Add this to another station Dr. Mark Bauerlein, Friday, 1-13-17 (10.08MB; download) -- We welcomed Dr. Mark Bauerlein, author of "The Dumbest Generation," to our 90 minute discussion on education, the adverse impact of the digital age on students, and serious issues facing both students and our educational system in the country. We applied much of what our guest had to say to aerospace and science. Our discussion was far ranging, including primary school through college, new trends toward college safe places, and other politically correct developments moving rapidly across our educational institutions and systems. During the second segment of our program, we talk about the upper 10% of students in targeted fields such as the STEM fields, their potential leadership roles, but also in many cases their lack of knowledge across a wide range of cultural and historical areas. We also talked about college administrations including the Ivy League and top tier schools, plus the essential role of the individual and the family in improving education in our country. While this program may seem off topic to some listeners, education remains key for continued aerospace, commercial space, entrepreneurial, and science development and expansion. Our guest puts many of the issues in the spotlight with a fresh, new and important perspective. Read the full summary of this program at www.thespaceshow.com for this date, Friday, Jan. 13, 2017.
