Here is a pretty good video about how screwed up our education system is.

I am in a private school. I am in the 8th grade and I am taking geometry. Personally I learned both the normal way for multiplication(3rd or 4th grade) and the lattice way(5th grade). When I first learned the lattice way I used it a lot because I thought it was pretty cool how it worked. I then figured out how much longer it took, and I have never used it again.

Personally I have never really seen to many of the problems that you guys are talking about, although I never have been to a public school, but I beleive that if you have enough time to teach the normal way in a private school then you should have enough time to teach it in a public school.

Wow that's freaky because I am also a M.J.McDermott.....and I wanna be a teacher haha

I think the entire educational system needs to be revamped. Which is what they are trying to do with all these cute methods but they overcomplicate things. Education should be simplified, not made more complex.

Also, I think the structure of classrooms is not at all conducive for learning. I think classrooms should be circular (a lot of teachers in NY have already caught on to this and move the desks at the beginning of class)
