The way we do evaluations is ridiculous. Rather than worrying about student bias, I think we should be worrying about our own badly designed evaluation system.

I disagree. They probably should listen much less to rich people simply because money means you can buy your concerns out privately or leave.

We are doing students a big disservice by assuming that they can’t grasp industry-standard languages and complex computer science topics.

I strongly agree with this: I don't think you ever should teach the "kiddie" version of stuff to kids. Let 'em go at it straight up.

So he's voting for Trump just so that he doesn't have to feel shame in expressing his views, which are often criticized as racist or xenophobic? What a narrow-minded fool.

quote: For the uninitiated, conservation compliance can be explained like this: It’s a way for taxpayers to be sure that, in exchange for farm support payments, farmers are meeting a minimal threshold for avoiding environmental harm. Conservation compliance has applied to almost all USDA support programs since 1985, and the 2014 Farm Bill expanded compliance requirements to the federal crop insurance program, which has grown over the years to be the biggest farm support program. Conservation compliance is not onerous for farmers, most of whom have been subject to the requirements for years.

But a report issued in March by the Office of the Inspector General (OIG), which serves as the internal watchdog at the USDA, outlined a serious problem with the enforcement of conservation compliance. Many tracts of land that were subject to compliance were not being included in the random checks performed by the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). In fact, in 2015, the first year after the new Farm Bill was passed, ten states—including major agricultural hubs like Illinois, Iowa, and Minnesota—had zero tracts subject to random compliance checks. That’s right. Zero. In Iowa!

My Postings:

My public posting mostly falls under the category of "Links to News Jennifer Finds Interesting".  Lately, my interest has gravitated to the US dysfunctional political system, theories of economics, and the state and future of US healthcare, with occasional lapses into educational reform, new scientific discoveries, jokes about grammar and spelling, and atheism vs. religions.
