  •  But, that's not what happens in American schools. (0+ / 0-)

    In our schools you aren't encouraged to learn Algebra, you are forced into it and if you can't do it you pretty much get to live your life at the earning potential of a GRADE SCHOOL dropout.

    Algebra as an option, Arithmetic as a requirement.  Not everyone is going to grow up and be an engineer, they really aren't.  We NEED good plumbers, carpenters, we need good Grocery Store managers.  It's OK.  It's honest work.
