So on the train to DC, I happened to notice a lady writing a PowerPoint slide in front of me. I feel bad, but I can’t help but read laptops in front of me on trains/planes, especially ones with big fonts and so forth.
She spent 3.5 hours (the entire train ride while I was present, though she boarded before I did at an earlier stop) working on one slide explaining greatest common factors and factoring numbers.
When I went to school, they just wrote some numbers, in chalk, on a board, and taught things, rather than having to have pre-prepared powerpoint slide for elementary school. I think if my children were being taught basic math by PowerPoint, I would
shoot them to put them out of their misery feel bad for them.
Please folks, it’s bad enough in the corporate world, don’t fuck over your children’s education too.
