Spency, mostly I agree with you.  There was just one thing that I wasn't quite 100% on board.

Quote:

Also, I can tell you first hand, modern standardized curriculums like the IB Diploma that are centrally moderated, are beyond anything our parents ever saw in high school. School curriculums such as the IB Diploma are so vigorous and difficult, that I cannot even begin to understand how we can justify a comparison of todays pupils to previous generations.





I looked up the IB Diploma.  I wasn't familiar with the term. That does sound rigorous.

I don't know much about standard curriculum in my parents day but my father could speak Latin, do trig in his head (still helps my step brother with his home work), had computer skills and experience, he could type, and he still has a vastly superior knowledge of geography and better understanding our political system than I currently have.  His grammar and spelling outstrip me too.  Although I'm sure I've passed him in reading classic American literature now, he ready more classics than I did in high school.  I'd be willing to bet he could list all of the American Presidents from the first to the last at the time of his graduation.  Also he was skilled in carpentry, basic plumbing, and small engine repair by the time he left public high school.  Those don't seem like low standards to me.  In fact, compared to most of the people with whom I graduated, he was much more educated.

Then again both of my grandfathers left school in the 8th grade to go help on the family farms.  Both of them eventually entered trade fields and worked hard jobs and farmed all of their lives.  They lived in a time when blue color work meant having a comfortable life.

Also I'd like to point out that being scholarly isn't a new vocation.  Nor is the study of complex and difficult concepts.  I point to the Empires of Ancient Egyptions, Mayans, Chinese, and Romans.  Medications, waste disposal, clean running water, and even electricity.  We've been thinking hard for thousands of years.  So I submit to you that it is perfectly natural.

I agree scholarly work wasn't meant for everyone.  The world needed more ditch diggers in days gone by.  So yes forcing the square peg in to the round hole isn't a great fit.  If the world runs out of square holes and all you have left is a bad fit, then life is going to be a struggle for the square pegs.  So you try to reshape them early. 

Finally so that I haven't totally jacked this thread, I'd like to add a Thank you to the original poster of this thread.  Food for thought.  Speaking of which I'm considering pitching my bowls and bongs and just eating my weed from now on.  It's less conspicous in public and I kind of like it better anyway.

That's a really good point, and I did not think of this.

My parents always commented on how advanced my school work was in comparison to theirs when they were in high school. :shrug:

So perhaps things are a little different educationally across the pond.

Then again, thinking hard and being innovative is different to being expected to absorb massive amounts of information. However, perhaps it is not solely due to our educational expectations of people that are causing some of these problems, but rather just the general bombardment of information and technology that exists today.

Yeah and yes I don't think the curriculum is necessarily harder but focuses on much more advanced principles i.e. we put kids in computer labs with only basic typeing because it is taken for granted that they can already type effectivly, or to use a car analogy our fathers were learning about carb'ed old mopar motors and last time I was in auto shop class they had a BMW hooked up to the computer.

But to bring this again back to the original topic again I submit that the problems we are seeing in our school stem from the same viewpoint that insists on keeping pot illegal.

I have taken some drugs and behavior courses.. Marijuana is a schedule 1 drug meaning ( it is violently addictive) Along with Heroine , that right the same area as heroin, It says in my text book that it is more addictive than benzos, coke, Md ma Ect.. It bologna , It also says in my textbook, there are really no longer term side effects, unless you are doing it every single day and in that case you could have some lung issues. In which case dont smoke such harsh weed, Some say it kills brain cells, It doesn't, It just basically adds on To cells in different areas of your brain. In which case I should mention, Sneezing kills brain cells, so therefore orgasming kills brain cells, Cause a sneeze is just 1/Th of an orgasm.. thank you very much

You know that in the textbook of some people, smoking marijuana kills people & finance terrorism?

imho.

unless you were born with an actual debilitating disorder -- i personally believe no one should smoke/drink any kind of mind-altering substance until they're at least a minimum age of 21.

otherwise, you're really only cheating your own body chemistry and i think it's unfair to your mental health.

The only thing I think needs to be adressed is Radiactive Marijuana. Shroomery banned me for trying to spread VITAL info to others about this.

Marijuana will suck any kind of radioactive particles out of its growing medium and concentrate it. So all Im saying is beware of marijuana grown outside Especially in the PNW, BC.

When I worked in policy reform there was one thing I noticed, it's not so much these truths that prohibitionists deny... it's the IDEA of marijuana itself that they don't like.

When it is legalized I believe there will be an initial spike in usage which is then tapered off to pre-legalization levels of use. 

Honestly, I don't think much will change except for less people in prison and a more sensible society.

Okay maybe that's a lot of change :-)
