Education Articles


Getting Direct Answers is

“The Way of the Bottom Line”

In this section you’ll find articles about educational methods, as well as problems that have magnified and proliferate due to a complacent acceptance of failed education as a standard we don’t like but “have to live with.”

Most of our poor educational outcomes can be traced to the fact that schooling, as a business, is operating in a denied exit stage.

These issues, along with others, will be presented and discussed to educate you on the supposed mystery of our current situation.

The more you read, the more you will unravel the knots artfully tying up our energy with useless “solutions” that are proving to be generating problems larger than the ones they’re suppose to be resolving.

No society needs to accept a deteriorating education system as something that has to be endured; this is a preposterous concept.  I suspect it survives because so few understand the issues from the simplicity of a bottom line viewpoint.

Keep reading, this whole site is being written for you.

The articles are written for your enlightening pleasure.

It is my intention that you’ll discover answers you’ve been searching for, and they will be simpler and easier to implement than you’ve been led to believe.  Of course, we strip away all the hidden agendas to get to the bottom line, and viola!  A way out of this mess is revealed.

All to Love,

This has had an unfortunate effect of making an oppressive impact on teaching by destroying teachers’ freedom to create learning friendly classrooms and to teach using the best pedagogy we know exists. Couple this learning-teaching gap with outrageous paperwork reporting mandates, and it all adds up to...
