Ahmnodt Heare for President

Ahmnodt Heare For America… Ahmnodt Heare For You.

Education Awareness Week

President Obama has been barnstorming the country this week touting that we need to do more for education and improving math and science scores.  The talking pundits on TV have been yapping that we need more money for schools.  I think this is all hogwash.

Fundamentals in education is sorely lacking. I would prepare children for the adult world by teaching them how to talk their way out of speeding tickets and how to pass an employment drug screening.

The link above refers to my position on education.  Not only does my plan cost a lot less than any plan being tossed around in Washington, but it teaches skills everybody can use.

Here is the problem with President Obama’s idea.  A person doesn’t need math and science as much as he or she thinks.  I graduated high school in 1991.  I have yet to come across a situation when I would need how to calculate the area of a trapezoid or to use a Bunsen burner or a beaker.

Nobody is talking about the importance of balancing a checkbook, passing an employment screening, or even a way to dodge speeding tickets.  I was fortunate to learn these skills because none of these skills were taught in school.  We need to quit wasting time and money on things nobody is going to need or use and start teaching children the life skills they will need as adults.
