How do you know a good teacher benefits up to $300,000 for a class but can't define what a good teacher is. That makes no sense

YES. I just wish it was much longer. for such a complex issue, it would've been great to go further in depth.

There's a racial component to this. If you believe the subconscious bias theory its reasonable to understand we're not doing well in our multiculturalism.

It was only a few years ago that Democrats wanted a strong border and limited immigration. What changed? The Media?.

Tony Kearney Dems have always wanted and still wants strong borders your the 1 being entirely swayed by the media considering you actual believe the false narrative being spun on the right and yes immigration reform is still a priority for dems just not banning Muslims and brown people because of they feel threatened by there otherness smh.

It looks like the Isis' parents managed to do one of the most important things: give their children the self-confidence they need to succeed in life. Congratulations for that.

Interesting perspective. Perhaps current or next generation of politicians should make note of this podcast. Moving ahead together, elites, blue-collar workers etc.. in many ways are faced with similar issues and have differing opinions as to how to best resolve. What is essential is the need for all to be respected for their core beliefs and values without fear of being stereotyped as being deficient or superior in expressing their concerns and feelings. Only then will there be a collective feeling that everyone is moving in the same direction.

One of the weirdest thing in Arabic is reading numbers. for example, if you want to read 1985 in Arabic it will be ( one thousand, nine hundred and five eighty). I have no idea why we swipe the last two numbers.

I was hoping this would be more of an analysis of why things had changed and why the #metoo movement feels influential now but just became about Israel whoever...hm disappointed

Everyone is so defensive. This is just research into the age old question of nature vs nurture. It's not a theory set in stone, just the exploration of the question. Often asking the question is more important than getting the answer.

I get that the research is about averages but as someone who identifies far more as a Conservative than a Liberal (although libertarian with conservative tendencies is more accurate) almost every distinguishing factor defined as characteristic of liberals is the preference I have. I'm messy, I have lots of books, I prefer mixed dogs, I love many ethnic foods, when someone steps on a nail I feel it... Across the board you could use all of these data points to convince yourself to a greater and greater degree of confidence that I was a liberal and you'd be laughably wrong. But I guess it's a matter of probabilities and the degree of certainty each factor has, I must be an extreme outlier.
