feels great (500 jumping jack will do that)! Ready to exercise my mind in day 2 of the PCPR conference on education (or lack thereof). Sobering statistics - 60% of all American students are below proficient in math in science (STEM), among black students the failure rate is 80% and among latinos it is 90%. Reasons for this failure - 1) A shortage of properly trained STEM teachers - "A 2010 study
by the National Center for Education Statistics found that nearly one-third of physics and chemistry teachers in public schools don't hold degrees or certificates in those fields. An additional 35 percent of math teachers don't have math degrees. In comparison, 85 percent of English teachers have English degrees."
2) EXPECTATIONS - By middle school, most countries begin teaching chemistry, algebra, physics and geometry. In the U.S., middle-school curriculum consists primarily of a review of arithmetic and studying life science and Earth science.
3) UNPREPARED - A lower rate of students in the U.S. enter college prepared for STEM coursework and degrees, experts have said. and students do not pursue STEM in college. According to estimates from the National Academy of Sciences, for every American student receiving an engineering degree, about eight students receive engineering degrees in China and about five earn degrees in India. STEM jobs contributed 50% of the GROSS DOMESTIC PRODUCT of the U.S. Without taking an interest in the EDUCATION of our children NOW, WE(Parents) leave a dull future for them...

is keeping it simple! They say "Simplicity in life cannot be achieved without honesty. Honesty can live without simplicity, but simplicity cannot live without honesty."
