I love him saying....”Make sure there are computers in the classrooms.....and that they work” Like duh!!!!
I would argue that computers have no place in the classroom K-12.
after this clip, I am so glad I didn’t waste my time watching the actual event. What a bore. The dude sitting in the other chair looks so awkward. What a mess of an event.
I would argue that with the advent of the computer, and the internet, there's little or no need for the classroom.
I thought that all his tweets would be handled by his “peeps”, however, with this response I know it is coming directly from dumbass Obama directly.
It was better than Ambien. The Twitter guy almost made Barry look masculine.
The computer doesn’t teach anyone how to think, it is merely a tool for research. As good as that may be, relying on it to teach youngsters is foolish.
I don’t need leftist NEA members to teach my kids how to think. They already know how to do that, even the ones who are under five years of age.
Not what I’m saying. Schools should be run at the township level of government...and townships would hire teachers far more accountable to the parents within the township than the present system where the Feds have some sort of unconstitutional say in the matter.
That’s the way it used to be. That’s what the school board is for. The board members (parents) used to be the ones to determine curriculum...now it’s the state/federal governments. THEREIN LIES THE RUB!
And stop the "You all MUST take a second language."
Computers are an unnecessary expense for township schools. Kids learn better without them. Computers are a great technology and thinking kids will master them quickly when they need to...teach them to think first.
Great. But big barns to herd the kids into to institutionalize them are still obsolete.
I’m certainly in favor of homeschooling before even the township schools....but the need for homeschooling would be far less evident when townships were providing education with NO outside (read County, State or Federal) intervention.
At least no snow days
At least no snow days
Well, relying on the brain-dead union-thug teachers to teach critical thinking is equally foolish.
This sounds like a job for the parents...or the prisons.
I bet Steve Jobs was somewhere grinning
“I dont need leftist NEA members to teach my kids how to think. They already know how to do that, even the ones who are under five years of age.”
The problem is that schools used to teach kids analysis and critical thinking, which they need to learn just as we did. Now, schools at all levels are made up of the Lefties you mentioned, and instead of teaching kids HOW to analyze and critically think (for themselves), these shameful (but powerful) “teachers” are telling kids WHAT to think.
“I would argue that computers have no place in the classroom K-12.”
What are you, some kind of Neanderthal? The teachers will TAKE YOUR HEAD OFF if you say that in public.
For if you get rid of computers, teachers will actually have to teach...something they’re generally unable to do these days, due to their ideological handicaps.
“And stop the “You all MUST take a second language.” “
I’m ok with the second language part...otherwise how would half of the kids learn English?
TRUE STORY!We’ve had middle school kids come into our district that spoke no English. They were proficient in Spanish. They were put in a French class because state regs said they had to be in a foreign language class. Go figure !
LOL...there’s a LOT MORE of that (i.e., non-English primary instruction) going on than Americans are led to believe.
We would be HORRIFIED if we found out just how much.
“Computers are an unnecessary expense for township schools. Kids learn better without them. Computers are a great technology and thinking kids will master them quickly when they need to...teach them to think first.”
But how is Apple going to get paid back for all their support of Obama and the gay agenda?

You are absolutely correct. Check out this TED video:
I just completed two webinars, mandatory education for my license. The courses were excellent. The "teacher" became the monitor. The interaction and connection to the subject remains the driving force.
My problem is: In every case where I have met the child, they lack social interaction skills....there are no sports, no music....I'm not sure they'll make it in the USA.
Whoops...My post is referring to home schooled (via computer) children.
