<< Cori, obviously you don't teach undergraduates in California. 20% of my
college juniors and seniors in a junior level class are academically

That is todays norm!

Ralph, how much of this is the result of poor schools, how much the fault of
unmotivated students?.. what other causes do you see for these results?.. any
ideas on how a transhumanist type can help change this?..or is it too late?..
i have a young daughter and frankly, if she gets the same sort of public
education i did, she's going to rather hopelessly lost. on the other hand the
cost of a private school or tutor is not something i'm at all certain i can
afford. ( tho, i realise that maybe she can't afford for me not to afford
it.:-) )
