Education Ideas

Barron Trump’s school will be closed because it's not safe, but POTUS is fine risking other people's children as long as he is insulated and receives daily testing.

Some educators who cannot fully return to school this Fall are disappointed, but the health and safety of students, teachers, and staff must always come first.

I am proud of faculty members who are creating dynamic remote learning environments and are developing a new portfolio of exciting and engaging interactive experiences for the benefit of everyone involved.

POTUS44 delivers two graduation speeches. Graduating is a big achievement no matter what, but with all that the Class of 2020 has dealt with to get across the finish line, I think they’ve earned a little celebration. I hope you’ll all join me in honoring them at 2PM ET and 8PM ET.

COVID19 English and Spanish

COVID19 and the English and Spanish languages: a metaphor for our times

Consonant sounds such as the English voiceless stops p, t, and k at the beginning of words (e.g., “pat,” “top,” “kind”) are aspirated because they are pronounced with an accompanying forceful expulsion of air, similarly to the sound that occurs when we aspirate the sound has in English “hat.”

State of Confusion

Dear Mr. President-

Which is the real state and how could you fumble this one after the Superbowl?

Why did you congratulate KC Chiefs for representing the state of Kansas, when they really play in Missouri? Can you tell the difference on an American map of the USA?

While there is a Kansas City, Kansas, the Chiefs play in the far larger Kansas City, Missouri. Arrowhead Stadium is about 7 miles from the Kansas-Missouri border.

Education 101

Submitted by ub on Mon, 07/08/2019 - 13:14

Lately, I am hearing way too many people inappropriately using the word LIKE and I do not like it at all. Furthermore, our schools are not teaching the basic reading, writing, arithmetic, science and communication skills necessary to be competitive.

What follows is a basic curriculum in life that an adolescent should know before reaching adulthood. There will probably be other skills you can add to this list, so please do it.

Civics Education

USA voters cast their ballots for 435 House seats, 35 Senate spots, Governors along with a whole lot of state, local offices and issues. While folks are focused only with the US House and The Senate, the big story may be #USA Governors. @TheDemocrats may take a bunch of states, with serious implications for 2020 and the all-important issue of redistricting.

American Education

The US' top official overseeing student loans has now resigned, citing #WhiteHouse hostility to protecting borrowers. The US report cards for schools and school districts have been a sore source of controversy, which will only grow when the nation starts receiving overall grades this fall.

As the new school year approaches, voters should keep in mind that education funding remains on life support, while many schools are crumbling, but corporations received a huge #GOP tax cut, which was primarily pocketed by executives and shareholders, with little trickle down to workers.
