[Xmca-l] Re: Asia tops global school rankings

Have you always lived with this kind of generalizations ?
Are you sure You've been appropriate with the formation of concepts (Vygotskian) in your mind ? A whole continent following the same NECESSARY life skill , without any development all through , without any learning like from the diad , seem to be completely linear , seems like to be a trait , a blood , a gene . Beware teaching in CALSS !! Were we not just attacking , criticizing an old scholar at the threshold of a farewell to all for his supposedly neuronal particularization , individuation , say , acculturation ? Now what can we do with a cultural continentalization ?  
What was we read about a tribal identifying themselves with the red parrots and the like ?
So fluid in speech but no alteration in primary functions !! Vygotsky's bad luck !!
Vygotsky : Nature-bound kids being tested , independent from speech , saw the whole picture not the single individual objects in it and the relations therefrom . Now why is it that Your supreme person cannot see the Simians in their totality , partitioning the whole picture into dissected parts ; again bad luck for Our Teacher , Vygotsky ? Noble people don't talk like this , Americans included . It's just one  case which goes against Vygotsky's findings !?

It's all right, Peter. Cheating is a necessary life skill; this result
is measuring the fact that the Asians are better at it than we are,
hence are bound to succeed in life.

Now where was that irony emoticon...
