American citizenship or being a citizen of Heaven

If you had a choice between being an American citizen or being a citizen of Heaven, which would you choose?

Citizen of Heaven = Thumbs up Citizen of America ...more »

The Tree of Obama

"You will know a tree by it's fruit." Matthew 7:16 The Obama Tree is a black Oak. The leaves protect the tree from the light of truth. The bark is hard and callus to prevent transparency. The fruit is the ACORN, to reproduce itself again and again. The roots of deception go deep into the American soil.

Alternative model to improve quality of decision making

An alternative model to improve quality of decision making is not an easy concept to put into words simply. I am constantly trying to improve my decision making in teaching situations, frequently because of inappropriate techniques / methods or misjudgment of thinking/learning styles; which cause me to seek out alternative solutions. I have come across similar theories and creative change across borders probably similar ...more »

Copying our way to better school systems

Stop letting bad school systems experiment with reform. Make them imitate one of the more successful systems instead. Here's how it would work. 1. Define the demographic categories that will be applied to each school system. This would be things like the total population of students served, the relative economic status of those students, the transiency rate, ethnic mixture, etc... 2. After the demographic criteria ...more »

A New Kind of Textbook

This idea would start out with a contest. Maybe someone like the Gates Foundation could sponsor it to make it worthwhile. The contest would present a list of critical scientific concepts that every educated person should know. Contestants would then submit the simplest possible method they could think of for getting the concepts across. Methods would be categorized by visual, tactile and auditory to cover different ...more »

Staple a green card to every advanced degree awarded in the US

The US has made a *huge* investment in my education: I have both a Master's and most of a PhD from good US institutions, and neither has cost me a cent due to receiving fellowships and working as a research assistant. The US has therefore invested something like a quarter of a million dollars in me, only to send me home after my degree (because the F1 student visa is of "nonimmigrant intent"). After paying for me to ...more »
