Education and opportunity and “how schools do things wrong” are one of my focuses for youth rights. This book is the first one I’m going to buy in a long time. It just came out today.
Mind you, I enjoyed math and am good at it. But I remember declaring to my mother in middle school, “Mom, I think I know everything I need to know in math”. She mocked me but it turns out I was right. I have other proofs as well. I use math all of the time but nothing beyond 8th grade math and Excel and a little programming and statistics, which, it turns out is _exactly_ what a DIFFERENT mathematics professor than this one conjectures. Blew my mind to be so perfectly described.. and I live in Excel.
Anyway, this _is_ a part of youth rights because it’s bad enough they’re forced through school but they to be forced unnecessary things that … well, I’ll write for 20 pages if I get started.
This quote is from a DIFFERENT professor of mathematics, who is working on something similar right now from the university of georgia… and being nailed SO perfecty was uncanny. I’m not an engineer. I didn’t go to these schools. Yet he’s describing me.
