"A child's learning is the function more of the characteristics of his classmates than those of the teacher." James Coleman, 1972

. . .a pupil attitude factor, which appears to have a stronger relationship to achievement than do all the “school” factors together, is the extent to which an individual feels that he has some control over his own destiny. James Coleman, 1966

Chopping off the STEM

Let's urge all our children to become scientists, technologists, engineers, and mathematicians (STEM), and then let's import foreign scientists and engineers, mathematicians and technologists, while continuing to off-shore as many of those jobs as feasible. This will surely create the needed oversupply that guarantees low pay and benefits for domestic and foreign workers, alike, while generating high profit margins for Oracle and Microsoft. Perfect.
