You'd be better off pounding your head against the wall. It's at least as productive and the wall doesn't actually enjoy your pain.

@SJ

I dont think I know, they may not be those exact works but examples of classical and modern scholars, artists, etc. Im not really interested in your minutia. if your saying that CAN provinces dont teach the literary canon, or that therm-dynamics doesnt work in Canada the way it works int he rest of the universe, or that in CAN there are more than three primary colors, etc thats crazy talk. I know its true and every other educator knows what they can expect out of CAN students at various grade levels. Just because some politician or MP doesnt sit on a throne and decree that X will be taught at Y doesnt mean there isnt a NC.

If the similarities are widespread how is that not a national curriculum, again I can only assume that your definition of an NC consists of some political designee decreeing specific content that and only that is a NC.

We disagree

Rest assured @SJ that every claim of merit worthy of a response, I have responded too.

@WT123

I agree, why contributors think that Im going to substitute their position for mine because they deem it so, or they disagree is equally inconceivable to me.

LOL - when your clarifications are so fuzzy that what you really mean is there must be global education new world order, because, heck, it is what everybody is taught everywhere, then yes, I agree. Too funny :-)

@SJ

What I find funny is this idea that CAN provinces are somehow like different nations when it comes to education, in so much as your focus is on trivial differences.

Well, I find it funny that you think countries are so different when it comes to education, much as their focus is on trivial differences.

@SJ

So now a CAN Uni like UBC is going to accept a NK student? You are too funny

According to your reasoning, if UBC accepts them then it must be because of the NC. So if a NK student can get accepted - and how do you know they can't or haven't?), then it must be because NK uses Canadian NC according to your logic! :-)
