Government Education—The Explanation Is More Complicated Than That Which Is Explained–23

Do not think about, write about or deal with  human behavior without determining the effects of incentives

    This is the kind of nonsense that comes forth when a system in non-accountable. Things change in education all the time. Things don’t improve.

    I see parents all the time who say, “I must be stupid. I don’t understand my daughter’s Grade 4 math.” I tell them that much of current education is a pointless jumble of  puzzles, riddles and IQ test items and that education is just an extended IQ test.

     The children are supposed to learn “deep understanding” of number facts. Strange that most of them still can’t add, subtract, multiply or divide.
