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…

Cruel and Thoughtless . . .

A disheartening situation has hit our family. A cousin, one that we don't know very well, has reached 93 years of age. Most of the Chapman family made it to the mid 80's, but Mary Lou Chapman has managed a few years more. And, she's not gone yet. Mary was unmarried her entire life. She grew up in a good home, was well educated, has always hd a good job, and has enjoyed pretty good health - until just a few years ago. While she is still very much alive, I sometimes speak in the past tense as if she had already died. Mary is either confused or in her own little world now. She began losing some of her sparkle a few years ago. At first it was mild memory loss, and then mild hearing loss, and then drifting in her speech as she lost track of what she wanted to say. Her Doctor said it was a mild dementia coming on with old age, and nothing to worry about yet. A few month's passed by before she began to have problems driving herself to the market and appointments and so forth,…

Mark Turner - Another Look

MARK TURNER.  I'm an interested ex-corporate exec., now retired, and have little to contribute to this. Perhaps you can help? At first I thought Mark's story was so complicated it couldn't be true. I discovered later that  Mark's business may indeed have  generated as much money as he said it did. His story is long and complicated, but regardless of his guilt or innocence, there is definitely  something wrong with the legal process he encountered. Maggie Thornton says his business dealings were honest. I'm not thoroughly convinced, but she may be right.  There is no question that he was improperly sentenced in one court, and deserves an appeal process in another. 


I have received several comments from a blogger named "Anonymous". He (or she) has chosen to remain unknown but clearly has an inside track to information about Mark's problems. I have removed my original speculations from this blog and regret there were so many errors. Sorry folks, my fault…
