Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

More Self-Administered Lobotomies

In California, parents are pulling their children out of schools that are “too academically driven” (or possibly “too Asian”). Don't those Asians know it is positively Un-American to do any actual studying? How dastardly!

On a serious note, it looks like some Asians are preparing their own self-administered lobotomies. I wonder if American school systems fail, not because students can't learn in them, but because they train students to be the parents of bad students. As long as that is the case, the United States will need immigrants to raise an educated second generation. Given the birth rates in the rest of the world, eventually we're going to run out of immigrants.

On another serious note, the article in question The New White Flight was linked as one of “Today's Headlines” at the Dan Stein Report (an anti-immigration blog) as though it were a reason to oppose immigration.
