小学私校反智反疫苗,美国基础教育质量堪忧

今天nyt报道了一件荒谬的事情把我看笑了
简单说就是一个私校反疫苗,老师居然教孩子远离打了疫苗的父母
真是对美国基础教育质量感到担忧
文章后面说该校学费3万刀一年
这个数额对k12来说不低了,结果就这种教育水平?感觉付了钱的家长心里一定各种mmp

特例曝出来而已,林子大了什么鸟都有

这就是美国啦。人家反疫苗反5g反whatever不代表教育水平不行,反正stem教育并不是大多数美国学校的重点。

Despite Centner’s eccentricities, Tatar had been pleased with the education his son was getting, with chiropractors, mindfulness coaches and a personal chef preparing organic, gluten- and sugar-free meals. Yelling and time-outs were banned. The school prioritized emotional well-being, language immersion — in Mandarin, French, Spanish, Italian and German — and physical health and nutrition.

Still, many other parents and teachers rushed to defend the academy, a $15,000- to $30,000-per-year haven for those who believe the antidote for the virus lies in nutrition and wellness and that masks are ineffective. They celebrated the freedom they found in the choice to wear a mask, or not, or to get a vaccine, or not, saying they were more scared of the shot than the virus. And they lauded Leila Centner as a visionary with the guts to make her views known.

“This is one of the only schools where there’s been no masking, no social distancing,” said one parent who didn’t want his name published. “Compared to all other schools in the area and around the country, it provided a nice option for us because the social benefits … outweighed the risk of COVID.

“This woman is a hero,” he added.

这文章有点意思。大致的说法就是人家是一贯反科学的,肯定有几个家长不满,但更多的家长是强烈支持。你想想,愿意交三万块钱把小孩送到这种学校的人都是啥样的,早就选择过了。

再引一段:When a Herald reporter toured the campus in 2019, Leila Centner said the preschool in the Design District had 135 cameras, with many placed in classrooms. The large number of cameras led teachers to fear they were being watched.

人家反智的事情不符合中国人的胃口,这个大搞天网监控的行为,大多数中国人应该很理解很支持吧。

按照中国的标准,美国的基础教育在很多方面是很原始很不可思议的。比如没有强制的教学标准;也没有详细的教学大纲,老师上课是可以随便讲的;在大多数小学,所有课程都是一个老师教的,很多老师,说实话,讲不好小学高年级的数学。这还是公立小学,私立小学更是没规矩。

美国也有!https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Betsy_DeVos

God bless her!

你要知道,至少有一半人的教育水平是低于平均值的。要是美国人人都那么牛逼的话,作为一个外国人,很难找到高薪好工作的。

Richard Hofstadter, Anti-intellectualism in American Life.
1966年的书,放到今天看也没啥问题。
People die, but people don’t change.

其实这正是说明了人类社会的发展并不需要大部分人都受过良好的教育。至于你说如果大部分人都反智又会怎么样,不要怕,这在民主社会才有问题,而集权社会老大根本不听屁民的。

stem的教育的结果的衡量本来就很有问题。你说像逆否命题这么简单不需要多少智力就能理解的事,985还一堆人应用的不利索,你觉得是大学生笨呢,还是他压根就没读书呢?要是提供了教育却没有人读,这又算教育了还是没有教育呢?

国内也有一大堆人觉得基站危害健康,360路由器甚至推出了孕妇模式,搜狐的老大甚至说5G会把人煮熟,这又是大佬们没受过教育,还是觉得大家都没受过教育直接顺应民意割一波韭菜?这造成社会问题没有?显然没有。

就算你受过了教育,你工作后又记得多少。

你真以为中国基础教育有多好?怕不是象牙塔里呆久了,我上次遇到个高考大省三本(按照常人逻辑等于我们帝都一本)文科生,让他指出几个国家都指不出来,连贵州贵阳都分不清楚。
多玩点游戏就懂了,有些人连中考大纲里的汉字都认不全

我只是看到这个新闻觉得挺搞笑的一开始发在闲聊板块供娱乐
然后被挪到政治版本了 :thinking:
discussion好像逐渐变成中美基础教育大讨论,但我一开始根本就没有要去比,因为我是觉得两个国家太多不一样可比性不高 :joy:

:rofl:起码美国的小朋友能看小熊维尼

私校基本都是教会建立的,反疫苗很正常
