Re: The Myth Behind Public School Failure

That is a reason for a National Recommended Reading List even if it has to be created by parents. I have been hearing about school reform for as long as I can remember. But I noticed for myself in grade school that I could learn important and interesting things from books without the teachers. The trouble is that it is very frustrating because most books are crap. So if children that want to learn just had a list of great books with short descriptions of what was great about them then lots...

One of the funniest things about economics is a video I saw of Lester Thurow around 1999. He was an economist at MIT. He said the economy was in a state that he did not understand. So if he said that in 1999, why does anybody think they know what is going on now? They are talking bullsh!t and they don't know what will affect what.

I just realized the commentors here think I'm some banned poster named Xenon. I assure you I'm not. Maybe this is why you attacked me instead of actually taking into account what I'm saying. I've said nothing that deserves banning. And I'm not a troll. I came across this article that intrigued me, I researched and came to the conclusion that it's conclusions are false, and when presenting my findings in a thoughtful way I was attacked.

Wow, such racism and hatred. On most sites you'd be banned for that kind of language. I never said black men were fathering 10 children on average. I said that if you actually read the CDC report in the original post, that it states under limitations of the study, that no questions were asked to determine if the fathering applied to all of the respondent's children. Therefore the respondent COULD have 10 children, do some activity with one of them during a 4 week time frame, and be deemed a...
