Why Math Might Be The Secret To School Success : NPR Ed : NPR
"There's plenty of evidence on the long-term importance of preschool. But why math? Morris says a 2013 study by Greg Duncan, at the University of California, Irvine's School of Education, showed that math knowledge at the beginning of elementary school was the single most powerful predictor determining whether a student would graduate from high school and attend college. "We think math might be sort of a lever to improve outcomes for kids longer term," Morris says."

Ido Portal - A few points on how we develop our approach to...
I remembered a post that Ido made on his wall saying something like "Even though I don't always agree with Nassim Nicholas Taleb, this thing he says about doing something without necessarily knowing or worrying about the underlying mechanisms is so correct. My system applies it and relies on students to just trust the process." or something like this. Come to think of it, it might have been Taleb who posted it to his wall, but I don't know how I thought Ido had anything to do with it.... ============== In searching for this, I came across these 4 posts (bookmarked+3 below), but from a cursory glance they are not the post I was originally trying to find. ============== 3 more: ============== https://www.facebook.com/portal.ido/posts/623667224341928 ============== https://www.facebook.com/portal.ido/posts/560498487325469 ============== https://www.facebook.com/portal.ido/posts/583390915036226

How Memory Works: 10 Things Most People Get Wrong — PsyBlog
Lots of these tips have to do with teaching or learning. For example, in #9, it states:
"But, in the long-run this kind of mix-and-match learning works best.

One explanation for why this works is called the 'reloading hypothesis'. Each time we switch tasks we have to 'reload' the memory. This process of reloading strengthens the learning."

Seth's Blog: Back to (the wrong) school
"Part of the rationale to sell this major transformation to industrialists was that educated kids would actually become more compliant and productive workers. Our current system of teaching kids to sit in straight rows and obey instructions isn't a coincidence--it was an investment in our economic future. The plan: trade short-term child labor wages for longer-term productivity by giving kids a head start in doing what they're told."

Change The Schools, Change The World : A Miracle A Day
I believe that a lot of the negative things in the U.S. and in the world come from the fact that children are no longer taught how to be an adult. One of my passions is to build an alternate school system in the U.S. that actually teaches kids the things they will really need one day: money management, debate, SELLING themselves, being remarkable, NOT waiting to be told what to do.
