Facing America’s High Dropout Rates

This is the VOA Special English Education Report, from

Fewer than sixty percent of students now entering four-year American colleges are likely to graduate. The completion rate is lower than for almost any other wealthy country. Poor and minority students have the worst graduation rate.

A new book about America’s public universities explores the complex causes of the high dropout rate. The book is called “Crossing the Finish Line.”

President Obama wants the United States to again have the world’s highest percentage of college graduates by two thousand twenty. But to finish college, children first have to reach the starting line by getting there.

On September eighth, the president gave a nationally broadcast speech to students about the importance of staying in school. He spoke on the first day of classes at a high school in Virginia. He talked about personal responsibility, and used himself as an example of someone who overcame difficulties.

President Obama said: “My father left my family when I was two years old, and I was raised by a single mother who struggled at times to pay the bills and wasnt always able to give us things the other kids had. There were times when I missed having a father in my life. There were times when I was lonely and felt like I didnt fit in.”

But he told students that problems in their own lives should not stop them from learning. Mister Obama said: “That’s no excuse for talking back to your teacher, or cutting class or dropping out of school. Thats no excuse for not trying.”

This was not the first presidential speech to students. Ronald Reagan spoke from the White House in nineteen eighty-eight. And George H.W. Bush spoke from a school in Washington in nineteen ninety-one.

But many conservatives criticized plans for the speech. Some called it “socialized education” or federal interference in local schools. Others feared it would be too political. Some schools decided not to show the speech. But the White House released the text the day before the speech, and that calmed a lot of critics.

On September sixth, on the CBS program “Face the Nation,” Education Secretary Arne Duncan said thirty percent of students do not graduate from high school. He called the dropout rate “staggering.” It represents more than a million students every year who enter ninth grade but do not complete twelfth grade.

And that’s the VOA Special English Education Report.

According to statistics of the World Health Organization 800 million people (of whom 200 million are under 5 years of age ) suffer” chronicle hunger” (=described as “protein deficiency”medically) .Actually I do not belive in the reality of these numbers because a person just with a small piece of land can grow his foods or he can get his protein need from the eggs of 2-3 chickens or from the milk of one goat.Let’s not forget that Gandhi who founded India fighting against the biggest powers of his time had only one goat and for years he just lived on the milk he took from the goat. This was also what I heard from the intellectuals&academicians of the African countries when I went to meetings under name ” Save Africa from hunger”. They were really hurt and offended by being called so and explained that “mostly wars make people migrate to other places and this makes them lose their lands and thus foods”.But still the methods I will explain you for obtaining proteins and solving hunger are at least useful against poverty and chronicle diseases of our day like Diabetes , Cancer and High cholesterol.
So what’s chronical hunger or Medically described protein deficiency ?We need 22 amino acids daily that we take from proteins. 14 of these amino acids can be produced by our body but 8 of them can not. So these 8 are “called essential amino acids” and foods containing these amino acids are called First Grade protein Foods like meat,poultry, dairy products,eggs and soya.According to medical considerations, the daily protein need of a person is 0.75 gr/kg..Namely a 50 kg person needs 37,5 gr 1. grade protein a day If we add 30 % defatted(containing 51% protein) soy flour-75 gr- to 250 gr bread-which is almost the global standard- an avarage person’s daily protein requirement will be fulfilled perfectly.Such a “SMART BREAD” is the shortest solution for chronicle hunger of the world .In 1995 I wrote an article about the subject in Turkey and the municipality of Sivas city began to produce this bread after consulting me and the Medicine Faculty in their city. They put only 5 % defatted soya flour in bread.This added the nutrition value of one glass of milk(200 grams= 20 cents )in each bread & they produced 20.000 breads /day. There was a profit of 40.000USD/day to people which meant 1,5 million USD/year and the total profit was 3 million USD in the 2 years they made it. I wrote that if this was done nationwide with 30 % soya flour there would be a profit of about 4 milliard USD/year compared to meat consumption but as you may guess the politicians did not pay the faintest attention to my words. It is clear that the reason of hunger in the world is again us human beings.Of course such a protein intake would also cure chronicler diseases like Diabetes , Cancer and High cholesterol in Turkey and at least 30 milliard dollars spent for these illnesses per year would be saved.
Anyway the second way is ,as you know it is possible to make products like milk,cheese,yogurt,meatball,etc from soybeans. The problem here again as you know is the high cost of soymilk machines .Here I show you 2 inventions from me to make these machines 10 times cheaper and better.

The third way is extracting proteins from leaves here are some photos showing how simply and quickly you can obtain it. and I am giving you their webaddress for detailed info. Best Regards
