Learning for the Real World

David Pieski, a Florida HS chemistry teacher, was recently arrested for teaching his kids how to make bombs. High school seems to have become much more interesting than it was back in my day. Evidently, Shrub's Leave No Child Behind policy is beginning to have an effect, with more teachers providing lessons that have practical application in the real world.

More like the latest addition to the NEA's "practical whole topic" approach to education. It's "progressive" NEA types that have led to a steady downgrading of our education system.
