Sunday soapbox

Sunday’s soapbox is yours to use as you will – within the bounds of decency and absence of defamation. You’re welcome to look back or forward, discuss issues of the moment, to pontificate, ponder or point us to something of interest, to educate, elucidate or entertain, amuse, bemuse or simply muse, but not abuse.

    Here is the report in the NZ Herald, lifted from the Washington Post

    Australia was involved in this crime as well apparently – they have admitted it

    So John Phillip Key is set to chair the World Leaders Forum on Syria on Thursday I believe

    And M. McCully is currently chairman of the Security Council as this major meltdown between the US and Russia goes down

    Well that’s center stage…

    Four maths teachers at the school pored over two of the 20 test questions for 15 minutes, scribbling their workings across the length of a white board, and still could not find X.

    The exam is linked in the story and it isn’t that hard for me but then again I’m not a maths teacher but an old engineer

    As to whether it is too hard for the level which it was set for I couldn’t comment but if the kids maths teachers can’t do it – well that might imply they might have the wrong maths teachers and that is where the problem really lies
