Every since the American system has tried to model itself against measurement of an Asian system, our school capability and learning has dropped.
Because: Americans learning is not centered in memorization for the sake of test scores, but; Americans learn to feed thought, promote thought and engage thought about things, develop and embrace creativity, investigate theory and process, Improve function and capability, discuss and question objective and, premise, hold inquiry with a sense of value to discover and, uncover, and build new and innovative ways of thinking and doing things.. American Education is about expounding upon subject matter, not about memorization of dialog for the sake of test taking recall.
If we want the truth, we must, learn, believe in god’s premise of understanding, regain a sense of hope and respect for the nation as being home. We must re-embrace communication in our classrooms as well as our board rooms. We equally so should expand our ability to investigate in how education is performed and find the awareness and the temperance to indulge subject matter, where the young people can learn to embrace interactive feedback, and get rid of this short attention span. We may well need to abandon the contempt and put down responsiveness we’ve adopted as the general manner, when subject matter is brought to discussion. too often we seek nothing but pun and punch line sarcasm as our main function, and we claim that as being communication.
Such a manner has brought a nation to function as if we take so much for granted and being impatient, to the point we become ignorant in our choices and actions, which brings us to neglect the way we learn and grow as American people.
We’ve become a nation which has hailed everything foreign to our priority. We pump money around the world and cry foul at any penny spent to help American people and, uplift and rebuild America. We’ve become so obsessed in this demeanor, we ignore our own children’s schools and fund them last, after we have pushed to fund everything foreign we can.
We must get away from system based on extortion racketeering structure”
We allow American colleges to become extortion rackets against the American peoples dignity. Turning our citizens into second class human beings, all based on if they don’t claim a paid for degree as their basis of human existence Now we make it even more difficult for them to get an education, as the millionaire enterprises, we claim to be halls of higher educations. which today, have become nothing more than Corporations of another sort, which regulate who can and who can’t get a job. Many of these organization have investment and profit from sports programs, which could reduce the cost of attendance to flat rate figures for a full term. We claim it takes 4 years, when often time, students are forced to take classes which have nothing to do with their aspired aims, and could complete their primary induction into subject material in less years, if all the excess and un-required classes are extracted from the program as mandates. Learning is an ongoing process, We push the delusion that 4 years will produce a genius, just because we hinge too much on the claim of degree. We’ve become so obsessive with this cycle of process, until we have allowed these institution to dictate to general function employers, who can and who can’t get a job. It has become so absurd, until now, certain jobs are now controlled by certain university corporations. The more this cycle spins, the worst our nation becomes.
ROTE MEMORIZATION SYSTEMS
China is finding out that Rote memory training is producing many with high memorized material test scores but lack actual ability when it come to the job market and the investigative thinking it requires and, the expounding upon situation and subject matter. We as American people are a society that is built by free thinkers, for free thinking. Chinese society is not based on this premise; they are based on learning tradition and following the script of tradition and not deviating from the script.
Make a Real Nation of Equality
Why can’t American educators understand American children, and remember this very crucial fact, is because they have lost touch with what is the American way. We run around the globe talking about human rights, and criticizing other nations, and we have yet to dissolve the bigotry of racism in how we view people in this United States Republic. We have economic bigotry and racial bigotry, which dominate every city in the nation. these are the worst kind of human right abuses, because it drives people to abusively disregard others and label and create poverty centers, and then we try and blame it all on the impoverished.
The cost of opportunity today, is far less about ability and capability, but more about clique’s, paid access and extortion rate entry requirements, which often times have less to do about the nature of the work or the requirements of the job, and more to do about status markers.
America people have proven over and over, we can learn anything, and people are innovative and create in the process of their work to improve the work they do with products and services. Today, we’ve attached the claim of needing a degree to do the most basic and simple of jobs, which have very little to do with a degree. people so often in society do not even seek work in the field of their degree, they use the degree as a ‘pay elevation certificate, in a totally un-related field from that which they claim to hold certificate of degree.
We must open the doors of schools without the extortion rates current existing. When we take banks out of the equation and let the government provide the lending, then people won’t get stuck with 100-200K school debt. this is how tax money goes to benefit the public who pays the taxes. People will repay the loans, because then the government can regulate the fact that people get the education they pay for.
No child in this nation should be denied nor be faced with a maze of madness to go to higher education organizations. a bachelor degree should be a bachelors degree, not based on which school it was attained but the fact that it is attained. it should require no less than one year of actual work in the field of study. and all of such type of degree should carry equal weight in its claim of being a degree. The same applies to any other degree. A Masters degree should not be issued in any field, until a person has put in 5 years of work in that particular field. You can’t be a Master at something you’ve never done. Then work credits go toward this claim of master degree status. and people who claim this status of degree actually know what they are doing when they claim this status. Otherwise it is simply a sham being sold by the education corporations, as un-substantiated certifications.
Respecting the capability of children
Our children can listen to a litany of words in a rap song, which speaks of multiple converging perspective, and they not only catch the flow but they identify with the connection of variables in the elements being conveyed. they don’t just memorize the words, they understand the context of what the words is describing, and they connect in their mind the situations which the context of the words flow is constructing. We discount our kids, because we are trying to make them something they are not.
American Children are American children, they are not of the Chinese or General Asian culture nor are they based in the rote memory for test sake system, who learn Memorize script, and are drilled to not deviate from tradition,
America is and will continue to be a place of innovators, innovative thinking, and exploring subject matter to expound on what it can discover. Kinds loose interest in school, because it does not discuss subject matter, it only ask and demand then to engage rote memory and deny free thinking and free association of point, variable and factors.
TERM LIMITS FOR ALL POLITICAL OFFICES
Until the stiff out of touch politicians get out of the way, we will continue to have a declining educations system. Our politicians are interested too much in ‘re-election” and will mislead the public in every way imaginable, if they think it will get them another term in high pay, big perk office. With a giant pension.
Dogma scripting must go ! We as a society MUST get back to “common sense values, and respect of integrity in social function and individual human beings.
We have too much script trained PhD’s, who become logically dysfunctional and common sense ignorant. whom push delusion as they try and contain society based on professor based script, or repeating some material that is 30 yrs old by the time they engage it in the class, then they want the student to focus on memorizing it by script, rather than learning based on exploring the meaning, expanding the understanding, and being creative with the investigated learning. they are not prompted to investigate, nor to ask question. They are often told… ‘we will get back to it later”, as a way to say shut up and just memorize. and let me get thought this pre-programmed scrip, so I can appease the Principal or the head of the organization, so congress people can play score games, to manipulate budgets.
Click this link , it gives a vivid example of a classic example of “the failure” of ‘rote memorization process”
Multinational companies in China are having a difficult time finding qualified candidates for their positions. According to a recent survey of U.S.-owned enterprises conducted by the American Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai, 37 percent of the companies that responded said that finding talent was their biggest operational problem. A separate
study by McKinsey Quarterly found that 44 percent of the executives in Chinese companies reported that insufficient talent was the biggest barrier to their global ambitions.
The explanation: a test-oriented educational environment.
China invented the keju system, which used tests to select government officials. It was a great invention because it enabled talents from across the society to join the ruling class regardless of their family backgrounds. Hence, a great meritocracy could be created. But it evolved into a nightmare for China as the system gradually changed into one that tested memorization of Confucian classics.
Keju is dead now but its spirit is very alive in China today, in the form of gaokao, or the College Entrance Exam. It’s the only exam that matters since it determines whether students can attend college and what kind of colleges they can attend. Because of its life-determining nature, gaokao has become the “baton” that conducts the whole education orchestra. Students, parents, teachers, school leaders and even local government officials all work together to get good scores. From a very young age, children are relieved of any other burden or deprived of opportunity to do anything else so they can focus on getting good scores.
The result is that Chinese college graduates often have high scores but low ability. Those who are good at taking tests go to college, which also emphasizes book knowledge. But when they graduate, they find out that employers actually want much more than test scores. That is why
another study by McKinsey found that fewer than 10 percent of Chinese college graduates would be suitable for work in foreign companies.
Chinese educators are well aware of the problems with the gaokao system and have been trying to move away from the excessive focus on testing. But seeking other valid indicators of strong academic records will take time, especially in a country of 1.3 billion people.
We had better wake up quickly and abandon this obsessive testing based system, and get back to learning the American way, by turning classroom into places where kids can engage subject matter, they can open discussion, engage exploration of subject material and expound on the concepts they are being presented. We have killed creativity, and depressed our kids, by trying to contain them into memory robots. We wonder why they have lost the spirit of interest in schools. Because they find they get brain locked by the containment of a memory for test purpose process.
Our kids today can take any gadget and figure it out better than half the adults in this nation, but we dis-acknowledge the capable and we ignore what they demonstrate by these capabilities. We are the worst generation imaginable for American educations.
Just as we are the greediest generation which destroyed the economy, by our thirst for leisure to the point we sold and gave away jobs, because people in suits told us we were no good, so they could pay themselves to turn us into clerks to push foreign goods, and consumers of foreign goods. They eroded income, down the level we can’t afford anything but cheap foreign goods, and its a cycle that support the influx of cheap foreign goods.
Pay American an American decent standard of wage to create American Products in American companies and American will buy American products produced by American people. We became a nations of fools to turn our corporations over to people based on a script trained degree, that is based on greed for the system they were taught. Prior generations had companies ran and operated by people who actually created things.
Today, we have script players using degrees, to set up elaborate pay systems for themselves and their alumni associations, and they have absolutely no respect for the American worker, nor the American investors.
Bankers proved this, and every other executive who used Tax payer money, and resumed to pay themselves for failure and rip off processes, and then give themselves another bonus for cutting benefits and diminishing wages, and shipping production out of the country. they pay the Right wing politicians, to insure they don’t have to pay tax into the American system. This is what our reliance on test based degrees has brought to this nations. Social and Economic Ignorance.
Ignorance has become so deep, we cut education and then claim it is a priority, we cut health care, because we are ignorant of the fact that a unhealthy nation is a weak nation. These are two critical elements of the ignorance we have allowed to make decision from a right wing agenda based system. They have insured that education is limited to the wealthy, and they can push their greed principle, and indenture the people, and diminish the ability of the young people to learn, by trying to turn them into script memory robots. Instead of children who can think, and do think, children who can and will investigate and expound and expand their capability and creative ability.
We have an idiot system which is closing schools rather than enhancing them. We have people who destroy communities in the process, because schools are a basic of community. Ordinal land designation always was designed to provide space and facility of schools, Our greedy and self centered status consumed generation only can think to close schools, cut education budgets and talk defeatist spills in every corner of our society. So the wealthy can gain another tax break and insure that kids become no more than memory robots, unless their parents can pay for a Private high priced school that actually engage in classrooms which actually engage students in discussion of subject matter.
We have been lulled into silence, by the people claiming degree, as if that makes them gods within society, to sell off industry, preach defeat and despair, and claim the high pay of greed for themselves, with no sense of respect for the people who actually work and perform the labors which make a nation strong.
Schools sit with un-used auditoriums, because we have no regard for cultural learning, programs and classes of music, art, crafts and sports has been tossed away, for the sake of building ‘memory robots” out of the kids, every program which teaching them how to work together, and play together and engage discovery together has been destroyed and wiped out of schools.
Empty grounds, because we have lost regard for physical education programs, tennis courts grow grass and basket ball courts have rusty rims with no net, and football fields, and tracks over-grown with grass as if its a forgotten part of the school. Teachers don’t dress to come to class, some come looking like they just walked out of their back yard lounge chair. Yet we wonder why we have un-groomed students, when they have to come to class and see teachers who have lost the respect to dress professional to be in a claimed professional position and classroom which is a suppose to be considered as a professional employees who is a teachers, office of work.
Our generation has insulted the whole system which built this nation as a high standard nation, now we are so low on the standard rating of systems, because we have lost regard for everything, which has trickled all the way down to the classroom level.
IF we were smart and all these claimed PhD were thinking, they’d know that educational funding is very much tied to homeownership. And the taxes it brings in to support schools. If they were thinking, they’d push banks to drop the rate, and provide low interest fixed rate on homes, it may even be smart enough one day, to make home payment function as simple as car payments. Then we would have homes occupied. It makes no sense for a car to be paid for in 5-6-7 years, but the same expense of home, is set up to drain the homeowner for 30 years. It is a greed program, not a home ownership program. No way should a person pay three times the value of the home in interest payments over 30 years. Those who want 30 yrs give it to them, but respect the general public and make fee simple homeownership. With fee simple rates. Then the vast amount of the people’s money would go into the economy and not to banks for 30 years. We turned our lives over to this banking criminal practice of 30 year loans, without questions.. And they have robbed the people for years upon years. If a 30-50-100k car can be paid for in less than 10 years, then so should a home be equally set up on the same premise of financing.
If we had system which work, we’d have funds a plenty to support education, health care and every other thing, and not be strapped with the cry about inflation. We’d have a system with regulatory maintenance.
We again need to think about the value of “change’ and embrace the principal of Change
