Description

We went WAY off the rails today. The discussion started with reasons women might be paid less than men, and we ended with a discussion on the antiquated learning model that is our modern education system.

There’s a better way people!!

Enjoy!

  • I have a B.A. in English and I work at an after school program. I’ve been applying for jobs and going to interviews lately and I always lie and say that I want to go back to school and get my masters and teaching credential. Actually I don’t want to do it at all. There are lots of private/alternative/co-op schools in my area and they all say that credential isn’t required (just preferred) but I’m having a difficult time gaining experience. Has anyone here tried to get into teaching without a credential? Any advice?

  • I would argue decentralized direct democracy with administrators of public will (as opposed to politicians) who would outsource the various public projects to the best providers from the free market.

  • I believe that many libertarians or liberty-loving individuals are in favor of school choice. But let us think differently here: what do you think some of the cons of school choice would be?   I got into a little discussion with someone on my Facebook page about school choice. He lives with two teachers in FL who hate it because it “just wouldn’t work,” and that’s their entire argument.   So first, how would you go about discussing school choice with teachers like that? Second, can you think of anything ‘bad’ in regards to school choice? Open discussion here. 🙂

  • I am a dance teacher with a lot experience and expertise in the field, and I find myself constantly surrounded by children who have no discipline, motivation, focus, or attention span to dig in and learn. It seems to me that the problem is bad diet, bad parenting, and I run into a brick wall not knowing what to do.  Is it reasonable to think that I, having most of the dance students for 1 or 2 hours per week, can have any effect on their development of intellect and physical intelligence? Can I really do anything about it, or should I just take whatever I can get and hope they decide to want to learn a skill sometime in the future?   I hope this isn’t too vague, I just would like advice on how to spur interest, especially in a subject that is extremely hard to learn.  Dance takes years and years of practice and focused attention to master, and even then the constantly shifting and developing body changes the course, presenting ever more new challenges.  How do you get the child to appreciate the journey?
