And even if there are, why would it make it harder for you to make friends with women? Why would you have trouble learning from a female teacher? Most people I know have close friends of both genders.
It really just seems like you're trying to pass of your own problems on the notion that ''women are stupid and wierd, but not me because I'm a special snowflake''
So isn't the reason really that you have autism? You can't communicate with people beacuse they're feminine? Does this also then aply to boys whom behave stereotypically feminine?
Tell me this, HOW do men and women think?
"Something's wrong with our kids's education!"
"Well, yeah, the US's Public Schools are kind of awfu--"
"It must have to do with race! Let's segregate our children by something completely aesthetic and in no way related to their intelligence or education and make things even more expensive for the state!"
...Seriously. First off, the main problem with public schools today is that parents are lazy assholes who don't take a minute out of their time to help their kids learn. The teachers are usually doing all they can, but if the parents don't make an effort the kids won't either.
Second, the funding.
Third, the teacher's unions. I have no issue with unions in general, but the teacher's unions are literally the devil. They don't allow good teachers to be rewarded or bad teachers to be punished, and generally make life miserable for everyone all around.
I agree with 2 of your statements. The funding issue, not so much. Schools have more money now than they have ever had! Its your other two arguments that are the basis for the educational problem in our country. There is also the problem that the government will come in a clean up your mess if you fail (welfare, food stamps, and every other live-off-the-taxpayer program), so there is no incentive to succeed.
That may be the case. I do not actually know the answer to that because it really doesn't matter. Students who want to learn can learn with a blackboard and old books. Teacher compensation may not be what other Master's degreed people earn, but teachers never did make bank. What teachers had was respect. Without respect, they've resorted to wanting more money. Looking at what states spend compared to their SAT scores is very telling. Vermont, Wyoming, New Jersey, New York, and Maine are the top spenders (http://blog.bestandworststates.com/2009/01/29/state-rankings-on-edu...). If the amount of money spent per student mattered that much, these states would have the highest scores, right? They don't. In fact, Maine was listed as #51 out of all states and Washing D.C. in SAT scores! Washington D.C. was 13th in spending and 50th in SAT scores (http://blog.bestandworststates.com/2009/08/25/state-sat-scores-2009...). The states with the lowest spending per student are California, Texas, Nevada, Arizona, and Utah which means they should have the lowest scores, wrong. Georgia, Florida, Hawaii, South Carolina, Washington D.C., and Maine have the distinction of being the bottom 5 states and district in the nation. In fact, Utah, the state that spent the absolute least per student scored better than 30 other states and Washington D.C. So, there is no correlation between per capita spending and educational benefits. We need to find out what actually is behind a better education and do it soon because America is being dumbed down.
...Yeah, so? Having more money than they did in the past doesn't mean that things are better. For one thing, supplies and education in general is much more expensive. For another, don't you think they would hire more faculty if they had the money?
And...no. Just, no. Shall I go into why your second part is wrong?
