American education started to go down hill the very instant they began to run our education systems as a business and education in American was taken out of the control of educators and placed in the hands of politicians and their corporate interests. Not only is it unnecessary and dishonest for textbook publishers to charge so much of educational textbooks, it is just criminal that colleges and universities all over the country will actually change the textbook requirements in order to make...

Netbooks normally come with 160 GigaByte drives. I wonder how many people really understand how big that is? If the software that comes with the system takes up 10 gig then 150 should be free. A 500 page paperback book is about ONE MEGABYTE. So 1000 of those books would be a gigabyte. So 150,000 of those books could be stored on the hard drive. Actually that is wrong because computers use 1024 instead of 1000 but it's close enough. So strictly speaking for less than the price of one...

OK, I have to put in my two cents. The fact of the matter is that a tablet or netbook that costs $300 or less but is more powerful than a mainframe that cost $3,000,000 in 1980. I really don't think people get this. The mainframe was the IBM 3033. I took a maximum of 32 megabytes of memory and that was regarded as A LOT until around 1990. But now a smartphone comes with more than 512 megabytes. Think about that! Smartphones come with SIXTEEN TIMES as much memory as mainframes from the 80s.

Here is a KEY ISSUE. We must first recognize that the Black Holocaust is not acknowledged in the so-called culture. Here’s what I mean. When people in the mass culture think of the Jewish Holocaust, they’ve seen enough evidence to know that it was a mass scale human murder horror visited upon millions! Yes, it was a horror.

The majority of holocaust/genocide denial is purely out of sheer arrogance and propaganda psychology designed to make the Victims look like liars or exaggerators or that they deserved to be done that way if anyone does believe it is true. It is only a fringe benefit that it also serves as coping mechanism for the descendants of the perpetrators of such primal, sub-human, crimes against humanity to keep them from questioning their "leaders".

To me? Home schooling is DANGEROUS. Cuz it doesn't teach socialization to our children. And often parents are not available to assist with class or homework cuz many times they do not KNOW how to do it. You can only get so much from computer tutorials and online teaching.

If the kids are being sabotaged in grade school then what do you expect? How many children find grade school boring? I can't recall a single interesting book provided or suggested by any of my grade school teachers. But when I started reading science fiction on my own my mother told me they were "something crazy". I loaned a book to a Black woman I was trying to hit on written by a famous Black female SF author. I think it is her best book.
