I'm a Catholic, but not a creationist. That said, I think this sentiment is a bit silly by Bill. Of course they are going to teach their children as will you teach your own. What I think the world lacks here is tolerance for opposing views. And I don`t see that gap closing anytime soon, rather I see the gaps between people widening further.

You can lead a kid to knowledge, but you can't make him think.

I dont know, perhaps this is cynical, but if you really take a step- back and look at our society and where its heading. Does quality mass education really matter? Seems to me with automation and a few geniuses in the right places. The rest of us only need the educational level to read cereal boxes and determine which button to press at the gas pumps. As long as the masses can drone in synchronicity with texted twitter posts and You- Tube kitten-Bieber videos while sitting in a soft office chairs with a sucrose drip. They will just be complacent and purchase stuff.

itchy_koolie-The US education system is a "failing, misguided system" because we don't properly fund the programs

The US spends $15,171 per student each year. That is more than any other developed nation. Switzerland comes in second at $14,922 and goes all the way down to Mexico`s $2,993. The average amount is $9,313.

In terms of percent of GDP, the US is above average at 7.3% (average is 6.3). Denmark topped the list at 8%.

So it`s not a `lack` of funds, but the crappy product we`re purchasing.

itchy_koolie-[quote]or care what we pay the people who teach in them. [/quote]
Actually we do care.

Oh, we don`t care about teaching them how to read, do basic math or comprehend physics. But the `plan` is to have the students with the highest self-esteem. After all, everyone gets a trophy so every`s a winner. Right?

Self-esteem and $5 will get you a Grande` Caramel-Frap, Lite w/Cream at Starbucks.
