Yes, the ability to buy newer books and more immersive teaching materials can make a substantial difference in the quality of the instruction. The research we have indicates concepts like Ohm's Law are more easily understood by children whose live n less stressful environments.Are the math or physics books and lectures fundamentally different when comparing high end and low end elementary school in US (in Estonia the books are same but we are also small country)? For example, i guess that learning the Ohm's law should be equally easy or difficult (i.e it depends whether the student wants to understand it or not) no matter whether the teacher/tutor is working in high end or low end school.
I am sure you see some connection between the topic of this thread and the notion of the difference between theoretical and practical knowledge. I don't know what that connection would be.Also, i have heard about people who in theory have higher education than i have (diploma wise), but do not understand the side(de)fects about the Ohm's law (was taught to me at school when i was 12 or 13 years old). For example, they might connect heat generator or some other equipment which uses above average amount of power to the outlet, where the area of the electrical wire is 1,5 mm2 or even less instead of a 2,5 mm2 and they received the best grades on the physics class in school ...
I never said it said. You are arguing against a straw man. If you are just trolling, then that's to be expected.Its not as simple as you are boiling it down too. Simply being black or white does equate to more less struggle.
Until they choose to opt out.Not everyone or every place in America sees black in a negative light. In fact, often times people are envious of it. They copy and mimick black people and black culture.
What part of the phrase "some negative aspects" confuses you?Lmao
Oh man. This just gets weirder.
Suicide is a benefit to white privilege.
I am not responsible for your ignorance in the matter.Nobody is saying or supporting white nationalism. People support nationalism(patriotism). Period. You just keep adding the white onto it to feed your narrative.
You mean, like claiming someone said increased suicide was a benefit?Why cant you people actually discuss things like adults and stop with putting words in people's mouths?
I'm OK with patriotism, but not so much nationalism, which has spawned quite a few wars in the modern era. My apologies if this is an aside re the thread subject.People support nationalism(patriotism).
IMHO, basic laws in math and physics are still same. Maybe it is different in US, but here the elementary school books about math and physics that were published during the Soviet time (and in theory should be in poorer quality compared to those books that are now published in US or Estonia) have IMHO aged well. Assuming the student wants to learn; that was visible during the Brezhnev time and also now. Or are you saying that currently life in black dominated suburbs are even worse, than life was in Estonia during the Soviet regime, specially between 1940-1953 when although the living conditions were what they were the youngsters still managed to graduate elementary, secondary(high) school and even university?Yes, the ability to buy newer books and more immersive teaching materials can make a substantial difference in the quality of the instruction.

Thats a lie and you know it.lol @ those who think white supremacy is some extreme fringe position. It's mundane and mainstream. Neo-Nazis are the ideology's extreme fringe, much like ISIS is at Islam's extreme fringe.
As Thriller sig says, get educated.
Nah, the problem is your ignorance of your people's history. That's all.Thats a lie and you know it.
The problem is your definition of white supremacy. You have weaponized it and think you can apply it to whatever you want.
Prove that is main stream. You cant.
As thriller has done, so have you. You got propagandized.
I appreciate your honesty. I know many conservative are worried about being shouted down, and I am glad you either don't have that worry or have chosen to disregard it.It will make me sound cold-hearted, but I would consider that equality.
I have been on some of these programs myself, and my third child is on them now. They make the difference between starvation and food scarcity, between homelessness and living in a less safe neighborhood. I agree they meet one type of baseline, but don't approach equality/equity.I would hope that the parent(s) of the impoverished student took advantage of social welfare programs designed to ensure that all young people have their basic needs taken care of (Welfare, food stamps, low income housing, Head Start). I don't think these efforts qualify as equality or equity, but rather a baseline of needs that should be met for a young person. These efforts are not creating equity, based on the results. If your Dad is in jail and Mom is never home because she's busy working two jobs (or worse), it's going to be near impossible to provide a path for this student to excel academically or in life. Even if social programs were better and more effective, it would not create equity among all subsets (race, gender, ethnicity, etc.) of Americans.
I had not really thought about that. Looking into a couple of studies, like this one, I think there is less of a need, at least in regards to tests like the SAT. As family wealth increases, the effect of wealth on the SAT scores diminishes.Also, does the same push for equity apply between an upper-class student and middle-class student? The upper-class student goes to a private school, better teachers, access to unlimited tutoring, internship experiences, etc. How do we even the playing field between these two students?
I don't know anyone who thinks equality of outcomes is something to be fixed on the result end. If you believe all people are basically the same, equality of outcome would be the result of equality of circumstances and opportunity.I would describe this as equality. Again, to me, equity is a focus on the end result to force people or subsets of people to all have equal outcomes. The student with dyslexia is going to face challenges in life that many other will not and will likely have an impact on their quality of life (regardless of assistance provided on a test).
I'm on board with trying to remove certain disadvantages in an attempt to create equal opportunity. As mentioned, we are already attempting to do this through many social welfare programs, among other efforts. Have these efforts had a significant impact on equality of outcome? Not really. Expecting an equality of outcome based on equal starting points is the wrong approach.
Nah,Nah, the problem is your ignorance of your people's history. That's all.
I don't feel qualified to comment on Soviet-era teaching methods, nor current Estonian teaching methods, let alone compare them to the variety of teaching methods used in the US. I have no idea how they compare the teaching methods of modern-day US schools in poor or middle-class communities.IMHO, basic laws in math and physics are still same. Maybe it is different in US, but here the elementary school books about math and physics that were published during the Soviet time (and in theory should be in poorer quality compared to those books that are now published in US or Estonia) have IMHO aged well.

Well, I'm not in politics, and I don't know anyone on this board outside of this board, so I have no reason to care whether they think I'm enlightened.I'm so sick of this crap. It's just a political tool and so many of you are so eager to show how enlightened you are and how you care and are such a good person.
Well, I've watched this kind of crap for 50 years and I don't buy any of it.
Proof? lol. I might get back to this and explain it for the benefit of those with actual intellectual curiosity. And you can read it and dismiss it then.And still waiting for your proof of main stream white supremacy.
I know I will never get it though.
I just want it to be main stream that you make **** up. So Ill be covering this topic 24/7
Yep. All facts matter. https://www.weeklystandard.com/jeffrey-h-anderson/obamas-historically-bad-economy
I agree there.My whole point, especially since this thread is about race, was that Obama did less than I expected to improve the lives of the impoverished especially minorities.
Well, going by here, 5, 12, 13, 17, 19, and 23 qualify.Can anybody point to any legislation he pushed or signed off on which was designated to improve the lives of those in poverty hell?
During the Soviet time the main books belonged to school and were recycled. Some were used maybe even for 10 seasons. Everybody received them at the beginning of the season (had to cover them with protective paper) and gave back to school in spring.Instead, let me give you an example. At my kids schools, every year they were given work books. These are books designed to be cut up, torn apart, written on, and other-wise physically manipulated, which allow children to engage with the material physically as well as mentally. This improves student understanding and outcomes. However, work books are expensive. Not all school systems can afford to give each child two or three such books every year as a supplement to the text. Further, because you always have to buy the latest work book, you have to have the latest text to accompany it. Not all school systems can afford to replace their texts at this rate. Since the work books are used two-three times per week, they have a long-term, incremental, building effect on child learning.
I can pull out another five or six additional teaching methods that are much more accessible to middle-class children, if you like.
