Default Re: New US dollar coin: The Americans don't know their Presidents

I think another problem with the public education establishment beyond simply teaching concepts without explaining their applicability to real life is the fact that it is now just starting to catch on to the notion that not everyone learns the same way. For generations, they have literally forced the same cookie cutter learning model on every kid, while branding the kids that cannot learn effectively within that model as "dumb," which leads back to Tony's point of pigeonholing kids into the "working class."
