America's Math and Science Future


Most American colleges and universities teach politically liberal philosophies. When we wonder where Mr. Obama and his  supporters learned their far left political ideas, we have only to look as far the schools they came from.

A student's education  forms the foundation of his knowledge. It should be no surprise that left liberal biased teachers will produce left liberal students. 

The teaching of MATHEMATICS and THE SCIENCES are usually free of political and philosophical biases.  Interestingly, the modern world has come to value these subjects as major enablers of progress. Sadly, compared to other nations teaching MATH and the SCIENCES, America is not providing students with a competitive education. This is a definite problem and we don't seem to be addressing it.


HERE'S LOOKING AT YOU KID

Among all nations our High School Graduates rank 14th in MATHEMATICS.

They rank 15th in the SCIENCES.

Among to other nations the starting wage of our primary school teachers ranks 5th.

And spending on EDUCATION as a percent of GDP, America ranks 37th.

These statistics indicate that our educational system is not as good as it could be. If it is not improved,  America will continue to fall further behind.

There are other statistics that indicate most American HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES are not prepared to do college or university work.  Many colleges and universities  have to offer remedial (high school) classes for the student's freshman year. This does not speak well of our INTERMEDIATE and HIGH SCHOOLS, which is where our higher education problems begin. 

It is a particularly significant handicap for those students who wish to further their education in MATHEMATICS and/or the SCIENTIFIC STUDIES.

We all know that there are serious problems with ou American political system. The federal government and national media have been telling us that we continue to lead the world in just about everything. Unfortunately, we do not. Measuring our status against other nations is difficult as it entails comparison of different attributes and characteristics. Comparisons are, at best, crude.  Surely, if we look, it's clear that America is no longer dominant among the world's communities. 


For decades following the 1929 economic depression, America has enriched foreign industries at the expense of our own. We have subsidized foreign military powers while allowing the depletion of our own. We've defended other nations borders while, at the same time, not defended our own. We've spent trillions of dollars to subsidize unworthy governments, and let our own infrastructure to fall into disrepair. 

The use of our economic power as a diplomatic tool may have been the correct thing to d…

What Comes Next- And When

The speed of progress is astounding.  Watching television a few days ago I listened to Mark Cuban talk about subjects that I know little about. It was fascinating. He started with cars. Automatic cars. Driverless cars. Cars that think for themselves. All of which ended with a conversation about "artificial intelligence". Frankly, some of the discussion went right over my head. 
He began talking about the growth of computer knowledge and abilities that will result in the power to exponentially grow. Ultimately the amount of knowledge will exceed that of human beings. At that point "artificial intelligence" will control human beings. 

Mr. Cuban stopped there and asked "when this happens in the future, and it will, where will human beings fit in the composition of the universe".  
Several brilliant minds have been working on the answer but no consensus exists - except one. The transition from the dominance of human beings on earth will end will be be replaced b…

Donald (I am not a clown) Trump

I'm eighty years old. Several Presidents have come and gone. Some good. Some not so good.come and go. A few were excellent executives and a few were not. 

Now, out of the blue, comes Donald Trump. The Democrats cheer and the Republicans go back ask themselves 'what just happened'? 

The Democrats watch their candidate turn to dust. Dishonesty and corruption laid her to rest. Bye bye Hillary.

America has endured eight long years of the radical, liberal and  progressive politicians. Our sleepy nation finally agreed that they were attempting to destroy America. Our character, traditions, Constitutional government and international stature were sliding faster and faster toward big government socialism. The foundation of our freedoms that we worked so hard to establish were being undermined before our eyes. 

Our recent President Obama gave us eight years of faulty direction. He trashed the government with misguided appointments that steered America onto the ultra-liberal shoals.
