Aelric - 2015-06-08 It's a list that's been repeated for decades now. I agree with each and every one, but I don't think one of those things will happen in my career's lifetime.
gravelstudios - 2015-06-08 This is right and true, and I agree with it, but it doesn't really get to the heart of the issue. America's problems with education are really a symptom of poverty and income inequality (he touches on it, but in a roundabout way). As long as America's economic system is unfair to the vast majority, its educational system will be as well.
Old_Zircon - 2015-06-08 Yeah, this was all good practical ideas in the service of questionable ideological assumptions.
Meerkat - 2015-06-08 1. Quit with the anti-educationism.
SolRo - 2015-06-09 We don't need no book learnin', kids these days don't have any street smarts an' don't know how to follow their gut feeling!
BOOTSTRAPS FOR EVERYONE!
jfcaron_ca - 2015-06-08 I was worried this was going to turn into a tech-evangelist trying to promote gutting public schools & getting everyone into (necessarily private) MOOCs.
I'm actually reasonably happy to see people on the "left" (such as this is) crushing nuance to convince people. The right-wingers do it way too often, and unfortunately it works.
