Best of Me Symphony #67 is Up.
Gary at The Owner’s Manual has posted the latest collection of 60-day or older posts for our review. If this picture doesn’t draw your attention,
I don’t know what would. (If it weren’t for the cup sizes, I’d think that was a Michelle Malkin / Ann Coulter grudge match.)
In the recurring theme here of “Our Collapsing Schools,” I also strongly recommend Durrr from the blog Sakrata. Excerpt:
Where are the education standards? How come the elementary, middle, and high school teachers that taught these people still have jobs, and how come these students never had to take their classes over again until they learned how to form a sentence? When I was in elementary school, if you didn’t grasp a concept, it was 3rd grade for you all over again until you managed to get a grip, or were sent to the school across town that specialized in difficult cases. How come these students in college don’t have full schedules this semester of remedial English and composition classes so they aren’t unleashed on society with Frankenstein-esque writing skills?
The answer comes in the next paragraph. And the conclusion is spot-on.
Gary’s idea of recycling oldies-but-goodies is an excellent one. The blogosphere is rightly oriented towards the here-and-now, but the internet provides us a photographic memory, and we ought to employ that power as much as possible.
