John Stossel: Salman Khan and Joel Salatin

Here is a nice Stossel clip of the heroic Khan Academy, and how kids are smitten with his free teachings. Be sure to watch Stossel tonight when he talks to Joe Salatin and why Americans no longer have the freedom to eat the foods of their choice.

    Too bad that all those lottery buying fools didn’t first watch Khan’s Mega Millions Jackpot Probability here.

    Oh well, there could be worse things than the Kahn Academy…like the Gulen Charter schools popping up around the US/ Canada and Australia, Africa and more. At least, Kahn isn’t from what I can see, trying to infiltrate a moon god’s agenda into his free schooling. Rather be doing math via Kahn under a crescent moon, than to be under a crescent moon banner reminding me that Islam centuries ago brought the world algebra, but somewhere in the interim lost their edge and calculator and ability to keep up with the rest of the world, hence, their newfound desire and determination to usurp american education and show the rest of us Who Is Really on Top of the World.

    With Fetullah Gulen reigning from his perch in the Poconos, he continues his stealth charter school movement through out the US while Americans sleep. But not to worry, it’s hard to keep an eye on two balls, the other one being his hold on Turkey, the military, police and keeping honest Turk journalists in prison for daring to name the beast. BTW, our tax dollars are paying for these schools to spread..and to spread their doctrine of hate for the US, and we, the infidels.

    Thanks for the link to the lotto video, Jeannie. Always good to brush up on my probabilities. (Although, for the purposes of illustration, it would have been good – though taken longer – if he’d also included the “expected value” of each $1 lotto ticket, which would probably be mere pennies. I’m betting under a quarter, for sure.)

    Many Americans might not yet grasp how revolutionary the underground teaching methods are. Speaking for myself, I have trained myself to become a professional-caliber proficient in several computer programs, and I learned entirely through user-generated books, video tutorials, chat rooms, and message boards. There is an old colleague of mine who went to U of M (and spent probably well over six figures) to learn how to do what I learned how to do for free.

    Most of these generous “teachers” who selflessly create tutorials and answer questions – predictably – are overseas. I’d say Scandinavia is very over-represented, but it’s at least 4:1 (overseas:U.S.). And that’s just the English-speaking users!

    When these great men are compared with the six-figure college degrees and demonstratively worthless public schools, the home schooling debate is a non-starter: it IS better. (Now I just have to have some children to raise!)
