Mar 15th 2009 9:59PM Behind in more ways than one?
That statement is more true then that reporter knows. The American school system as a whole is behind by about fifty years, if not more. Sure we have computers now, but they are more of a distraction than a learning aid. So not only do the schools have to get with the picture as far as the current goings on in society, but they need to be able to figure out ways to teach more effectively, instead of just placating some bureaucrat just for test scores, that overall are really only used for statistical measurement, and can not really give an accurate idea of what is going on. Of course it is not the teachers fault that they are being shown substandard teaching methods in college. Nor is is the students fault, at least not most of time, just because the way the class is being taught is not compatible with their personal learning style.
Any how, the above article is indictive of a much larger problem. And it is going to take both sides of the aisle working together so solve it, or any of the other issues facing us right now.
Well any how, in relation to the article above, why shouldn't people be allowed to exercise their free will? It always has to be about someone criticizing someone else's lifestyle because it does not fit in their little box of how they think things are and should be. And instead of just accepting it and expanding their little box, they attack the other person, because they believe they are 'right' and the other person is 'wrong'. Can't we all just unselfishly love our fellow humans, despite how they live, or exercise their free will? (And I am not talking about romantic kinds of lover or anything like that, I mean like love you would have for your parents or siblings.)
I hopefully have not offended anyone with the above, if I have I am sorry, I did not mean for it to seem like I was attacking you on whatever position you hold, so please do not take it as such.
Feb 17th 2009 1:51AM Well it was made into a law to stop excessive littering through humiliation. Since every night on the news they get themselves put on the television. So if you check you should be able to find some footage somewhere.
