How does the State of Texas cut 100,000 (projected) teachers without damaging the quality of education we deliver to our youth? It can't.

For those of us born before WWII started, we can all get lost in the good ol' days when we had 40 kids in our classrooms, did not have air conditioning, and in my case, we had a wood cook stove in our family home in western Texas. But those were not the good ol' days for everyone. In fact, for many of my school days we had no blacks or browns in my school because they had a shack in the flats that they used for a school house. In fact, we DID NOT get a better education than the kids today; we just like to brag that we did. Where is the proof that we did? Don't believe me; go take one of those state mandated high school exams my grand children take...and then publish your scores in this paper. The drop out rate back when we were in school was close to 50%, now it is a fourth of that. I am not sure how this argument rolled around to computers, but since you brought it up, let me address that. Library books are great, but I recently watched my grandson for three of four nights gather data from dozens books on line, including the Library of Congress, in the time it would have taken his parents to drive him to the nearest public library. (By the way those old cards are no longer in use in libraries; those card files are now all computerized). His research paper was competed in short order and he made an A. Computers means efficient use of time.

As far as math, I am very good with my college days slide rule, but why should I drag out that relic when a $9 Wal-Mart computer will give me the answer in blink...and its more accurate than my slide rule. I don't care if you value my opinion or not, (apparently you value only your own) but for you to view our past with rose colored glasses is a foolish exercise in nostalgia. Get with the program, 4th Gen, this is not 1952!
