Teaching Math in the US
I've got three children.
One in high school, two still in elementary.
They just got their report cards the other day.
All three of them are on the honor roll, pretty much straight A students.
And I'm sure it is because I spend as much time as I can to help them learn.
Sometimes I think that just about all they know they learned form me and my wife...
If it were up to our schools, my 14 year old son still wouldn't know how the lightbulb works... but yeah, they teach them about enviromental impact of logging everyday. And about self-esteem and that everyone is special and all they have to do is their personal best... and about multicultural diversity and having two dads, and how to use condoms and never to share needles when shooting up. I kid you not!
I'm not rich enough to pay for my kids' education until they all become doctors and lawyers.
They will have to do it on their own.
But I'm trying as hard as I can to give them a good headstart, and it's not easy, because school is not helping much at all.
I like driving, not just steering.
