This Blog Will Soon Be Outsourced
It's a little odd, but when I hear the reports about how U.S. schoolkids do so crappy on math and science compared to kids from other countries, I start to feel guilty: a wave of math anxiety washes over me -- I'm right back in fourth grade, walking up to the board to do some nasty long division, with decimals. That is to say, I have this feeling that our poor scores might somehow be my fault. I'm sorry, everybody.
