It is a sad commentary on the state of political life in the United States that our political conventions have become more like rock music festivals than competitions of ideas. Continue reading.

June 29, 2016. Khan Academy is a small nonprofit with a big mission: a free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere.

With fewer employee's than a medium sized tax funded public school in the U S, the Khan Academy serves more than 15 million users each month with over 100,000 videos and exercises.

Khan academy is an extraordinary resource available to everyone everywhere provided at no cost to the user . It is supported by donations. It is extremely cost effective.

The cost incurred to provide the Khan Academy resources is around $10 million dollars each year. For comparison purposes, in Illinois; including pension costs, more than $30 billion dollars is spent each year while only around 2 million students are enrolled in the k-12 public school system.

How public education cripples our kids, and why

I taught for thirty years in some of the worst schools in Manhattan, and in some of the best, and during that time I became an expert in boredom. Boredom was everywhere in my world, and if you asked the kids, as I often did, why they felt so bored, they always gave the same answers: They said the work was stupid, that it made no sense, that they already knew it. They said they wanted to be doing something real, not just sitting around. They said teachers didn't seem to know much about their subjects and clearly weren't interested in learning more. And the kids were right: their teachers were every bit as bored as they were.

Boredom is the common condition of schoolteachers, and anyone who has spent time in a teachers' lounge can vouch for the low energy, the whining, the dispirited attitudes, to be found there. When asked why they feel bored, the teachers tend to blame the kids, as you might expect. Who wouldn't get bored teaching students who are rude and interested only in grades? If even that.

Who, then, is to blame?   Continue reading
