RE: FW: Education - Math & Science Appropriations II

Chris, for the record I don't disagree with what you're saying here. I was
speaking more from a nuts-and-bolts standpoint, not philosophically (save
for my insistence that in the U.S., the Constitution be honored).

I think you are right-on with your assessment, in fact.

I should perhaps have clarified, that the majority of PARENTS in those
cultures do elevate learning above other pursuits. Or more precisely still,
these kids grow up knowing that education is a precious, valuable thing in
and of itself. I think if we were to try to understand why that's so, we
might catch a glimpse of what we have lost in our society here in the U.S.

Parental attitudes toward education are about 90% of what it takes.
