SWEET AND SOUR – ICE CREAM AND IGNORANCE

By Steven David Horwich

Tweet Ignorance is not its own reward, contrary to the beliefs of the ignorant. Ignorance is a contagious blight that can cripple the lives of far more than the ignorant. Here is a simple example. A few days ago, a friend and I went out for ice cream. We drove a while to our favorite […]

Why Education is Important – Science behind Japan Nuclear Crisis

By Steven David Horwich

Tweet Our fearless webmaster, Ray Korns, sent me an email with the following in it. It contains a letter from a person with a scientific background, followed by explanation from an MIT scientist about what happened and is happening in the nuclear reactors in Japan, which contradicts and clarifies much of what you’ve been hearing. […]

A letter to an “older” student

By Steven David Horwich

Tweet I received a post on our Yahoo Group from a mom with an obviously very bright son named Bennett. He’s at the end of his “High School” career and is a writer. He’s decided to continue his education at home, for some years to come. Fortunately, mom is thrilled as he sounds like a […]

By Steven David Horwich

Tweet I haven’t written anything about education for this blog over the past week. It just didn’t seem like the right thing to do, with the various emergencies occurring in the world.

Schools – Fortresses of Uncreativity

By Steven David Horwich

Tweet A teacher whose name we shall not mention (Natalie Munroe) writes a vicious blog, calling her students all sorts of vile names. A high school fires its staff in Rhode Island. Then, that fair state fires an entire school district. Teachers unions are openly attacked by the governor of Wisconsin, and only teachers and […]

To Teacher Union Or Not To Teacher Union, That Is The Question

By Steven David Horwich

Tweet I’m not very interested in politics any more. I used to be when I was young and believed that most people, even those I disagreed with, were at least idealistic. I believed that politics was as it promotes itself to be, “the art of the possible”. I’m better now. Politics is most certainly not […]

A Woman Issues Her Educational Curse

By Steven David Horwich

Tweet A woman named Katherine responded to the last story, but unfortunately her response was lost in Internet limbo. It basically said that my last article (about Providence, Rhode Island firing its teachers) was idiotic (the most idiotic she’d ever read), and that she hoped that the schools all closed so that parents would have […]
