    More money doesn't equate to better education. It's just more wasted money.

  4. with each generation there's more to assimilate in those short 12yrs..then it was 100 yrs ago or 500.
     

  5. Video games, texting, you tube, cell phones, internet...are such memory hogs.
     
  6. For instance, the quantity of scientific knowledge, as measured by the number of scientific papers, has been doubling approximately every 15 years since 1900. If we measure simply the number of journals published we find that they have been exponentially rising since the 1700s, when science began.

    It's all relative to other schools and other countries.

    The Wisconsin school system is falling behind in regards to other midwest school systems and the U.S. school systems are falling behind the rest of the world. Something here isn't working right.
