It's hard not to feel sorry for her. I'd lay the blame at an education system that didn't engage her imagination or recognise her individually unique gifts.
Yeah, education, and educators, seem to be stuck negotiating trade unions when trying to identify and weed out their terrible practitioners.

Having all of the 'good work' exposed online (via new 'school from home' requirements cropping up) will make it a bit easier for independent assessors to see what is truly valuable, and what is suitable for trimming.

Teachers don't control or devise education policy - they implement it.
Rationalia relies on voluntary donations. There is no obligation of course, but if you value this place and want to see it continue please consider making a small donation towards the forum's running costs.
Details on how to do that can be found here.

Teachers might, but I was talking about the broader catagory 'educators'.

The head of the Beaufort Delta school board was quoted in the paper as saying that she had to scream at her teen every day to get him to go to school.

That's our administration.

I'm sure yours is MUCH better though, and always working seamlessly with their unions.

Asshole governor trumps Trump. I had to renew a drivers license but did it by mail. They used the old picture.

Having read the Wikipedia article about her, I am surprised she did not finish up as an overdosed meth head in a morgue of some nondescript midwestern US town. Something Stephen J. Gould is quoted as saying seems apposite: "I am, somehow, less interested in the weight and convolutions of Einstein’s brain than in the near certainty that people of equal talent have lived and died in cotton fields and sweatshops."
So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton

There is a projected 201 000 number of deaths in the USA by October 2020.
https://covid19.healthdata.org/united-states-of-america

...not taking into account spreader events like Trump rallies.
It could be even worse than that. How exactly are they going to stop it? They don't seem to want to do it now after it's killed so many people.
We might need to check again in two weeks time and see how the Tulsa event bent the curve.
:worried: Does seem as if the cases are increasing, 128 443 deaths and no sign of peaking. :worried:
The good news is that the projection has gone down to only 175 000 deaths by October.

The number of new cases per day in the US is still very high, usually well over 40,000, but the number of deaths per day seems to have decreased. As I think I said earlier, that may be because of the earlier deaths of the most vulnerable, and/or some better treatments for those in intensive care...

There could be some changes in the virus too. The less lethal it is, the wider it will spread. It could go on for 2 years.

Sure, the evolution of the virus towards lower lethality is possible. However, this virus is so infectious in the early stages, often before symptoms develop, that there would not be a big selective disadvantage to not killing one's host, since Covid-19 deaths occur after quite some time. It's viruses that kill quickly where the selective pressures for decreased lethality are most pronounced.

'Trump’s Latest Coronavirus Strategy: Hope Americans Learn to "Live With" It'
President Trump has spent months wishing away the coronavirus. But with cases spiking and the U.S. death toll approaching 130,000, that clearly hasn’t worked. So his administration has a new plan: convince people to just “live with” the virus.

The administration is “crafting messages” meant to “convince Americans that they can live with the virus,” the Washington Post reports. They want kids back in school, people back at work, and a certain level of viral death to be an accepted cost of American life:
White House officials also hope Americans will grow numb to the escalating death toll and learn to accept tens of thousands of new cases a day, according to three people familiar with the White House’s thinking, who requested anonymity to reveal internal deliberations. Americans will “live with the virus being a threat,” in the words of one of those people, a senior administration official.
There are some obvious flaws in this strategy. For starters, convincing people to “live with” tens of thousands of new cases and hundreds of new deaths a day will require convincing them that there’s no other choice. Other countries prove that’s not true. Indeed, differences across states show that decisions by leaders have the power to shape the trajectory of the outbreak.

Trump doesn’t seem concerned about these strategic flaws. The pivot to encouraging people to just “live with” coronavirus has already begun. Over the weekend, the president said “99 percent” of coronavirus cases are completely harmless, a completely made up statistic with no grounding in reality. But as Trump encourages people to go back to pre-pandemic living, the long term effects of COVID-19 are believed to include “impaired lung function, neurological problems and cognitive deficits,” according to the Times.
