Back to School: Do the Math
It is now back to school season and that brings to mind the difference in education standards in our society. When I went to school all of my teachers (New York City Public Schools) knew their subjects inside out. If you didn’t do it right, you did it over, and that could include being left back to do a whole year over. We learned math, English, geography, history, civics and social studies, plus very active physical training. We had very little obesity, everyone could write in script and print, and everyone read to the best of their ability.
