Well I will say one negative thing about California. The state really failed in your education. They failed big time. I mean, quoting the wrong person? In 2018? Back to school for you matey.

Don't forget the staggering numbers of students who need remedial work in college, and the high percentage of functionally illiterate people.

Not even remotely true , money thrown at the problem has failed in inner cities where the per person spending on troubled neighborhood kids is greater.

I think most would agree that substandard facilities, lack of academic materials, books that saw their best days in the early 90s, little or no heat in the winter and underpaid and overworked teachers are all demotivating.

Jesus I can't believe people still swallow this crap.  After all the money chucked at education in the West and the steadily declining discipline in inner city schools. Have you never seen that video of the kid in Africa who walks 4 miles every day to have lessons with 50 other kids in a mud hut and still studies hard? Why does little Johnny skip classes, refuse to work, swear at his teachers and threaten his classmates with violence? ? It must be because his course book is a bit out of date and his teacher only makes 60 grand a year. :rolleyes:

I've just come back from a visit to Trinity College where my students got taught by a Polish lady who didn't know how to pronounce onomatopoeia (dang I spelled it correctly in 1 go wtf  :cheesy:).
Other than that it still looked as if everything was holding up quite nicely there.
Lots of Chinese tourists though.

I can go to San Francisco or la and even live there , it’s beautiful, especially the places I go, I can avoid the filth  .  But that doesn’t mean everything is fine. 
In the uk
If you reverse the roles where the Muslim population is 80 percent and the white population is 10 percent.  But out of that white population you had the worst of the worst nazis who were actually dangerous people , then you’d want to stop them .  There are grooming gangs there are people having their houses smashed on Christmas. 
You are absolutely right .
You could go there and the probability of something happening to you would be very small, but it doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.
Not reporting on it would really upset me especially if it happened in my neighborhood.

Not demotivating enough to overcome a strong motivation for academic success.

The primary reason for this is that academic success is not seen as "cool". In other communities/countries this isn't necessarily the case. You take those students and put them in a substandard facility with a lack of materials and books, and they as students would try twice as hard and their parents would spend their off-work hours repairing the school and getting supplementary education for their children.

The key to change is to make academic achievement socially desirable to teenagers and kids, not as something for "dorks".

Comparing a video of a kid in Africa to life in the West--"I can't believe people still swallow this crap."  see De Martino's response. The fact that in your eyes, we as Westerners can't make useful comparisons to people's lives in Africa highlights your inherent racism.

First of all, my comment was aimed at your writing, which is nearly incomprehensible. At best, it's full of weird little habits of yours like putting spaces before and after commas. If you're going to be a dickhead, you should at least learn to write. And you sure do like name-calling for someone who has whined about "ad hominem" attacks in other posts. I'm not really sure where you got the "meat head" part from, but I guess I've been hitting the gym lately, so I'll take it as a compliment.

Anecdotal evidence is one thing, but the fiction you write is quite another.

Education needs to be fulfilling and personally meaningful, not just a means to an end (high test scores). For that to happen, you need motivated teachers who receive effective training in new methods and the materials to put their training to good use.

Do you have an encyclopedia of canards that you use as research for your posts?
