a business

    and children are considered as domestic products, and just cogs in the wheel

    We send our kids to a mostly black private school. Granted, we have to sacrifice to do such, but it works out.

    I just don't trust the public schools these days.

    this is what I just don't get and i'm just saying

    we often talk about how schools, statistics, religion, politics etc. are biased and not designed for anyone to "truly" succeed and then we base our worth and validity on the numbers published that are in unison with the foundation of the same institutions we claim to understand

    we up on fractal math, beyond quantum physics

    detailed in our understanding of religion, politics, economics and business

    not to say natural musicians and athletes

    and confident and don't even know why

    there is only one statistic or unstatistic that really matters and that is what value the "self" places upon "self"

    majority would be GOD, one GOD and we up on that too!

    I watch us express all of the above intelligences combined daily, however innocently applied

    they take what someone else "does", give it a name

    i would say fat and dumb by deed

    ignorant by nature

    but these are just factors in applied mathematics

    they learning the math, but who's doing the math?

    My country tis of thee,
    Sweet land of liberty,
    Of thee I sing.
    Land where my fathers died!
    Land of the Pilgrim's pride!
    From every mountain side,
    Let freedom ring!

    GOD BLESS AMERICA!!:em2300:
