Fix Education
Education is the key to enabling future generations to prosper, however the current approach taken by the United States (among other countries) is not working. I want to know what you think is wrong, and how you would fix it. The website consists of a survey of 4 detailed questions. Please take your time to answer them. We will share our findings with the world. Thank you!

Nice, I've been complaining a lot about the existing education system recently, and I'm glad I'm not alone. I filled it out, and sent it on to some friends. Is there any way to be notified when the results are posted?

I'll try to add an email notification list when I have the time (probably over the Thanksgiving break). The problem I may run into is that I'm not quite so sure when we'll be ready to report our findings, it could take months or years, depending on the popularity of the site. I'll keep you updated though!

Oh wow. I write about this from a Malaysian perspective on EducateDeviate ( Answering your questions will involve thousands of words XD

divabat, I love your website. You have so many posts... are there any ones in particular that you would suggest I read first?

Even if you feel the need to write thousands of words, although I would prefer hundreds, I will read them all. Changing the way we educate is a complicated topic, and I hope that the site will simply spark debate. I know that the questions I ask are very open-ended and will induce many people to write a large amount, but I guess that's the general idea.

Who knows, maybe I'll add a forum if it becomes popular enough.

If it helps, even though I haven't said so on the website, your text will be put through Markdown, allowing you to add formating to your whim if you so choose.
