    Regardless, I'm glad there are those willing to share experience of being in my shoes. Its encouraging, to say the least.

    YOU have 'backed up' my position
    your back-handed insults will not help you

    As recently as 20 years ago, the United States was ranked No.1 in high school and college education. Much of the boom in American education during the second half of the 20th century was fueled by the Montgomery G.I. Bill, which provided scholarships and student loans to veteran service personnel returning from World War II. Having matured on the battlefield, thousands of returning troops eagerly seized the opportunity to improve their postwar prospects in the civilian world, leading to a transformation of the American middle class in the 1950s and 1960s.


    In 2009, the United States was ranked 18th out of 36 industrialized nations.

    I refuted you're claim (#42). Your response was that I was being defensive and that you didn't care enough to refute it:

    Spout nonsense all you like, you have really only proven how curmudgeonly you can be.

    And ultimately this is why we have forums like this- where people can respectfully exchange knowledge and ideas. Nobody knows everything- I am still learning day to day things I could not have imagined 5 years ago.

    you and I have one thing in common, spouting nonsense

    that may be the case
    but the fact is they work harder

    they do not ask others to dig a ditch for them
    and then whine when asked why not dig it yourself
    then they have the gall to tell you HOW to dig it! lol
    and when done tell you what is wrong with it
    roll up you sleeves and dig the dang ditch!!!

    I don't think Ranes was asking you to dig a ditch for him. But to each his own. BTW, there are plenty of substation in India (and else where) without breaker failure schemes and bus protection. Zone 2 and Zone 3 takes care of that for you when you get the numbers right

    Look up "belittling" and you'll see this as an example.

    The thing is, I agree with you about the decline in public education that this country is experiencing. If I said why I think that is, however, it would immediately get the thread shut down.

    FWIW, I do not believe that colleges and universities are affected as much other than that they have a lower quality of entering students.

    Well this has certainly drifted away from the topic so time to close.

    Ranes, feel free to continue participating here.
