America, The Clueless

Paula Reed is an articulate and energetic Colorado high school English teacher, romance novel author, and parent of two teens.  She recently posted an article on her blog called Clueless in America, discussing how mythology has replaced science and the scientific method in high school education.  If you’ve ever wondered why the young people of this nation lack the science,math, and other critical skills necessary to compete globally, I’d suggest you read her post, along with the accompanying editorial in The New York Times.

As I’m sure she says to her students, “and that is your reading assignment for today.”
