I was just looking at the charts on a screen.
I was like, what is that?
But then I thought, what if I looked at a map of the United States?
I mean, it’s a pretty big country.
So what if we did a little bit of geography and looked at the states and cities that are closest to where I live?
You know, if I were to ask my wife, what are the top ten most populous cities in the country?
She’d probably say, New York.
She doesn’t even live in New York City, but New York, New Jersey.
And that’s kind of the same with the cities that you’ve listed.
So it’s not really the best metric for measuring a country’s education, but it’s certainly a way to measure it.
But what about a city like Chicago?
It’s a big city, but not really well-represented.
And what about Milwaukee?
I think they’re both fairly well-run.
And where are you on that?
Well, I live in Chicago, so I’m a little disappointed, but I’m happy to know that they’re doing something to improve their schools.
And so, we’ll see.
But that’s not the whole story.
When it comes to the actual amount of time students spend in school, it has a lot to do with the amount of money that is being spent on it.
So when you have a population that is so heavily dependent on government, it makes sense to put a lot of money into it.
It’s also important to look at the kinds of things that are actually being taught in schools.
In terms of technology, it looks like the technology that is taught in our schools is very outdated.
And there are so many different kinds of technology that are used in schools that are just not getting the attention that they deserve.
So, in terms of how we educate our kids, we really need to think about what kind of tools we have in place to help our kids learn.
If you look at technology that was developed by universities, it tends to be focused on the humanities.
That’s why we have technology that teaches math, that teaches history, and that teaches geography.
We’re also in the process of building up new technologies, so that we’re not only teaching the humanities, but we’re also doing STEM.
STEM is the science that’s in the digital realm.
And we know that kids who are exposed to STEM are more likely to be interested in the world outside of school, and they’re more likely than kids who haven’t had that exposure to the world in the classroom.
So there’s a lot more we can do.
But when it comes time to decide how we’re going to invest in education, it really comes down to this.
The truth is that our schools are just barely making up for all the money that’s being spent, because they’re just not really equipped to educate our students.
That means that we have to invest more in what is actually helping kids learn, and then we have the ability to use technology to help teach them.
So we have a lot that we can look to to help educate our children, and a lot we can use.
That includes things like digital technology, which is great, but what about all the other things that we already have that are helping kids do things?
Well in our homes, we use a lot.
We have an amazing home automation system.
We can set up our house with a remote control.
And our kids can use it.
And, of course, we have digital literacy, and digital technology that we’ve developed for our schools.
But I think that we need to make sure that we use those tools and technologies to the maximum extent that we are able.
And I think it’s really important to have a system in place that helps kids learn what’s actually important.
And then to make those tools available to everyone so that they can use them to help make sure their kids have the best education possible.
