First, how many 5 year old children sit still for any length of time? If they do, they are probably ill.

The education readiness problem lies with the parents and no reference is made toward addressing that situation.

My children could add, subtract and do simple multiplication and division and could also read books with words up to 6 letters and without pictures when they started kindergarten. The key is patience and motivation.

Education is foremost the duty of the parents and only secondarily that of teachers. Were it not for the ability of our forefathers to educate their offspring we would be mostly a bunch of ignorant dolts today.

I was at a semi self serve restaurant on "seafood" night and the line was moving toward the pre pay cash register where the young lady at the register was asking if each patron wanted to add a tip. The various dollar amounts went smoothly till the person in front of me told her to add a percentage amount. Talk about a deer in the headlights! You could almost hear the gears lock up. As she began to cry, the gentleman quickly gave her the dollar amount and all was well with the world. I thought since I knew the manager that she was the best of his employees

I learned 30 years ago that you could not assume high school graduates could make change or do math and today it is truly horrible. Look at the registers in use now, some have product pictures and all calculate the change to be given back. Not all accountants are created equal too!

We have the most expensive education system in the world, it does not work and the only idea those in charge can come up with is to throw more money at it!!
