TRUTH OF ALL TRUTHS: it's a waste of time and money trying to educate the bottom 50% of American kids.
The UC system, the worlds finest public university, is SWAMPED with qualified applicants and this year was turning away tens of thousands of kids that were scoring over 1800 on their SATs and carrying 4.0 GPAs.

All you need to do is provide a good education for the top 20% and you'll have more than enough people to fill all the available knowledge jobs... engineering, science, medicine, etc. Another 30% should receive vocational training for skilled labor/trade positions.

Around 8th grade is when the kids should be tested and placed on the appropriate tracks, those who don't qualify for additional education or vocational training should be turned loose to compete for minimum wage/manual labor positions.

Anyone who disagrees with this is clearly from the bottom 50%.

Stupid in America

[link to www.youtube.com]

"In just five years, the success of the Opportunity Scholarship Program has been remarkable and students have shown substantial improvement on standardized tests and in college placement. These vouchers let students leave behind a system where only 59% of students even graduate and only a fifth of those end up going to college. DC area private schools graduate close to 100% of their students and almost all of those graduates go on to college. In fact a quarter of them go to one of the top 10 colleges in the nation. DC charter schools also perform well, graduating 91% of their students and sending 83% of those graduates to college, almost 4 times the college placement rate of the DC public schools.

There are grassroots movements in virtually every major urban area where parents and community leaders — mostly of African-American or Hispanic heritage — are working to bring a program like this to their communities. They want to have more of a say in how education dollars are spent and to let competition drive improvement in education for everyone. They believe that the person most qualified to choose the best sort of school for an individual child is that child's parent.

A Senate hearing on Wednesday concluded that despite the fact that the DC voucher system was written out of the recently passed budget, it was a proven success and ought to be continued. President Obama reassured the families of the 1700 students currently using vouchers that he would see that they were at least able to keep attending their current schools until they graduate. He said that he would put aside politics and support solutions. Yet the teachers unions and the powerful education lobby are campaigning hard against this voucher system because they are afraid that it will set a precedent and encourage other school districts to open up educational alternatives for their students."

Re: TRUTH OF ALL TRUTHS: it's a waste of time and money trying to educate the bottom 50% of American kids.
I'm not from the bottom 50%, but most of my students are.

Many of them come into the 9th grade defeated and numb - from previous failures.

We set the bar high - track them into honors/AP strands and offer a lot of after school hours help. If they can't or won't do the honors/AP strand, then they take the regular (albeit still college track) classes.

This year, three of my previous bottom 50% got full scholarships to Brown, Brandeis and Georgetown Universities.

75% of the others were offered placements and scholarships at other universities (state and private).

So - I'd rather not "throw" them away so early in the game.
I'd rather give them an opportunity to meet high standards, give them all the help they need to do so, and let them then decide where they want to go in life: college, technical schools, military etc.

I agree with the first part (especially with teachers being the least important.) But, I've had success with kids with the bad attitude turning around. So, as pollyanna-ish as my belief is, I still think they can be helped (mine have been and I don't work in a charter school). However, I respect your opinion and agree with the 3 factors.

For those interested in ‘education’ I suggest you read John Taylor Gatto and in particular, The Underground History of American Education. Schooling is a huge waste of time, talent, energy, and creativity.

additional reads:
Diane Ravitch, “No Child Left Behind”, And The Racial Achievement Gap’s Kryptonite Cause, By Steve Sailer

the whole school "system" SUCKS <imo>
We get the powers over us that we've earned collectively. Humanity, as a whole, is self-interested, shallow, ignorant, violent and immoral; small wonder, therefore, that our leaders (secret or otherwise) reflect that. You want better leaders, become better people.

I come from an intelligent family without a history of higher education.

My father was an entrepreneur/skilled trade worker.

He dropped out of College, and never attributed those few College credits to his success in life.

If you work hard, you'll become successful, whether you work hard studying for a degree, or go out into the real world and get a job.


I'm very well spoken, and love to read.

Yet, in High School my grades were average, at best. Nearly every lesson plan was busywork. I used to cut class 'cause I was bored.

Instead of sitting around analyzing the deeper meaning of Huckleberry Finn, for like, the ninth time, I'd rather have been working at a job, learning skills I might actually use in life.

I remember, my school cut the funding for cooking class, due to teacher's union politics.

Only recently, did I learn how to cook.

I wonder - how many teens my age don't know how to cook?

Although; I'm sure they can write a kick---- essay analyzing the deeper meaning of Huckleberry Finn!

BS, and just because I disagree does not mean I'm in the bottom 50%. Having an education does not equal living a good life. The finest universities are always swamped.

If you only give education to the top 20%, then the other 80% will not get an education. That is 80% of the population uneducated in a country. That would not keep the country competitive on a global level.

Running people by their numbers may be efficient but it is not effective in the big picture. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts, remember that.

From a centralized planning standpoint, this is correct. However, since the US started providing free public education in the 1800s, it has been a tenet of US culture that all children deserve a chance to be educated toward the career of their choice. And indeed, there are examples of people diagnosed as retarded, severely learning disabled, etc. who have gone on to earn advanced degrees. (Actually, Einstein was labeled retarded in elementary school, but that was in Europe.)

So the US does what it believes is correct and not necessarily the most efficient.

I'm not from the bottom 50%, but most of my students are.

Many of them come into the 9th grade defeated and numb - from previous failures.

We set the bar high - track them into honors/AP strands and offer a lot of after school hours help. If they can't or won't do the honors/AP strand, then they take the regular (albeit still college track) classes.

This year, three of my previous bottom 50% got full scholarships to Brown, Brandeis and Georgetown Universities.

75% of the others were offered placements and scholarships at other universities (state and private).

So - I'd rather not "throw" them away so early in the game.

I agree.
If parents become lazy, thinking the educational system will take care of their kids, they are delusioned.
Parenting includes teaching and maintaining active support, allowing for opportunities for children to question, to strategize, to figure things out. THAT should be the enticement.

I pose questions to kids all day long in our office. I ask them to tell me what they think and why.

I read to them and help them phonetically spell a word. I took time out of my busy schedule just the other day with a plump little 4 yr old girl, who eats lots of sugar and has immature language ( baby talk ) and I helped her form her letters on paper I lent her. I told her to work on certain things and lo and behold, her grandmother told me weeks later, she was! That she spent long minutes focusing and practicing. All these kids need is loving teaching attention and kudos for any small effort.

We have thrown so many worthy minds under the bus. All because of lazy family situations, parents who are more concerned with their selfish strife and money and work and what happened to leading by example as well? Do parents read? Do they encourage the child to help them read a recipe? Do they make sure the computer softwares have educational systems for them to learn by instead of game playing? Do they buy educational games at the store or mindless ones?

It HAS TO START IN THE HOME!
