The cause for our nation's failings become so painfully obvious when a person, while in a #usedBook store stumbles across a 1923 3rd to 5th Grade Arithmetic Textbook.
For example: By the time I graduated High School, the longest math "story" problem I encounters was maybe a few sentences and required only a few answers.
In 1923, if memory serves me correctly; one of those Story-Problems was nearly 16 PAGES and had over 40 different questions that all depended on getting the first answers correct.
Some of the questions:
Yes!!! That was a 1923 math book.
That level of #Business skill is rare until you get into college these days.
A few years ago, and I do not mind telling you it was a #McDonalds hamburger shop I went into one day (after several day's buying the exact same items) I knew what the total would be. That day, the cash registers went down.
They charged me an extra $1.07
I asked if the price went up. No. It had not.
I asked if the taxes went up. No. They had not.
I asked why it was nearly $1.00 more than yesterday.
I was told that they had to calculate the bills by hand and they were supposed to ADD $1.07 to all the bills.
The tax rate was 7%
I told them that they were supposed to MULTIPLY the 1.07 to the total dollar value of items bought.
The cahsier had to call the manager. The manager had to call #CorporateHeadquaters to find out whether I was correct.
That -- is why our nation is failing; educations standards continued falling; crime continues increasing, etc... and so on.
We allowed our governments to get into our schools and control what is taught (rather not taught) and they stopped teaching us how to properly control the powers of our governments.
