My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


Still Screamin' 

This comes to me courtesy of Guy.

Some Oregon high schools are adopting Mexico's public school curriculum to help educate Spanish-speaking students with textbooks, an online Web site, DVDs and CDs provided free by Mexico to teach math, science and even U.S. history.

I don't even know where to begin with this one. But how about these for a sample of the obvious questions:

Is the Mexican curriculum for math, science, and U.S. History superior to the one these Oregon schools are currently using? And, if so, why isn't this school district using the Mexican materials across the board?

Could somebody please--PUH-LEEEEZE--do some sort of a comparative study of the typical U.S. textbook version of the Mexican-American War to the one offered in this curriculum?

I wonder if the resources of the Mexican Education Institute would be more effective if it devoted more of their resources to educating the students IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY?

"We wanted people to be aware that they have to study," said Patricia Ramos, the director of national affairs for Mexico's Institute for Adult Education and National Advisory of Education for Life and Work.

"You have to dare to study and make use of technology because that way, it will be easier to adapt to where you now live."

. . .because we want you to stay where you now live and not return to Mexico.

But please send money.

Geez, we're stupid.
