#2 Home school
Then online uni
= money saved.

Trump needs to give home schoolers a voucher for saving the school's system money to be redeemed if/when their kids get better than average results.

#3 Somehow the Chinese, Egyptians, Mayans, et al figured out how to do some math in their architectural construction and calendars well before contact with any 'white' civilization. BTW, Brittany, those are Indo-Arabic glyphs you are using there. Europeans didn't get around to appropriating using them till after 1492 and in particular that little '0' thingy.

#8 “Do you remember,’ he went on, ‘writing in your diary, “Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four”?’
‘Yes,’ said Winston.
O’Brien held up his left hand, its back towards Winston, with the thumb hidden and the four fingers extended.
‘How many fingers am I holding up, Winston?’
‘Four.’
‘And if the party says that it is not four but five — then how many?'”

-- George Orwell, “1984”
