Could. Not. Agree. More. Walking in the woods with my 16-year-old the other day, he asks, “Dad, do you ever use algebra?” Answer: No (I’m write for a living). I — no doubt like you — knew what was coming next. “Then why do we have to learn it?” Modern instruction — particularly here in the U.S. where teaching to the test is all that matter — has robbed learning (and teaching, for that matter) of all its spirit.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
