As some of you may already know, I tend to get a bit opinionated. Yes, I know, it comes as a shock, but you're just going to have to learn to live with it.
One of the things that I'm very opinionated about is the state of our educational system and how screwed up I think it is. There are a ton of reasons why I think it's screwed up and a ton of things I think we could do to fix it. But rather than going on here, check out Gnuteacher. I don't agree with 100% of what he says, but darn near. And heck, what fun is it when folks agree with everything you say anyway?
