    US colleges are paying their presidents like CEOs and treating students like customers, using their tuition to foot the bill.

    It’s a broken system.

    Should More Teachers Be Like This? God, No. But Still, It’s Pretty Cool.

    The point of this bizarre video is to inspire people who would like to see the United States become more competitive with other parts of the world in math and science. By showing the amazing effect STEM teachers can have on future generations, hopefully more math, science, tech, and engineering undergraduates and recent graduates will consider a career in these explosively educational fields.

    Hundreds of Colorado students are fighting back against dangerous text book changes

    A Colorado school district has come under fire for trying to change its history curriculum — and its own students have schooled it on what real American history is.

    Earlier this month, the school district of Jefferson County, Colo. — the second-largest district in the state — announced it was considering a change to the Advanced Placement U.S. history curriculum to “promote citizenship, patriotism, essentials and benefits of the free-market system, respect for authority and respect for individual rights” and not “encourage or condone civil disorder, social strike or disregard of the law.”

    If the proposal passes, the district’s conservative-majority school board would establish a committee to review textbooks and other classroom materials to see if they meet this new criteria. In other words, any textbook that didn’t seem “patriotic enough” (an aggressively arbitrary and potentially very dangerous label) would be cut.

    Her Idea May Seem A Little Out There, But C’mon. Take A Look At This Bus.

    For many low-income communities, if you don’t have access to a computer — that’s it. Good luck keeping up in our fast-paced, high-tech world. When this woman recognized that problem unfolding for the kids in her town, she remembered something her dad told her when she was a young girl and turned his words into something brilliant.

    I Can’t Even Be Mad At The People Who Fell For The Discovery Channel’s Lie. They Made It Look True.

    Shark Week is absurdly popular. Maybe it’s not absurd since sharks are pretty much awesome. It’s not surprising that people are hungry for information about these tantalizingly terrifying beasts. So shouldn’t Discovery Channel be … you know … informing people?
