    The irony of this. I can't even.

    I had a snarky remark typed up but... Yes. Clearly.

    the education process should go online.

    clearly some communities need help.
    for example
    Jefferson County in Colorado wants to modify American History to make it less tolerant of "radical behavior".

    Oh, "radical behavior", such as, I don't know, declaring yourself an independent country from your founding one?

    Great, an American History course that teaches that declaring independence isn't good...can't wait to see how that goes over.....

    in my opinion, it actually went over better than expected for the instigating board of education; they are still in office.

    In order to get federal assistance, the emperor has already mandated common crap (oops core) also known by many as "Race to the bottom" as advised by my brother and cousin who are teachers.

    Judging by the punctuation, grammar, and syntax of your statement, I can't help but agree.

    We already think and talk the same, despite the great distances that separate us. We all go to the same stores, buy the same clothes, eat the same food, and live in suburbs that look the same. Yes, we should make our world even more bland than it already is by instituting a national curriculum (and besides, nothing says "freedom" quite like everyone being forcibly fed the same information and beliefs dictated by Washington bureaucrats).

    i occasionally chat with a tenant's high school child, super smart. odd the child cant drive, stays home all day playing games. goes out side only for a intro physics class at Denver University.

    goes to school on line, takes the lite rail into town for that physics class and attends testing at his alternative high school. The neighborhood school is very rough.

    the child insisted trying out on some of the apartment drywall repair; the a plumbing froze. Too bad the child cant afford to go to college after high school. this is my section 8 rental.

    I think school is a big waste of time, unless we get to design our own curriculum and choose what to learn. Why do I have to spend time on English when I already speak it? Why do I have to take math when I don't need it in my future career?

    A national curriculum seems to be the opposite of personalized choices.

    Who doesn't need math?! And as evidenced by the posts on this site alone, it's quite obvious there is more to know about English than speaking it. icon_rolleyes.gif

    maybe some part of english class has to do with learning arguments and stuff? but then that could just as well be a separate "Logic" class or "Philosophy" class LOL

    (and yes you'll need those two for at least career and/or life)

    There might be a few exceptional high-school students who are capable of designing their own curriculum. The high-school I work at allows these students to earn credits by taking their own online courses, in addition to the conventional courses.

    But allow the average high-school student to design his or her own curriculum ? God help us all.

    I bet one of the demands would be introduction to pornography with mandatory labicon_lol.gif

    I think a core curriculum should come from the federal level, but there may be some regional specific things that are beneficial.
