Any American who has
been conscious in recent years knows what a rotten job our public education system is doing educating our children. We have one of the highest standards of living ,and more resources than most countries. Yet we score lower than other industrialized societies in basic skills such as math, and science. This blogger is an example of a person who avoided most of grade school and dropped out in the 10th grade. Once I wandered into a GED testing after three days up on amphetamines (it was the seventies), and now, to make a long story less long, I have a Masters degree and a smile. And like the youth in this video, I never allowed anyone to “spoon feed” me knowledge. I was taught to respect learning by my parents. So I always pursued learning in my life experience.
